In the three years that I have done Road Scholar, it has never once been a map of NY.

Hmm, maybe it's just been the tests I've taken then. I guess it would make more sense to use a map that the competitors wouldn't be previously familiar with, but I usually had a Pennsylvania map when I did it.

I thought that too, but it turns out we were wrong :P

Thank you field trips for making us learn about important places and roads! :D

So I've been studying all of VA for the past week or so :lol:

It's not just you EAST, every test I took was Kansas-themed. Each team should know their states' map backwards and forwards, even if it doesn't show up at competition, just in case they get lost on the way to their tournaments.

Road Scholar is annoyingly competitive.
I only got two questions wrong (a little off with my latitude and longitude) and placed 4th.
