It really is a lot more like the other build-physics events now, huh. There's a written test and one build instead of two. They've really cracked down on the subjectivity issue. Question: is this getting a subforum like thermo?

Edit: They must have -> They've

Currently, there is no subforum this year based on a dearth of past activity.

Also, the rules say that the best value during the five seconds will be counted for the pitch score. Does this mean that if you had, say a Slide whistle, and slid from a flat F to a sharp F during those 5 seconds—because you hit an in tune F at some point, you would get max points?

This is under the lab event section because along with the build portion, there is a test section as well.

that is a clever idea but only deices with a quick decay time can have multiple attacks on the note. ( hitting a mallet or plucking string) and a slide whistle doesnt meet those constraints
