dude, the Karyn-Nazi was beyond dead tired....she was already in the afterlife. seriously, she was so tired, she kept falling asleep in the middle of our 4 minute thing gummies. that was the only time i heard the words, "guys, you are amazing at this event. i don't know how you keep all that stuff in your heads, but somehow you do........*snore*........" "karyn?" (no answer). "Hitler?" "Wh...oh. i'm really proud of you...*yawn*....guys.....you're so......*yawn*...great.....yeah......*snore*........ "
we thought it was the apocalypse! greatest day in the history of SO....besides the invitationals- those are pretty...."special" too.

During Science Word of the Greenhill invite last year, the person running it was like Have you guys done this before and we were like yeah and she was like Oh so you are old pros at this(but she said it doubtfully) and we were like yeah kinda. Afterwards (we got through all the words with time to spare) she was like "You guys really are good". That was so much fun we ended getting first in that event
09 events: Disease detectives, Road scholar, wright stuff, pentathalon, and robo-cross.

It's all fun and games until someone gets their fingers stuck together with super glue, then it's just funny!

That sounds fun. I wish I could compete, but since I have too many events, I had to give up Science word. :cry:

I loved Science Word, but I never got to compete in it because the coach always gave it to more senior members... and then this year, when I'm a 9th grader and a captain and just about as senior a member as it's possible to be in Gelinas SciO, it's not an event anymore! I want it back... the promise of Picture This next year at the high school is nowhere near as interesting.

There's a board of directors who choose which 25 events will be done in a given year, and then there are the coaches who choose which person does which event. Which one did you mean?
