^Lol^
Rules are rules man. But always read the fine print. Our school's team is notorious for finding loopholes in the rules. You gotta know where to look...

He said that a wristwatch was a tool, and therefore should have been impounded. Phones are explicitly banned. (Per ISO policy, "Students found with cellphones may be asked to leave the event.") He also tiered teams for wristwatches at the regional he ran.

Seriously? Next, participants may as well impound their eyeglasses and fingernails. :roll: Just to be on the safe side...

Maybe their whole body too... they are a tool that could be used to improve the device :lol:

I don't think that a plain English reading of the word "tools" would include a wristwatch - an accessory worn daily by lots of people. I think his justification was that you'd have to impound a stopwatch, and a wristwatch does more or less the same thing, so he was treating it the same.
I see his point, although I don't think he's right.

Winning roller coaster scored 501 (ie. it must have had about 80cm of gaps). The victor has posted his score in the forums somewhere. Yours scored what - something in the high 300s, with 50cm+ of gaps? If so, then you were probably 4th or 5th.

Div D is slang for post-HS SO activities, most commonly event supervising.

Oh. Why don't you go back to the middle school or high school and help coach and be more involved?

Count the number of times you've complained about an event supervisor.

Also, event supervising certainly counts as more involved, considering how much time it takes to ES at many tournaments.
