05 Season (last MPC year) - 8th grade
06 season - 9th grade
07 season - 10th grade
08 season - 11th grade
09 season -12th grade
10 season (current) - graduated.

???

I was specifically referencing MPC. MPC does not equal MPB.

Is it just me, or does this year's MP look deceptively simple to build?

You are correct. This year's MP is in fact very easy to build. The teams at summer fun camp were able to build working devices that got over half of the available points in less than 12 hours.

Expect 12 to 15 way ties for first at Nationals this year.

Agreed. To many simple things, and too many "do this, then do this" steps. I spent a LOT of time looking over film, seeing if there was something I could use come REAL tourney time, in order to break the 20-way tie for first place I expect to see.

Who knows? Maybe some people want a 20-way tie for first so they can shoot the event down once and for all.

How do you guys know it's going to be easy? Did you already get a peek at the rules?

how is the timing judged?
for example if your time was 29.6seconds would the judges round it to 30 or keep it the same?

Yes. I ran the Mission Possible class at the IU Summer Fun Camp. We used the draft rules and all students who attended got copies. They were easy.

If you want a copy, contact one of the students who attended the camp. They shouldn't be too hard to find around here. ;)

For the event, can you have intermediate steps between the ones they list or is it only those specific ones they mention? Also, are there always bonus steps or are there years without them? Were there any listed on the sheet you got robotman? (The last part of page 2 was cut off, so I wasn't 100% sure)
