Getting above 1200 is a real accomplishment. It'll be really interesting to see what kind of numbers come in from OH today.
Wish I could make it to Nats to see and meet, but that isn't going to happen. I am, however, looking forward to working with Preston MS, from here in Fort Collins to see how far... the tube can be taken.
Balsa, when you ask for a tube boom to be "explained", I'm not sure what you mean.....
There's now a picture that explains - shows what one looks like; there is a lot of discussion explaining underlying concept, theoretical advantages, ways of building, design variations that are appearing; its pretty much all here. Something specific you were wondering about?

I would recommend reading ALL of this thread and the Boomilever B/C thread.
We got almost all of our design from these threads by reading all of it, then thinking/imagining...
We decided to simply overlap the seam in the tube, instead of trying cutting and then gluing the edges. We scrapped 4 or 5 tubes trying it the way they describe in the PDF.

They only went to 6 places in awards. I would guess that it took 1200+ to pick up a ribbon or medal. Guessing that First Place (Solon) was around 1500.
