I've seen tons of teams do that at different competitions I've been too, and haven't once saw someone say something to any of them.

I don't know. I keep all of my cheat sheets in a folder and carry around the folder the whole day. What my partner and I did for various events involving cheat sheets was print out one double sided copy and one two single sided copy (two single sided copies are easier for us to use). We then visit all the rooms before competition and ask them if they would allow single sided copies or were the just going to allow double sided copies. I'm not sure about sheet protectors though... I mean, I can't see the harm, but I guess the best thing to do is ask before competition for that as well.

Since we were talking about the eruption in Iceland a while back, I thought you guys might appreciate this:

QUICK QUESTION
Mountains DON'T form on divergent boundaries, right?
My Division is C as in Cat, providing the coach lets me on the team after missing the first meeting.

Attention partners: I will always, always be mad at you for something. Even if you study.

No, divergent boundaries create rifts or ridges, I do believe.

I'm pretty sure mountains do not form on divergent boundaries. About 98%.

This question would depend on how technical you get with your classification

The Mid Ocean Ridge are small mountains at a divergent plate boundary.

But in theory a mountain would not form at divergent boundaries.

Mountains can form at divergent boundaries. The Mid-ocean ridge is one example of this, as an underwater mountain range.

I would use the excuse that I only did one competition w/ DyPlan but since it was at state and I got third I can't really say that. Okay, yeah, rifts and ridges do form, but as robotman said it depends on how technical you get. Wikipedia? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Divergent_plate_boundary And that's also why I added a 2% disclaimer

Thanks guys. Another question: Do the tests tend to focus very much on Mohorovic discontinuity? Because I was taking a practice test and it went really in-depth on the subject, but I couldn't find much information on it anywhere.
