As I said a few posts ago, the 2008 specs (as in for 2007-2008 season) were 15cm, not 20. (with a length of 40cm)chalker wrote:JimY wrote:The winning efficiency at nats in 2008 was closer to 2500. It was about a 6 gram boom that went to full load. A Kansas school won the event in both 2007 and 2008. In 2007, it was by a wide margin. It was much closer in 2008. At least this is what I recall. So, quite a bit better than Ohio at the time.
So, do your schools typically keep their best devices to start from when an event comes around again or have some other means of not recreating the wheel when an event comes back, or do you start from scratch?
Thanks for the info. Looking at the posted final 2008 results (http://soinc.org/sites/default/files/up ... ll_C08.pdf), Kansas team 26 did indeed get 1st, while Ohio team 7 got 35th in the event (although 3rd overall in the tournament).
Everyone should please keep in mind there is at least 1 significant change from the rules in 2007-2008 and now that will likely impact the abilities of the boomilevers. In 2007-2008 the device could be up to 20cm below the attachment holes. That's still true in B division, but in C the limit is now 15cm.
So. for C-div, it's the same.
Quite certain on this- have a copy of the rules in my hands.
