At this point I have no idea; all I know it was greater than 450 CM :S :P
Fishman100, not to be stalker-like, but what state are you from? How long were the other ramps that you saw?
STALKER! BACK OFF NAO!!!

Lol jk, I'm from VA.

There were only 2 other teams in my session; 1 got 2nd tier and the other team got 6th. IDK what the 5th-place team's score was, sorry :(

I have no idea what the 2nd place team's score was, though :\

He used the allowed material: skill.

i made a stack of cups, cut it in half, ripped the little bottoms out of it, taped the halves together, ran duct tape through the length of it. pur supports on it. and it turned out great.

That sounds like a good idea :)

Sorry, I'm not telling how exactly we made our ramp, but it involved pieces of paper and 2 towers at the end.

How long were you able to make it? What place did you get?

Well, if the 2 towers are tall enough, then you can make it as long as you want, providing you have enough materials.

We could have gone longer, but I didn't want to risk it toppling over :P I still don't know if it would've had we made it longer, but I doubt it :)

We haven't practiced that one as much, but we should be able to get at least ten feet with our final design...
How do you make your ramp 20 feet long?

It's easy! My partner and I could do longer than that.
