we just have it where people who want to do an event gets it...unless there are more than two people vying...and in that case, the better of the people get it :)

then theres events where no one wants to do, and then someone gets forced into it *ahmcomputethisahm*
i got forced...because my dad was a computer engineer....though my hate for technology and its hate for me is ironic...

oh
just to let you guys know
if you go to the ISO website, they changed the layout slightly..but don't let that fool you..they still dont update the website as much >.<
also, how do you find out what the trial events are? it just says trial events, but it takes you to the soinc page with ALL the trial events

To find trial events you might have to wait until your state schedule comes out.

sooo, funny story about state. i was wearing my bffls northface jacket, because, if you were there, you would know it was freezing, so at awards, one of my friends noticed that someone had put a fake mustache on the back of the jacket! :P so since we ended up not placing(sooo close @ eitgth place is that how you spell 8th?), we crowned it our state trophy. and made a national anthem for it. (nothing beats the mustache!) so yeah. thats pretty much it. :)

What were some of your studying techniques? In other words, can you help the next generation of competitors? Thanks!

So today kjhs and I had a meeting with our new coaches. We ended up talking for ~45 minutes. Then we ransacked the science department (well, the "SO desk" - apparently after all the paper-shuffling from construction, all things SO-related ended up heaped on this one desk in the new office) and attempted to sort piles of tests, score sheets, unused certificates (heh) and ended up with a two-foot tall stack instead of the original meter or so (we chucked an entire blue recycle bin's worth of paper), then spent another half our organizing the tests by subject into file folders, then into a box that was eventually lugged into my house. Some of the papers were alllll the way back from 2000. Did you know COD used to give back regionals tests? Don't we wish they still did...

I can't believe they might nix the COD regional this year! And they got rid of Benedictine, too. I don't know what we're going to do if we can't go to COD (there are other regionals reasonably close, but on really inconvenient dates for us).

Also, has anyone here been to the Hinsdale invite in December? We're going to try to go to that one this year instead of Crystal Lake.

well, they probably aren't going to completely nix the COD regional, but the date isn't set because of the construction going on. As far as invites, they have even gotten rid of Niles west, which is surprising considering its prior successes.

Also, to prospective forestry competitors, I unearthed old forestry materials, and found that IL had actually released a shortened list for our states, with maybe 50 or 60 trees as opposed to the nearly 200 on the national list. so... there is hope :)

oh, and...our team was considering doing an invite this year... :? BUT BUT BUT...GOOD NEWS! our former coach took one look at my pathetic efforts to try to get a coach and she decided to take pity...but she said she would do it if we could get 15 parent volunteers...so there is hope still :D

(i just go the news today and i wasnt the one to ask our ex-coach anyways :( some spotlight stealer, a newbie to the team compared to my full 2 years in middle school, asked....grrr, i hate that person

Anyway, post the Forestry stuff on the forum, please. Did you find any good info on other events? If so, post them on the forum, too.
