Question on the Order of Contests


#1

I was wondering, why are MA states after NER, and why is Worlds before Nationals?? Shouldn’t it be the other way around?? or not?


#2

I don’t know about MA states. But I’m guessing the winners of nationals get better seeds in worlds? Please correct me if I’m wrong.


#3

It is all in the scheduling. Sometimes, the regional contests are held before state contests.

Uh, Worlds takes place BEFORE Nationals.


#4

my mistake, i edited my post. “Why is worlds before Nationals,” I meant to say??

I think it will take a bit to get things organized globally. Plus, it’s hard to break old habits. I don’t see US Nationals changing from the first weekend in October
