It seems that they are taking out all the good events this year (ornithology, fossils, ECOLOGY,...)
I know some people may not agree with me, and may like staring at water better than studying the broad subject of ecology(jk, jk), so sry if I caused any offense, but I'd like it if maybe they shouldn't take out one of the more popular events and replace it with an event that is less liked. But since I can't change it, I might as well embrace it. So i have questions about it. Note: I know nothing at all about it, but I'm gonna do it because there's nothing else left... So,
1: Do we get a double-sided page of notes or a binder?
2: Do we get to use a calculator?
3: Where are some good sites for learning about this?
Note #2: I epically failed the water part in my state event.... Maybe I shouldn't do this event after all ...
Answer to 1, 2 and 3 - we really won't know until the rules are released in September. In a couple weeks some of your coaches may have access to the draft rules from the Summer Institute, but even those have been known to change by the time the rule books come out.
