I have talked to various national supervisors for car events, and the general consensus seems to be that there should be 5 meters after the target point on the track. This is probably just an approximation, but from the tournaments that I've been at in which national supervisors ran car events, it always seemed to be around 5 meters extra (including car events from 5 years ago). But for the regional and state levels a rule designating the total track length would be very beneficial.Yes windu34 I was talking about pre-season, regionals, and state. Electric Vehicle was very well run at nationals. killer225whale, I am just suggesting to have a requirement in the rules to have a total track length requirement. That way the track is standardized and always has to be lets say 14 meters at every competition. This would eliminate competitions from having a target of 9 meters with a wall that is at 10 meters that everyone runs into when they try to reverse.
Bottle Rockets: 5th Ecology: 9th Hovercraft: 14th Scrambler: 29th (with a failed run too ;))
Mousetrap Vehicle Hovercraft Ecology Experimental Design (or other inquiry :P) ...Yes, my profile picture is G2 apEX at the PGL Major Qual. :lol:
Air Trajectory -> Hovercraft (2017) -> Storm the Castle (may have been replaced by Hovercraft; 2019) -> Sounds of Music (2019 or 2021)Not sure if this has already been asked, but what are rotations like for building events in Div. B? I'm kind of sad to see Air Trajectory go, as my machine has so much unfulfilled potential! Anyways, I'm sure all the building events to come will be very fun and challenging.
Thermodynamics/Gas Laws. Tentative until rules are released.Does anyone know what the subtopics will be for Chem Lab next year?
2017 Projected Event List (with predicted topics). I don't know the source of these topics, but seeing as there's not much info on the wiki about Ecology topics, I'm thinking they got it from someone involved with the Rules Committee.Does anyone know what the biomes for Ecology will be next year? Thanks!
I know my team will be disappointed. I think hovercraft will be disliked for the same reason maglev was disliked; and I am certain it will be disliked, at least in C division.There was a significant change coming out of the rules committee meeting, which is going to start to leak out I suspect. Hence I think it best I comment on it here: it is likely that Sounds of Music will NOT be back as an event next year. Hovercraft will likely take it's place (and be both a B and C division event).
Some people are going to be very happy about this, others are going to be disappointed. The reasoning is that the committee wants to SIGNIFICANTLY revamp the rules for Sounds of Music, and we felt it best to run it as a trial first with the revamped rules. We'll be working more on those this summer.
Assuming this does happen, I've gotten commitments from many people to run Sounds as a trial event next year at their tournaments. I'm 99% sure we'll run it at the National Tournament as a trial too.
