If your boomi goes over 45cm but has the center of loading block within the range, you should not get tiered.
Upon further investigation and review by me, my partner, and other people that compete in Boomilever we have determined that UChicago has misinterpreted Section 3 Subsection C of the Boomilever rules and prematurely declared my Boomilever tiered! Furthermore, the UChicago ES failed to notify me that my Boomilever was within a "construction violation", thus I was unable to arbitrate and correct their improper tier... There WILL be an arbitration as multiple injustices were made to the competitors (me and my partner) and no opportunity was given for clarification or arbitration. This is not cool...
Rule 4.II.j: "Teams who wish to file an appeal must leave their Boomilever with the event supervisor."
I'm sorry, but you really can't change much at this point.
