Event Location: Progeny Systems, 9500 Innovation Drive, Manassas
Event date: Saturday, February 10th, 2018
Event times: 9:00 AM to 1:00 PM
We are hosting a “Balsa Crush-a-thon” for balsa teams who want to practice with official equipment and test out their structure prior to the tournament. This is a FREE event.
- Teams can actually crush their structures if you don’t have a crusher apparatus and weights
- Become familiar with the equipment BEFORE the tournament
The following equipment will be provided:
- Crusher apparatus – Instructions for Building Your Own Crusher
- Roughly 200 pounds of weights in various sizes
- This is NOT a competition event.
- This event is open to any Odyssey of the Mind balsa team in Northern VA.
- You have a half-hour to test as many structures as you bring.
- Scheduling is on a first-come, first-served basis.
- Times are hard and fast so you do not infringe on anyone else’s time.
- There will be no determination of what is or is not a legal structure. What you choose to test is your business. Just don’t hurt anything.
- Teams must bring their structure(s) in some sort of larger box or bag so other teams cannot see the design.
- This testing opportunity is for the benefit of the individual team.
- You may not discuss weight held with any other team (they really don’t need to know).
- Clean up after yourself! A broom and trash will be available.
