Road Scholar B

Postby Jim_R » July 9th, 2010, 7:16 pm

-The path of the Administrator is beset on all sides by the inequities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men.

-Nothing\'s gonna get deleted. We\'re gonna be like three little Fonzies here. And what\'s Fonzie like? Come on, what\'s Fonzie like?
-Cool?
-Correctamundo. And that\'s what we\'re gonna be. We\'re gonna be cool. Now, I\'m gonna count to three, and when I count three, you let go of your mouse, and back away from the keyboard. But when you do it, you do it cool. Ready? One... two... three.

Probably not. A lot of event supervisors didn't use most of the questions they could have (like UTM, profiling, etc). I haven't read the draft rules for Road Scholar though, so I don't know. Good luck to everyone in this event- I'm disappointed I can't do it again.

Well, the National event supervisor this year used basically everything on the rules. But it was Nationals, so the test was guaranteed to be complicated and long. Are you going into 10th grade?

Yes, I am. It's good the Nationals test used everything, but for example, our state test featured only build-a-map, topo, and highway.

I liked how it used to be. I hope it stays the same and they don't add GPS.

What do you exactly mean by GPS? And isn't it more related to Remote Sensing?

Remote sensing, to my knowledge, uses GPS for a large part of the event.
