No. In fact, I have no idea how I went into this thread in the first place. :?

I'm losing faith in National Event Coordinators.
The National competition is run by humans, just like all the other ones, and so there are almost as many failures of organization, event writers not turning in their events on time, and just badly written events as you'd expect at, say, a State tournament (in fact, in some ways I think the New York State tournament is run better than Nationals, but of course it's much easier to run, being much less elaborate and with fewer teams present).
The New York tournament had 54 teams last year. Nationals has 60, so the size is not that much different.

Okay, but Nationals is still a considerably bigger organizational challenge.

Ah. I forgot they run them both at once. In NY they run the two divisions a month apart, which simplifies things considerably.

Do we have to memorize the rubric? My team thought so last year so I did, but they had the rubric in the competition! Sigh...
