A very respectable result- you should be proud.WOO HOO! Went to regionals on Saturday! We did much better than anyone else, but there was some mix-up, and we did not even place! We talked to the event coordinator and they looked over the results today and it turned out we did get 1st place! We got 777 for our score for division B (that's relatively low but God willing, it will get better ) Thank God we did good, and thanks to everyone who helped me!
Sorry to hear about the mix-up; glad that following up with the ES got it straightened out. A thing that's been done at out Regional & State competitions for a number of years now (for towers/bridges/booms) is putting things up on a blackboard in the test room - teams put their name/number in the time slot they're going to run, then structure weight, then, when they test, load carried and score get put in. Makes it an even better spectator event.
So, now the challenge is to find ways to bring the weight of your boom down. Good luck!
