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)
