Did you ever hear a response from the email you sent the director?
What I am most confused about is rules 3 and 4.
3. The frame will consist of three sides that make form an equilateral triangle.
4. Each side will measure at least 20 cm.
Does that mean there will need to be three walls made in the shape of a triangle with one sheet of paper acting as the floor?
Also, I assume that "Each side will measure at least 20 cm" means that the triangle frame needs to be 20 cm on each side. If that is the case, rule 8 is impossible to follow. "None of the toy’s extremities will touch the frame, no matter the orientation of the toy". If the toy is 23 cm from head to toy as they say, if will have to touch the walls of the frame. There is no other way to fit.
I am not sure if I may be reading this incorrectly, or maybe someone else has the same questions.
No reply yet ... there's definitely a lot of room for interpretation. The scoring rubric, that was provided with the Wisconsin rules that have been up for a while, is vague also, as to how the points are divided up.
As for the triangle, my interpretation is that the toy should only sit on the 3 legs, without touching the frame - meaning that the frame doesn't extend all the way to the top? It's not much of a stool or chair ... Weird event. Keeping my fingers crossed for clarification. The coaches' meeting Friday night will be after Mystery Design impound anyway.
