Nice! Are you (Infinity Flat) doing S.O. this next year :?:
Of course. :P I'll be busy over the summer, too.
And you?
I hope so!! I actually have already started studying climate :D What events are you going to try out for?
All of them.

Oh... For the sake of Camas High I would strongly suggest not to upset the balance of events per person :lol: I want to do Meteorology, Compute This and Forestry.

I just want to quickly say congrats to both Camas and Excel. I watched the whole awards ceremony, and I was so psyched when they called 2nd for Camas on Experimental Design. I'm so glad your team was able to grab several medals. At any rate, 14th overall on a first showing is pretty darn good.

I'm sorry that your events didn't go perfectly, Excel. I honestly expected to hear your team called for towers- you always have amazing scores in the balsa events. However, your team still snagged quite a few medals. : )

Our tower unexpectedly went out quick, for a reason that we haven't figured out yet. If it had done as well as it did at state it would've got a medal. Our Junkyard Challenge team did amazing though! :D

Dude, nationals just ended! Give your state peeps a few months to recuperate, man. Heck, the events aren't even finalized!

That will probably be decided at the annual meeting on June 18.

Usually the event days are close to same each year in Washington, and we get our schedule out early.. I guess a little early though to ask :roll:
EDIT: Ok, thanks for the date Infinity! Since the schedule comes out that soon that's why I asked if there was a very early tentative schedule yet!

The problem with studying now is that we don't know what the event conflicts will be at next year's state and national tournaments. I'm really hoping that Rocks and Minerals doesn't conflict with Astronomy or Disease Detectives. :?

I'm pretty sure events within the same committee don't have conflicts. Astronomy and Rocks are both "Earth Science," so I don't think they will be scheduled at the same time. As far as ones in separate committees like Disease Detectives and Optics, hope for the best. :P

Hm, I hope you're right! I wonder whether they're going to schedule the National Tournament alphabetically, like they did this year. Anyway, Minnesota doesn't typically have the same conflicts as Nationals, so we'll see. :)
