Let me guess ... were marshmallows involved? Spaghetti marshmallow towers are super popular

I know cantilevers are only for State and Nationals but want to get some experience with them as well - does anybody have guidance on how an event with cantilevers will be run. Will they typically provide a base as a fulcrum? Can the cantilever be secured to the fulcrum? Any sample events available?

Thanks.

No. no marshmallows. It was a bridge.

Are structures measured in inches or centimeters, or does the supervisor get to decide?

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe they are supposed to be measured in centimeters ( 5b on the rules manual for mystery).

I think someone has already asked this, but I’ll ask anyway. For a cantilever, are we provided with a base or not? With a base would be like building it off of a table or something. No base would be having to make the cantilever freestanding.

Yes I asked and am still awaiting an answer. Another option would be to anchor it to a wall. Is there any guidance?

Thanks.

My guess is that for cantilevers, event supervisors would need to provide a testing station like what they had for Boomilever years ago (before my time). I believe they had three hooks screwed into a vertical board to "hang" the cantilever from. This is hard because cantilevers are not available for event supervisors to choose until State, so they don't get the benefit of seeing how other event supervisors tested it during the season and all the problems that would have potentially arisen. It's possible that some State event supervisors will just opt not to test cantilevers and go for bridges or towers instead. You just don't really know what to expect. It's a "Mystery" I guess. :P
