Is there a rule against a Boomilever being tiered due to it being over
45cm?????? I received a tier for this yet as I review the construction parameters there is no such rule! Only Section 3 Subsection C states "The Boomilever must support the Loading Assembly (5.b.) at the loading point which must be between 40 cm and 45 cm from the testing wall (4.Part II.e.ii.)."
but my Boomilever was
in compliance with this rule!
Am I missing something!! Please help!
No such rule, what in the world happened?

Upon further investigation and review by me, my partner, and other people that compete in Boomilever we have determined that UChicago has misinterpreted Section 3 Subsection C of the Boomilever rules and prematurely
declared my Boomilever tiered! Furthermore, the UChicago ES failed to notify me that my Boomilever was within a "construction violation", thus I was unable to arbitrate and correct their improper tier... There WILL
be an arbitration as multiple injustices were made to the competitors (me and my partner) and no opportunity was given for clarification or arbitration.
This is not cool...
