Does anyone else (from somewhere besides MI) have a state competition tomorrow?

We (PA) had ours today. The challenge was ramp. My partner and I got out of medal range (I'll post my actual placing when I find out) with a ramp 1560 cm long and all 10 balls in the container.

So, how did you like how it was run at state? I hated how we were so limited.

My group got 3rd place with a ramp 2890mm. long, and all 8 golf balls reaching the container. i really wish that they would have made us build catapult. we had that one absolutely great. the trigger part was the only part that had me confused on how to build it, but 2 weeks before states i finally figured it out. i finally completed a bouncer 3 days before the competition. that one wasnt as good, but it was still decent. with catapult i think that we could easily have won.

How did you build your ramp?
