The Pacific Northwest like many districts are having events not happening because of the Corona Virus. Just yesterday we saw the Australian regionals get postponed because of fears spreading the virus. If the worst case possible is to completely just postpone the entire season until a later date maybe in the summer or even just forget about this year entirely I got to thinking about some other options that do pose a risk of spreading the virus by just limiting it and not ruining all the time and effort teams have put into this season.
What if just take everyone’s first events numbers, double it(the reason for doubling is to mimic what two events might look like in your ranking but it’s not perfect)and the top teams qualify for district champs(if we still have it) or worlds(if we still have it). I know many teams will be screwed over picking the first week to compete and not do very great but this would at least get every team at least one event and maybe a district championship if we have one. To teams that will have done two events, you would only count your first event to be fair to everyone else. This plan of action still gets everyone to compete in this season and a chance to show their teams robot while not completely stopping the spread of the virus it reduces the likelihood with just one event rather than two.
By no means is this a perfect plan but this is the best one I could come up with, if you have a different opinion for our district please share it below so we can think of a solution that we can get First PNW to see and agree with.
