I think the event list for division C in the intro may be a bit off.. judging from the wiki on event listings (https://scioly.org/wiki/index.php/Compr ... nt_Listing), Wright stuff has only been gone for 2 years, so I think Elastic Launched Glider may be coming back in place of helicopters instead. Just a thought, obviously nothing's certain about event predictions! :D

We typically predict off the SOSI schedule, since it's a workshop for coaches to prepare for next year.

Hmm thats interesting! I guess it is going to be wright stuff next year... just a little confused as to why they would cut ELG out of the event rotation and run wright stuff (2015-16), helicopters (2017-18), then wright stuff again (2019-).

I suspect they intend to "reverse" the rotation direction, so I'm thinking 2021 will be ELG in C and Helicopters in B.

Oh thats kinda cool! Do you know if they intend to switch the rotation for other events?

I don't even know why they're switching this one (or if that's what they're doing). The original purpose of having the flight events rotate from C to B was so that they didn't move from B to C along with competitors.

I can give some guesses on specific events if you would like.

Hmm... isn’t wright stuff going from B to C though this year? And yes, I’d love to hear what guesses you have!

Why don't the flying events happen simultaneously in B and C? Having mostly done events which happened simultaneously in B and C - the green gen/eco rotation, the different DP topics, wind power/thermo - I've wondered several times why that's not the case for flying too.

If there are issues / confusion about the list that's a simple fix, please email or PM. If it's about event rotations, there's a thread for it (viewtopic.php?f=4&t=11427&start=270). There's been a lot of posts recently (understandable, we just started), but this has been confusing people (some questions are being repeated / answers missed in the OP). The discussion isn't irrelevant, but a full, focused discussion about this is better in the other thread I linked.

Hey, just wondering if this was a typo or not—the first post says to send your resource to summer@scioly.org but send questions to summerscioly@scioly.org, are these different on purpose? Thanks!
Just trying my best...

The email to use is only summer@scioly.org, thanks for pointing out the typo (it's fixed now).

As for the notes, do they have to be typed up online and then emailed? Or can they be scanned written notes on loose-leaf?

We need to be able to read them / access them in a PDF. Please keep in mind two common issues with scanning handwritten notes: They may not be legible (then we can't read them...we'll tell you, but usually it's on you to fix it), and they can be difficult to edit / correct. As long as this isn't a bother for you, it's fine.
