If one goes, I'd guess more would be likely to join.

Yes! So far, we've received registration from four teams who attended nationals last year, two of which placed in the top 10!

Hmm... Do you know which two teams? I would guess Springhouse and maybe Longfellow?

We know very little about Massachusetts teams and so some of the team names are unfamiliar to us, so how competitive is MA overall? We are going to Bayard Rustin next weekend and we know PA is very competitive 8-)

The top MA team might be competitive with you, but I'm probably overestimating them.

We just received notification that Harvard will not be running any "wet labs" and so the hands-on lab in Potions and Poisons is out (they will be providing any information necessary. Does anyone know what that will mean for Thermodynamics?

January 10th update (from the Harvard organizers)

Hello all! Regarding our announcement about events with wet labs, here is the list of events with hands-on activities/lab components that we are modifying:

Circuit Lab
Crime Busters
Density Lab
Potions and Poisons

For these events, instead of requiring competitors to manipulate instruments or work with reactive chemicals, we will instead be supplying data that competitors will then use to answer additional questions.
Because we are modifying these events, students will not be penalized if they do not bring their safety gear to these four events. All other events, however, will follow the standards as established by the 2019 Division B Rules Manual. (We will still be running thermodynamics as according to the national guidelines).

Thank you all for your understanding. Please let us know if you have any further event clarification questions!

Best,
The HUSO Division B Tournament Directors

I cannot believe there are only 5 days left. Any predictions before that fateful day? Personally, I think it'll be a close race between Bay Academy and Springhouse for 1st and 2nd based on how close they were at Garnet to overtaking Springhouse.

After Springhouse's performance at Solon, I'd think that Springhouse will still win out over Bay Academy (but i might just be biased cause same school district)
