So how would no awards ceremony work? Would you still get medals?
New Jersey is mailing awards to schools.

For NJ (awards cancelled), medals will be mailed out approximately 1 week after the tournament.

For a tournament like NJ, the sheet will be posted at ~9PM and medals will be mailed.

Some statistics:
Four division B state competitions have been cancelled - a total of 6 bids. This includes 2 NY, 1 Connecticut, 1 Socal, 2 Ohio.
Four division C state competitions have been cancelled - also a total of 6 bids. This includes 2 NY, 1 Vermont, 1 Socal, 2 Ohio.

A total of 16 tournament cancellations - 13 B, 13 C (some tournaments are B/C, which are counted in both B and C counts).

3/4/2020: 1 cancelled
3/6/2020: 1 cancelled
3/8/2020: 3 cancelled
3/9/2020: 5 cancelled
3/10/2020: 6 cancelled

Again, a link to the sheet is here: (https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/ ... sp=sharing), which will be updated accordingly.

Hopefully more tournaments will follow suit and cancel tournaments in a proactive, rather than a reactive approach. Truly is a shame to see some amazing teams not have the opportunity to go to nats, and even states and regionals.

Assuming nats does not get canceled, will SoCal bids go to NorCal or will a certain team be selected based on past performances?
We don't know.

(maybe I should add this to the wiki page)
This sounds like a good idea to me; perhaps we could start a list of frequently asked questions to the wiki page too. People are asking the same questions across several threads and a centralized source of answers could help.
