Although the test is very close, this is the place to address any questions or concerns. :geek:

LA County Regionals is this Saturday, March 6, 2010. I heard there's going to be a storm, even in the early morning. Stinks for my Egg-O-Naut.... :shock:

Anyone else here in LA Regionals?

Good luck with your tournament. Actually wouldn't that be good for Egg?
Storm = windy conditions = longer time aloof for Egg

That is a possibility, however the stormy conditions significantly increase the luck factor (lucky teams though not necessarily better get an updraft, unlucky teams get negatively affected by the water and wind). The storm also increases the risk of the rocket not flying straight and thus the rocket does not fly as high (because the distance travelled in a non-straight direction is more than a straight vertical direction) which means less time aloft.

Also got some info from the regional coordinator that said that if it rains at anytime during the competition, the entire Egg-O-Naut event would be cancelled. Now I'm just hoping we get to launch. :P

Epic Fail for me. Rained during my launch but not during any other team's launch, rocket flew from one building to another (and we, not the event captains, had to break into the building and climb the roof to retrieve the rocket in the soaking rain), and the egg managed to crack both times (first time an egg has cracked for us at competition). It's extremely depressing, but what can I say? lol :lol: Anatomy & Physiology and Ornithology felt like victories for me (I was certain I got a perfect on the Anatomy test and finished in 25 minutes b/c the tiebreaker was time; and I was sure I got almost all of the Ornithology) yet I managed to not medal in either. Yet another disappointment. lol :P

And finally, my team made it to State, but half the team will not go because it conflicts with prom, therefore we're probably not even going to participate in State. Oh well, I was hoping for redemption. What a terrible way to end this SciOly year. :lol:

Nice. You are in a tough regional tourney. You have Arcadia and NoHo in your bracket yes?
Who got first?

Sorry to hear about your problems in Egg - O - Naut at your recently completed regionals. Would more padding in your egg capsule help?

Who finished first in Egg - O- Naut at the 2010 L.A. regionals and what was their time in the air?

Sorry about the hard EnviroChem test guys :P

Edit:
San Gabriel won Egg-O-Naut (they finished 32nd overall) but the scores actually weren't counted towards the final score
I could probably find you the time but that takes too much effort...

Meh I wish I could go.

Valencia sounds like a place to go to. Isn't that where 6 Flags is?
