Uh, yeah, that's a big 10-4 on the Tier 2 for Poudre. I was really sorry to hear about it. They are our big cross-town rival, but once State's done, we're always glad to help them for nats. We made our jigs/tools available, and broken regional bridge to see construction detail. Went through wood specs for each of the pieces, passed on some wood left over. We also passed on the height gauge, span gauge, and clearance block I'd made for Regional & State Bridge judges to use - which I know were accurate. From e-mail with their coach, and a very brief phone discussion with their builder:Thanks BalsaMan! I saw Poudre got something back in the 50s... Are you privvy to what happened? I would guess that's a Tier 2...
Yes on the pics. I'm going to ask my (more digitally proficient than I) son to do that this weekend. The gallery is becoming both a great resource, and a neat history - do want to have our part in it.Gotcha. Shame about Poudre - very unfortunate. We were extra, extra conservative on staying within specs; at least a couple millimeters at all sides. Are you still thinking you'll put up pictures of your design? It's cool that the image gallery is now populating itself with more photos with everyone being done.
woahhh. so that means that the #1 Div C bridge:Towers next year for sure, probably new scoring equation, still efficiency, more emphasis on weight held.
New score equals weight held squared over mass of bridge. Still max 15 kilo load. Goal is to motivate students to get closer to 15 kilo capacity.
