The Division B State competition is moving to SUNY Ulster.
O.O

I liked New Paltz... not that I'd be at Division B States anyway, but still...
double O.O
why are they changing the venue. I liked New Paltz too; i go to support the MS team.
That's also earlier than this year (and i mean before the pushed it back).
That's why they are changing the venue. New Paltz double booked the campus, twice. That's why the date kept moving.

Ulster is not as nice a campus, but it is about the same distance for the metro teams.

I've been to SUNY Ulster, and although I haven't seen much of the campus, it doesn't seem quite as nice as New Paltz, but there's still some nice space for if you have some time to kill. And maybe there will be enough time for the teams to catch their breath before Nats.

That's right. It was a pretty nice campus, if I remember correctly.

They probably didn't like how New Paltz changed the date on them twice.

Presumably. I think that's what Flavorflav said:

It is a nice campus, but it is in Rochester, which is a whole lot farther away for most teams.

Its unfortunate for me that it wasn't there. Rochester is a lot closer, and I have tons of family there.

But yeah, for the majority of the State, you would want something more centralized.

Oh, come on! Rochester? Seriously!
Do they have any idea how decentralized that is?
