I don't think that tower building is an event this year. I believe that both B and C division are doing elevated bridge this year. Just like previous bridge building events but with a requirement that no member that spans the oppening be closer than 5cm to the level of the loading platform

my team got 7th :lol: we built one tower made out of wooden dowels.. it was never tested and the rules were never read so it was 2nd tiered. It ended up holding all the weight at the competition but it weighed a lot

last year the event supervisor was such an idiot that that loading area wasnt level at all and he said that it didnt affect it.....
well, it broke on the side the area was leaning to and he still didnt believe me...
