At the Division B competition at SUNY-Ulster, what were the weights of the projectile and counterweight used in Storm the Castle? Just curious and what distances did you guys get with your trebuchets given those numbers?


Counterweight: 2.1kg

Projectile: 40g

We shot for 14 meters, and were only a few inches off, but we got 7th place, which I'm content with.

Anything other than 1st Liv is obviously wrong, you should send an email to Harold for no apparent reason. :roll:

SUNY-Ulster was a decent place to hold the NY Division B competion. I liked the open spaces and I had never known how much open space there was in NY. I've heard that most of NY is rural but I've only seen the NYC area before the SO state competion. Rarely did I have a cell signal there though.
If you're willing to post it here, what hotels did you guys in Division B stay at?
The only thing I disliked about Ulster was that the Sumbot finals were held on a stage off to the side in the gym. There were about 30 people crowding around the area trying to get a look, but I'm not even sure some people knew it was going on.

I think it must have been more than 30. The bleachers were crowded sinced there was an excellent view from there too but I didn't bother to struggle and find a seat. I just played ultimate frisby outside in the field around where Bottle Rocket was being held.
Goodbye Science Olympiad, until next year.

So it appears that the trials will be announced by the end of June. Any ideas on what they might be? Study events? Builds? A combo? I just hope there's no Sumobots :P

What makes you say that? They are usually not up until August, at the earliest.

According to the website (http://newyorkscioly.org/SOPages/Events.html) they will post them at the end of June this year. Odd, being so early, but I'm pretty excited.

I'm guessing most probably MagLev, and Bottle's always been popular too. Hopefully those two?

Would they really repeat them? I personally would like some new stuff.
