Alternate is a word, at least in my school, for kids allowed to come to the tournament but not compete.

Yeah, 7lakes has got a buttload of people this year. (And an awsome buttload of people, i might add :D )

*Sigh* You all make katy sound soooo behind now. We've just finished up fundraising, my coach doesn't have the rules and everyone's confused about events except people who've done this before... :oops:

--ok, Model this was a trial event from last year at NATS and i placed 3rd in it. :) it is SOOO fun
--and they would have 34 kids because they have TWO teams, so 15 and 2Alternates and another 15 and 2 Alternates So like an A team and B team, thats the way BDJH (and i think 7L) works as well. -- Oh yeah our alternates work just as hard as the competitors, :]
--and the Green Hill schedule is out too...http://www.greenhill.org/podium/default.aspx?t=117648 but i would assume it is tentative.
You wouldn't have 19 alternates!!! :) ;)
oh yeah, 7 Lakes has an AWESOME team this year!!!! AMAZING!!

We get about that many for states, and depending on whether we fly or bus to Nationals we may have the same number there as well. I was an alternate in 7th grade, but got to go to DC as one of a lot of alternates.

no...we have...34 people including alternates
anyone doing history of science?
History of Science is a fun event. I would suggest that you get Isaac Asimov's Biographical Encyclopedia of Scientists though, it really helps with the event and is interesting to read.

Ok, lets not get too high hopes about Seven Lakes. We haven't even signed up for Cy-falls yet since we don't have enough money....

We don't have resources, even if you do say we have the people. That's the biggest difference from our team last year at Beckendorff and the team this year at Seven Lakes- we have very little resources. That being said, I don't think we will do terrible because the program is a lot more organized from what it was last year. We still don't have teams or events yet really and no rules manuals. We just have the 30 competitors and the 4 alternates. Thankfully, we have about 2 more months to get everything figured out and hopefully things will fall into place.

thanks, I'll look into it.
7 lakes has 2 teams, each with 2 alternates, but we're really not decided about the teams or events. And we don't have money...for anything. And yes there's a lotta people.
