On the subject of having events dropped/being moved to trial, the SoCal state tournament this year had Can't Judge a Powder made a trial event, and Metric Mastery didn't count, if I remember correctly.
TSA's pretty cool... i guess

2015 events:
Essays on Technology, Tech Bowl, Water Infrastructure, Website Design

We've posted an official statement on the State website about Helicopters: http://www.ced.osu.edu/scioly/
In order to reflect the principles and spirit of the Science Olympiad program, the Helicopters event was made a trial event at the Ohio Science Olympiad State Tournament. After consultation with the arbitrators and the event supervisors, it was decided that the integrity of the helicopter event was compromised. As a State office it is our responsibility to ensure the overall integrity and fairness of the program. Our decisions are NEVER based on any one school or individual team. The decision to make Helicopters a Trial event was based on several inconsistencies, coupled with other issues related to the event space. It is the State office position that the spirit of the competition was impacted. Students ranking in the top 6 places were still awarded medals but their scores were not counted toward the final team results. Additionally, it should be noted that had the scores been counted the final top 6 team results would have remained the same (although this did not factor into the decision).

Sincerely,
Angela D. Davis, State Director

Try again. Dropbox had a security issue earlier this week and broke all the shared links. It's fixed now.

I was just wondering, since helicopters was in a ridiculous place, were there any successful runs? What was the best time?
Innovation =/= success
