Towers C

Q: By saying span, does the entire base of the tower need to be outside the square opening, or can a tower cut the corners of the opening. For instance if it is an octagon, is it possible for the edges of the tower base to come over the corners of the opening as long as there is sufficient space for the loading chain. (section: 3 / paragraph: b / sub-paragraph:  / line: 1)

A: Yes, the tower base can "cut across" the 20cm square opening so long as no part of the tower passes below the top surface of the Test Base.

Q: In past years there was a limit on wood size. Is there a limit on the thickness of the wood pieces we use on our cross sections? (section: 1 / paragraph: a / sub-paragraph: i / line: 1)

A: No. Please refer to 3.a.ii.

Q: Can the wood be bent to form a continuous ring on the base of the tower. (section: 3 / paragraph: a / sub-paragraph: i / line: 1)

A: Yes.
