We were State Champions for Can't Judge A Powder and nine points ahead of second place and we got 59th for Nationals. Nobody is sure how we did it, but I think we set a record.
Darn, you even beat me.
For CJAP for me, states was the standard fare; H2O, HCl, and NaOH. Nationals, on the other hand, had those three plus Phenolphthalein, Bromothymyl Blue, and one other (Benedict's? I dont remember). We managed the first three and were halfway through phenolphthalein when time was called. Every question was on the last three that we didn't get to test.
At nationals time is always an issue, my partners and I didn't finish the Forensics nor the Chem Lab tests and came down to the wire on the Env. Chem test and didn't finish the tie breaker. Heck, in Traj I barely had enough time to get all 4 shots off even without aiming.

You guys got 60th? When was this? I don't remember these things being on the test this year. The exact same thing happened to us. We missed almost every question except for a few.

By that, I meant you beat me by having a bigger gap from States to Nats (1st to 59th for you, 3rd to 51st for me). I did it back when I was in 8th grade, so 5 or 6 years ago. The year after, the event was much much easier; too easy for Nats, actually. It was just the basic three reagents. We got 21st that time. Then the event was dropped and didn't come back until this year.

Ah. Was it the same event supervisor when you did it for the second year? I know the event supervisor this year has supervised this event for Nationals for years, and she gives a lot of extra stuff!!

Hmm I don't believe so, I remember different people. Could've been though, but I doubt it because the events were so different.
