Good morning all,
I hope that you had a great day yesterday, a huge thank you to Rooney & the faculty, staff & students at Saint Andrews for another great tournament!
If you are the one who can log in to Avogadro, you can click on your team name and see a graph of how the team did versus everyone else and also the raw score in the event. Many of you have asked for the total number of points per test (because it is rarely 100) and I am still working with the developer on that.
If you see a problem in the scores, please email me by Tuesday morning at the latest so that I can look in to it. Scores become final at 5pm on Wednesday.
Here are the scores divided by team group – this is what medals & trophies come from. The first place team is moving on to States on April 26 & 27!
I am running a bit behind this year. Florence attached St. Andrews in the fall and left behind a lot of damage from flooding. The result is a bit of creativity in the scheduling this year.
We will be running Ping Pong Parachute in the Detamble library. The space measures 22’ X 47’ with a ceiling height of 33’ Check out the photos to get a better feel for the space.
Elastic Launch Glider will be run in Avinger auditorium. For those of you returning this is the same space we having been using for the awards ceremonies. The flat floor in the center measures 36’ X 43’. Ceiling height is 16 feet. See attached photos to get a feel for the space.
Battery Powered Buggy will be run on a terrazzo floor. Exact location is yet to be determine.
The gym was not available this year because of a home volleyball match schedule for 12 noon.
If you have additional questions just let me know.
