Is anybody else as confused as I am on this event o_o. I mean does anybody have any ideas on how you can adjust the elasticity of the band (or something of the sort) after impound? Or am I the only one who is this confused...
I completely agree.
Rule 2b says something about the attachment point required to be at the top end of the elastic cord.
Rule 3a says you get time to prepare your device
Rule 3c says you cannot modify the cord after impound.
If you must attach to the top end and cannot modify the cord, exactly what is there to prepare?
The way I read the rules, if a team tried to use only part of their cord (an obvious solution) they would be guilty of either modifying the cord (by rolling it up) or not attaching to the top end.
Add the ambiguity of a release mechinism supplied by the event supervisor which must be used (3B) and the event appears impossible.
Hopefully I'm missing something.
