So each state would report each teams scores in the event to be put in a computer that would rank every team that went to State's for the whole nation.
Events from different states are not necessarily comparable. It's not practically feasible to give the same test in every state.
Nothing new is being brought up in this thread. You might want to read what others have said before making your argument.
Yeah, a major thing is the list for ID events. If I remember correctly, Forestry had different lists depending on the region, so if I had studied the New York list and went to the California regionals...well, i wouldnt have done very well. So not every state has you learn the same things. Plus, if every region/state used the same event, every tournament would have to be on the same day to prevent people from getting answers, and that's not feasible at all.
