Hey if anyone from grover could pm me a list of email addresses of people who would be interested in joining the south scioly team next year that would be great. We might have a summer meeting for people interested so we would like to include you guys.

Thanks

It's tentatively meant to be about the Excretory, Digestive, and Respiratory systems in Div C.
2014 New York City Div C Regionals
2012 New York Div B States
2012 Lower Hudson Div B Regionals
2011 Lower Hudson Div B Regionals

Just wondering, is New Jersey going to send two teams next year?

That is impossible to know conclusively. Here's how the system works for nationals: to start out with, every state that runs a state tournament for Science Olympiad gets 1 spot at nationals. Because there are 60 spots at nationals for each division, there are quite a few extra spots. So a second slot is systematically given to the states with the highest participation level in Science Olympiad. Every year a few states opt not to send a team to nationals so the next few states in line receive a spot. So basically, you can't know if New Jersey will get a second spot next year because there are two unknowns: where New Jersey will rank in the line for getting a second spot and how many states will decline their invitation to nationals.

What we can decipher, based on the team numbers from nationals last year is that there were three more states ahead of New Jersey in the line for a second spot in both B div and C Div. So the only way NJ will get a second spot for either division is if they move up around four spots in the order for receiving a second team, four more states drop out of nationals than the number that dropped out last year, or some combination of the two.
When it comes to the future, there are three kinds of people: those who let it happen, those who make it happen, and those who wonder what happened.

This is very encouraging :D
For us at (or going to) HSS and HSN, the trouble is not getting to nationals, but making the A-team. D:
