Re: Gravity Vehicle C

My ramp has wood sidings that prevent the vehicle from being seen if you are looking at the ramp from the side. Is this going to be a problem when the event supervisor tries to measure the height of my vehicle? I'm trying to think of an easy way to measure the height in my case but I can't think of...

Re: 2011-2012 Events

Hey, Chalker (or anyone else), do you know if there are possibly any large changes(specifically about how the trebuchet should be built/size/stuff like that) for StC?

Re: South California

Hey, penclspinner.... I didn't see you at the competition... but I did see the announcerat the awards ceremony (but I never got to say hi....) Yeah I was there.
