Thanks Len Joeris - a season later

Postby Raleway » June 11th, 2019, 6:45 am

I just wanted to say another thank you to Len Joeris. For those that knew him from years past, he was an amazing mentor and huge help through the forums, giving up his time and sharing his expertise on a daily basis. Although he wasn't here to tell newcomers to read previous years' posts or to run through ten paragraphs chock full of engineering and physics nuggets, his work really impacted me through my time with Science Olympiad (I will be graduating Division C this year). May he be resting peacefully.

PS: Hadn't posted in a while after not qualifying for nationals and realized I never said my thanks this year to Len so here it is :) He still made it onto every single Boomilever this year!
Sleep is for the week; one only needs it once a week :!: :geek: :roll: :?: :idea:

God bless Len Joeris | Balsaman

Our teams have read Len Joeris'/Balsa Man's posts for years and I was wondering, how long had he posted to scioly.org, and in seeing all the research done by students on this great site, has anyone ever thought to make some type of compilation of his top posts for all to see in one location? (Given the depth and breath of his contributions, maybe it would just be way too much!)

This is a great idea! I think it could be very useful.

Definitely! If all his input and advice were put into an online, or hard copy, book, I would buy one (or two, for the team!!)

I can’t believe I forgot about this forum, I’ve been meaning to post but just haven’t taken the chance to do so. I can’t thank Len enough, and even though he wasn’t here to help this year, his spirit lived on and seemed to always remind me about the small things as I was building. “Not too much glue there, careful!” As the year progressed I continued to study his posts from last year, and gradually the absorption of information began to show in my boomilevers. I doubled my boom scores within 2 weeks, iirc, and I couldn’t have done it without all he has taught me. Thank you Balsa Man.
