Even so, it doesn't take that many practice events to know how your team works and get comfortable with them.

On the other hand, if you overpractice, if something surprising comes up in the event and you have to change your style a little, that would be really hard. :|

This is why you don't always practice with similar events. The more different events you try, the more likely you are to be at least somewhat prepared for what they throw at you, and the more comfortable you'll be with adjusting your 'style' to fit what you're given.

I suggest we keep this conversations in PM's, or a couple moderators and a few members will yell at us.

Yes, I have the rules of ED.

well, i think we could list out what kind of topics we had to do in previous years. that way, we all can practice from that list.

i just remember a topic having to do with how much weight tape can hold. (strength of tape?)

Ok, everyone, if you want a good topic, try this one. Get someone else to read it if you're in ED so this'll be a surprise.

Topic: ADHESION

Materials:

1x Ceramic Tile
1x Sandpaper
1x Cardboard
5x Bandaids
1x Tape, Double Sided, Roll of
1x Scotch Tape, Roll of
1x Pair of Scissors.
1x Length of String
5x Washers
and if you get really picky
1x Paper Bag.
1x Ziploc Bag

Oh yes, everyone, if you get a topic on adhesion, yelling at the tape won't work.
