I wish :) considering they're the safe pick for the Prediction Contest, it'll be interesting to see how they're doing. Anyone from IL happen to know?

This was what my question was related to, are you saying 'all tension members' because the size of the wood you used, or that you have run simulation and all the pieces are under tension? Thanks

I think "S4BB" meant that they were 'tension members' because (1) they were to weak to be compression members and (2) they were attached to the main columns using lap joints and not but joints which would be more appropriate for compression members.
