What's this CHS request thing?
We requested that, in order to help whatever team from washington going to nationals, that the schedules be synchronized.
There were 2 main problems with this, from what I can tell:
1. The nationals schedule hasn't been released yet, and the state directors have to plan pretty far in advance so as to make sure all rooms are available.
2. For state/regional competitions, often multiple events are relegated to a single room, often classrooms with specific resources (e.g. chemistry rooms, computer labs.) The directors try and make sure that no two events, across both divisions, both requiring the same type of room (e.g. Compute This and Protein Modeling) are scheduled for the same time, so as to help prevent conflicts.
