So new rule changes?
Right now it looks like there will likely be a new segment added which will likely be lifting an object as high as possible

Or at very least some sort of variable scoring, which is good; I really dislike events with a maximum score.
I wonder, if not lifting an object as high as possible, what the variable will be...any hints, chalkers/jander/other informed individual?

I know you're not going to say anything but I'll ask anyway. Any changes to dimensions, layout, build specs etc.?

Soinc.org has officially posted the 2013 rules for sale today. So, hopefully, they will mail it out today for those that prepaid.
Somehow, I do not like the idea of a height bonus.
IE: answers soon.

Aww... I was hoping for no height bonus... at least we've already got the height down ;)

Thanks for mentioning that the rules were out retired1, ordered my copy just now.

I like the height bonus, course all I have to do is measure it....

Comment, its not a large bonus, until you can get a near perfect score with everything else, it may not be worth spending a LOT of time on.

Note, please spend a little time on it, I HATE ties.

So the height bonus is in play...it will be interesting to see how it's worded.
Anyone have any basic ideas about how they're going to go about this?

Well my arm is already about 4ft tall... So as long as it fits the rules, I'm just going to lift something with the arm and hold it there.
