Q: #64 rubber bands come in different thicknesses (1/32, 1/64 inch, etc.) Can you tell us the thickness of the rubber bands that will be provided by the event supervisor, or the brand name of the bands, so that we could practice with the same type? (section: Description / paragraph:  / sub-paragraph:  / line: Construction: 4.d.)

A: The rubber bands for Paddle Boats will be purchased from Staples.

Q: Are we allowed to use screws instead of nails for the paddle boats? (section: Competition / paragraph:  / sub-paragraph:  / line: 2)

A: Screws are not listed as one of the possible materials and are therefore prohibited. Part of the challenge of the event is to design the boat within the parameters of the rules.
