Re: Nationals Swap Meet 2011!

FM has gotten first every year for something like ten years. However, their reign may soon fall.
I certainly admire your optimism, but just by patterns, if you wanted a year where FM was weak, that was last year. Now their team will be a majority in juniors as opposed to sophomores. Still that doesn't mean you can't beat them, but they won't be a pushover.
And to clarify I think FM has a 11 year record for first (pretty sure on that). The year before that they got 2nd, and they hadn't gone to nationals before that 2nd place.
A quick wiki check shows that it's an 8 year reign on first and they'd gone to nats 4 years before that placing better at nats than the team that won NY states 3/4 times (by contrast the 2nd place team has only beaten F-M at nats once....by one place in the first year that F-M got first)

I'm almost positive its around 11... I shalt have to check this later.

You can make a new swap meet thread when there's swap meet talk to be done.

The title is quite amusing.

(sorry for being part of the force that derailed the thread from the topic).

Um, this was not at all my intention at all. I would never make a thread like this just to brag about my team. I understand the lock, but I'm sort of upset by the title, especially if this is what you all perceived this thread as being.

That's not what it was started as I know, just what it turned into :?

Umm...a few.

1. If you really want to get into sci oly i suggest you start working hard from the get go, you cannot procrastinate (and i don't understand why one would, sci oly is voluntary and so it's safe to assume it's fun for people doing it...).

2. Individual success is great, but in sci oly it isn't enough if you truly want to get to nats - you have to get your whole team involved.
