I posted the results of last Saturday's event on my blog, and a better explanation of what I am changing for next time and why. In a nutshell, I've decided that displacement modeling is a) only slightly more accurate and therefore b) not worth the extra effort on the part of the judges to calculate. So I am posting here to say that I was wrong (if marginally so) and we will return to standard SD based divisions for the next event.
More importantly, the next event will be held August 20th, 2011. The exact location is still TBD; I'm trying to get a bigger parking lot than last time in the hopes of getting more people to come, but if all else fails it'll be in the same place as before. I will keep you all posted of the details though.
Thanks again for all the support and advice everyone! I'd really like to make this event a biannual thing, and you guys have been instrumental in starting that process. To that end, any Team Rarefaction guys that come out next time will get half price registration. Any Team Rarefaction guys who come out next time AND came out last time will get free registration, as my way of saying thanks to you all. Also, any competitors who came out last time but are not Team Rarefaction guys will also get half
And again, if you have any advice, opinions, comments or questions please email or PM me about it. I'd love to hear your thoughts.
