Never been to nats, nor am I div C, but I do have experience with the proctor (Gary Vorwald) and his stations are typically 2 minutes long. They might be longer for nationals though, but expect somewhere in that range.
Two years ago I knew stuff about rocks, minerals, experiments, and ecosystems, yay!
Last year I knew stuff about amphibians, reptiles, freshwater, and more experiments, yay again!
Now I know stuff about oceanography, saltwater, birds, and fossils, yay for the third time!

He's written Div C R&M/Fossils for at least the last three years. Someone else does Div B.

For the sedimentary rocks in Fossils, can we just use our notes from this event?

Probably, but the majority of the event is going to be fossils, so rocks will probably just be a general understanding, not in-depth like R&M.

Probably just going to be ID if mentioned at all.
