At first I was crying after not getting called up, but then I saw the results and I got a bit better.

I got 10th in Disease, 14th in Bio-Process Lab, and 48th :D :D :D in Picture This

I guess you could say I went out with a boom (I'm Arab).

So, if there was anyone else who competed in Anatomy and Physiology in division B, how impressed were you by the test? I personally loved how ironic it is that it was felt necessary to add another body system and physiology to division B after how clumped last year's spread of scores on the test was (and on a very hard test), and then this year the proctors decided to give us a recycled division C test with most (but not all) of the answers blanked out.

That being said, I am alright with having gotten 32nd in it, especially when 32nd was my team's lowest event placement this year (yes, I do see this as a good thing). Congratulations to my team for jumping to 12th this year! Lakeshore is back in the driver's seat!

I have a few screenshots from the end of Division B awards and screenshots for each event/team award from Division C awards. If you're interested in them, they are here: scioly.club/sont.

Did anyone else think Bungee Drop was run horrendously?

The drop mechanism was awful - it was a platform that you flipped in order for the bottle to drop. First of all what comes with this is the danger of the bottle tipping over on its side/flipping over as it falls. If they were gonna go with this stuff, at least make the platform straight...it was tilted -_-

And for another thing one of the drop heights was lower than the minimum 5 meters... I facepalm'd so hard...

When my partner and I went around 11:15 or so, there were like two teams in front of us, then when it was our turn the supervisors told us they were taking a 15 minute lunch break (like...uh, do you have any spare supervisors that could take over while you rest?) . So partner and I went to eat lunch too and when we came back there was at least 15 teams ahead of us. I was wondering how they could possibly be so behind - we went at the start of the time block right after lunch and finished right before the last time block was due to start - and it was because they weren't enforcing the 5 minute time limit. I swear, some of the teams were taking 10-15 minutes. I ended up missing my other building event, and I had to do Forensics in 40 minutes and without a kit. (still got 34th yaaas)

And the Parade of States was a little sad for the teams at the beginning. Marching out to empty seats (and the sad music...) was kind of depressing.
i totally agree the opening ceremony was overall pretty depressing. the music was so sad, so sad (seriously pls at least change this) and because entire teams had to participate in it there was very little cheering for each school when they came out (especially for the first few teams) because the majority of the students who were supposed to populate the audience and provide encouraging screaming/clapping were marching in the parade. i felt like the speaker was a little awkward, too. there was virtually no energy in the audience during the ceremony-we all just sat silently fidgeting in the bleachers waiting for it to end so the swap meet could start.

When I was competing in this event, Chalker came up to the proctor and asked if she was digitally inserting the scores onto the online spreadsheet. The proctor replied that she was unaware of a digital scoresheet and said that she was recording the scores manually. So I assume the tournament directors never bothered to type up the score sheet that the proctor wrote down and just put everyone in 61st place. Although it was only a trial event, I'm really disappointed, and I hope that they'll make an effort to upload the results.
