If anyone here has any knowledge about Hovercraft, pls go ahead and put some stuff on the wiki page; schools will start up in 1-2 months, and the page currently contains almost nothing.

So now that we know the events, does anyone remember when the short event descriptions come out?

I'd think they're updated sometime around when rules are released (if I'm not mistaken, the description in section 1 of the rules for each event is the same as the short event descriptions).

I was wondering about this just yesterday too. Looking at the Internet Archive from the past three years, they appear to have been posted sometime around late July/early August.

Also, a bit more stuff on the Fast Facts Wiki would be nice, if anyone wants something to do.

For SOSI you have to physically go there, they won't mail it to you
I'll be there. I could probably ask specific event questions during the sessions if anybody has them.

The tentative event list on soinc.org says "Material Science," while the old name of the event was "Materials Science." Does anyone know which name is being used this year?

The preliminary rule book says "Materials Science" if that helps

FYI, I received my physical copies of the rules manual today, hot off the press. Other people should start getting them in the coming days too!
