CA-S has higher totals so receive lower # B1/C3
FINALLY someone is willing to tell us how this gets decided! I've been wondering about this for so long...
I don't know who wrote that in the document, but I know for a fact that's not correct.

They flip a coin to decide. SoCal's just really lucky.
Sorry, but how do you know better than the people who wrote that, aka the people that are literally organizing nationals?
Two years ago I knew stuff about rocks, minerals, experiments, and ecosystems, yay!
Last year I knew stuff about amphibians, reptiles, freshwater, and more experiments, yay again!
Now I'm learning stuff about oceanography, saltwater, and birds, yay for the third time!

From the looks of it, this has only been a consistent thing since 2014, so not nearly as lucky as I was thinking initially. Still pretty lucky though.

Yeah it's a little too early :P late November is the earliest that can reasonably be started, since at that point there will be a non-zero number of teams who have finished their 2020 season.

You mean, there will be 40-50 Montana teams that will have completed their season.

More like 130-140... NJ has ~120 total teams, and Montana is ahead of NJ in terms of number of teams in both divisions...
