-Nothing\'s gonna get deleted. We\'re gonna be like three little Fonzies here. And what\'s Fonzie like? Come on, what\'s Fonzie like?
-Correctamundo. And that\'s what we\'re gonna be. We\'re gonna be cool. Now, I\'m gonna count to three, and when I count three, you let go of your mouse, and back away from the keyboard. But when you do it, you do it cool. Ready? One... two... three.
If I had to guess the changes from the discussion in last year's thread, I'd say lateral movement of the target point and/or a target time are the changes this year. Not to mention that the specs for the vehicle/ramp probably changed too...iwonder wrote:Any guesses now that the rules are out? Lower ramp height, circular motion, or variable ramp height were discussed last year, I believe trying for a certain time in the run was also? I should probably wait... but I'm really impatient

As one of the rules writers, one of our largest struggles is predicting how various event supervisors around the country will interpret our wordings. We spend a huge number of hours debating various options to try and make things as clear as possible, but of course every year there are always issues. One of the best things you all can do for us is let us know about curious or "alternative" interpretations of the rules at the various competitions around the country so we can more clearly understand how exactly everyone is interpreting the rules and so we can improve next year.twototwenty wrote:Our event supervisors from regionals, whom I have no complaint about, told us that the best thing to do as of last year's rule would be something like having a mousetrap which when triggered pulls out a pin which releases the vehicle. They said this kind of thing would fit the requirements of most Event Supervisors.

How is the best way that the average person can do this. I am not aware of any site until after a competition and that goes to the state, not the national rule writers. Except for the 1% that go to the nationals.chalker7 wrote:One of the best things you all can do for us is let us know about curious or "alternative" interpretations of the rules at the various competitions around the country so we can more clearly understand how exactly everyone is interpreting the rules and so we can improve next year.
