your tower seemed to be strong enough to hold alot more than that
just goes to show how some invites are unprepared
did you guys fill an appeal afterward?
and what do you guys think of the tower legs? i mean how its bent inward? is that a good idea?

The loading surface wasn't level at all too, but the biggest thing that irked us was the block. Our coach and our builders measured the block and told them but we didn't bring our block and some towers were already tested. That was the reason we had a premature break...but since it was invites I guess it was a good learning experience to always be ready with a block.

Too bad some of the teachers who are running events won't take it serious. Can you imagine going to a school football game and finding the field was slanted, or that the field was not marked? These two boys didn't even get to compete. Not one grain of sand went into the bucket.
