Triple E B [TX Trial]

Postby Jim_R » November 24th, 2009, 8:30 pm

Discussion for Triple E (Endangered, Extinct, and Exotic Species of Texas), a trial event for Texas Division B.
-The path of the Administrator is beset on all sides by the inequities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men.

-Nothing\'s gonna get deleted. We\'re gonna be like three little Fonzies here. And what\'s Fonzie like? Come on, what\'s Fonzie like?
-Cool?
-Correctamundo. And that\'s what we\'re gonna be. We\'re gonna be cool. Now, I\'m gonna count to three, and when I count three, you let go of your mouse, and back away from the keyboard. But when you do it, you do it cool. Ready? One... two... three.

"Students will need to know when the animals were listed in Texas" -- does that mean the original listing date only, or all subsequent changes and current status?

gracias, paleo. i think this could potentially be a real event for many states, for i like how it hasn't really been explored in other events mostly.

This was supposed to be a pilot event at the 2009 SONT but they cancelled it at the last moment. I had even started studying for it...

I think it would be an interesting event, though I have never actually competed in it.
When it comes to the future, there are three kinds of people: those who let it happen, those who make it happen, and those who wonder what happened.
