Just wondering... will these be all online or totally canceled? Or rescheduled?

Evrything is rescheduled for omline. It will be like oththlon without the super quiz. Right now it looks like May 7th will be essay and art and May 13th for the rest of it. Subject to change of course.

Kind of a crazy finish for a year with the particular topic focus that it had... And it's got to be eerie, not being able to be with the teams the way they're usually all together, cramming and studying.

You are so right, and it is as if the theme this year was a jinx.

Did we have an outbreak last time we studied infectious diseases?

Maybe AcDec should pick "world peace" for a topic, that would be nice to have for a year.

I wish this had a "like" button. I could go for a year of "world peace".

Nats is unfortunately going to be like Cali States this year. Not that I'm going, but it sucks for all the high performing teams.

Not being able to all get together is a bum deal. That's part of the great fun of nationals, even if you don't compete!

Don't know if you heard, but everything is now cancelled. I guess i understand and was almost expecting it, but my heart goes out to all of the kiddos that have worked so hard.

I had not heard. But this is a real blow, I really do feel for the students that were looking forward to one more round.
