Rock My World B [NJ Trial]

Postby Jim_R » February 10th, 2010, 12:12 pm

Discussion for Rock My World, a B Division trial event in New Jersey.
-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.

to all people of NJ out there who might do this event next year, ask your teammates who did this event what the test was like. Because the event supervisors had the same test for 2 years in a row, idk if they'll change it.

I like the trial techs. They balance out the events. there are hardly any national tech events.
