Wonder what it means for state tournaments yet to held... Imagine IL state still happens and NN actually wins a bid. F.
Bruhhh if that happens...idk how NN would feel about that. Just hope they can pull it off a second time. (it will be harder since Stevenson and NT will have more info to work with too)
I’d imagine that the states will probably all call off their tournaments now, in quick succession. For a lot of people, there’s no real point if there’s no nats bid up for grabs. Plus, I imagine that a lot of states who haven’t cancelled yet were probably on the fence about it anyway...
For most teams States has nothing to do with Nats since most teams are nowhere near striking distance of a Nats bid. I wouldn't expect State tournaments to cancel because of Nats canceling, but I do still think there's a good chance of several to many cancellations coming in shortly since it seems by the announcement that NSO was significantly involved in the decision.

From what I've noticed, it has mainly come down to the venue's discretion. Most tournaments have been canceled due to universities enforcing no large meetups, online classes, or even closing the entire campus. In my case, UIUC hasn't done really anything yet (admins are notoriously slow and I'm expecting something by Saturday at least), and the state tournament is still planned for April 18. Either way, once we even move to online classes, I feel ISO will swiftly cancel states. :(

It's been a real series of unfortunate events that has unfolded just in the past 5 days...

Oh well, this is really depressing, but I can't honestly be mad. Scioly has been so much fun over the last 9 years. I've gotten so much from this, and made some gr8 friends. It's been worth every yr:)

My school district just switched to online learning! We get to stay home but the school days still count for the 180 day total in NJ.

Don't know how the logistics will work though...

Since we could probably all use something positive to think about - one happy trend I've noticed is that people seem to be less stressed now about being a senior in SO than they were around the time I joined the forums, since Div D has really blown up in that time period.

Oh no! Edit feature is gone? I was going to edit my previous post and say that I'm just a few minutes in and I'm already feeling really sad and nostalgic about the two years I got to do mission and mousetrap...

EDIT: I'm able to edit this one, immediately after posting, so it must be a time-critical feature. Not really a fan of this, I must say.
