Q: Where is the target distance measured from? Is the 2-4 or 2-5 meters measured from the foul line, or from the back of the Catapult Launching area? (section: . Description says the target will be “placed between 2 and 5 meters.”  / paragraph:  / sub-paragraph:  / line: . Description says the target will be “placed between 2 and 5 meters.” )

A: Students should be prepared to hit a target placed 2-5 meters from a designated foul line. They may move the catapult within a 2 meter area behind the foul line, but may not cross the foul line. The distance to the center of the target is measured from the front foul line and will be announced after the catapults are impounded.
