thanks


Yes. It's been a long day, so I'm not going to post a ton, but here are some highlights of the 1st place scores:

Towers C: 44.46
Helicopters C: 153.18
Mission Possible C: 3006
Mousetrap: -3.96

Battery Buggy B: 117.75
Bottle Rocket B: 34.6
Towers B: 43.89
Helicopters B: 155.19

That's over 177 grams of sign mass for mission possible!!! Nice!

Does anyone know what the sumo bots trial event was like, if there was one?

Not being there, I would assume they had a custom balloon (That they presumably constructed). The rules say nothing about the source of the balloon and I would guess a number of the top teams at nationals will have balloons that maximize the overall space available.

There was a sumo bots trial. 16 teams competed. I don't know many details other than the event supervisor said it went well.

Solon won. I didn't see it but was told they had a very large balloon and very few actual tasks. Their time was also right on.

Wind Power was another event we had an issue with. The grad students running it didn't realize the rules had changed this year and as a result there were a LOT of things wrong with Part 1 of the event (the testing the blades portion). Numerous coaches filed arbitrations (there were 4-5 separate issues) and after extensive discussions we decided to only score Part 2 (the written portion).

Centerville ended up 1st. If anyone ends up posting mV results I wouldn't take much stock in them since the setup was so messed up they don't necessarily correlate to how the event is supposed to run.

Towers is a walk-in event for both divisions (and run by the same people). On the B schedule we had the event ending at 1:50PM, but on the C schedule we accidentally showed it going until 2:50PM (I take partially responsibility for this since I was one of a handful of people who reviewed the event schedule before it was posted). The event supervisor broke down the equipment at 2PM, dropped the scores off and left. Several teams showed up expecting to compete in the 2-2:50PM time slot and found an empty room. Since we weren't able to allow them to compete, it was only fair to not have the event count towards the team scores.

I just checked (Note we did NOT know this at the tournament yesterday and it did NOT factor into our decision), but if we had kept it as a regular event, the top 6 teams would still be in the the same order, and thus everyone who got a team trophy would have still gotten the same trophy. At least one of the top 10 teams was unable to compete, but even if they had scored 1st in the event they still wouldn't have bumped up enough in the standings to get a trophy.

I've gotta ask, how did Ohio, the best state in the country, manage to screw up out 2 events and start late for the awards ceremony... With the resources available at OSU, surely we could've found more people to grade tests to start the awards ceremony at the scheduled time. Northmont did it, Wright State did as well if I remember right. Heck, West Liberty started early! It's really kinda sad.

And at the state level, especially in Ohio, you'd think we could make sure the event supervisors read the rules and run the competition appropriately. How hard is it to actually run towers? What would have happened if Mentor had been close enough to Solon that had Wind Power and Towers been run correctly and counted(the entire event, in the case of Wind), that they would have went to nationals. I know for sure that they would've been more than a little uspet.

Ohio's the best. We should expect our state tournament, if nothing else, to match our teams' success.

(I wasn't upset with EVERYTHING, by the way. The Anatomy, Disease, Microbe, and TPS tests were all very well written, and the proctors there were helpful. I just think everybody's entire team should've had the ability to experience that)
2011 Events: Anatomy & Physiology, Disease Detectives, Ecology, Microbe Mission, Mission Possible, Optics, Birds, Protein Modeling, Technical Problem Solving
