Test Exchanges/Resources

Hey guys! I was looking through past threads and I found one that discussed the Wiki test exchange. Other than this, the scioly.org test exchange, and captain's tryouts, what are the other public or private test exchanges out there (if any)? Additionally, other than test exchanges and resources on s...

Improving Events as a Captain

Hey everyone! When an event you're doing underperforms at a competition, you have direct conrol over improving it. However, how can a captain improve weak events that he/she isn't necessarily doing? Other than encouraging those doing the event to study more or giving them materials, what else can a ...

Re: 2020 Princeton Invitational

Hey everyone! Looking through this forum, I'm seeing that a lot of teams unstacked (like LM) and others stacked (like WWPN). Why did different teams decide to stack and others decide to unstack-obviously both LM and WWPN are great teams, so I was just wondering the benefits of stacking vs unstacking...

Re: Boomilever B/C

I'm sure this has been asked before but I can't readily find it. What's the best use of a tested boom that held the whole load? My kids are a little unsure of some of the dimensions so we are thinking about just taking it apart and weighing/reweighing sfpding/re-sfpding each piece and using that in...

Re: Boomilever B/C

Hey everyone,
Does anybody know how viable 1/16 square tension members are for Division C this year? I'm using 3/32 square tension members this year, but I'd like to reduce as much as I can. Thanks!

Re: Team selections

Yeah, I always felt that test writing was a problem for our school too. It would be nice if we could find other ways to get tests for all events rather than through our upperclassmen (though having upperclassmen writing the tests definitely makes sense, it would put some stress for my school in part...

Re: PICTURES, SCORES, VIDEOS!!

Bruh I can't even dream of those weights right now. Are you talking about box beam boomilevers, as mentioned here? https://scioly.org/wiki/index.php/Boomilever#Box_Beam_Design I'm sure this design wouldn't weigh much, but I've stuck to traditional boomilevers for this season just because I don't kno...

Re: Tension

No problem! I used the method Aia explained here: https://scioly.org/wiki/index.php/Aia%27s_Boomilever_Guide I've never had a failure at the distal joint using this method. However, depending on your boom, you might want to try using different wood/wood sizes with this method, and see what works for...

That's right-the distal end essentially is where the tension and compression meet.
