They HAVE to stick with the rules; they ran the wrong event, and no one could have known that they were supposed to study for Earthquakes and Volcanoes when the event is clearly Fresh Water.We did bring rules, and tried to appeal, but they ignored us. At least they didn't used the finishes to calculate our total team score.Next time, you should bring a copy of the rules to the competition. If it happens again, maybe you can appeal.Now that's something...some goof at our Regional did the same thing (except he DID put volcanoes on there).
(Although we did get a little lucky and earned a 3rd place finish )
But if they didn't count Dynamic Planet for the overall team score, then that's all they could've done. The event was wrong for everyone and so they'd just have to throw out the event entirely. Sucks for the Dynamic people though, but they can't really do anything else.
