Default YAY!!!!!

i was at a competition thursday-saturday and i actually won something, my friend and i got 1st place in the event where we had to build a bridge or a tower. this year they told us to build a bridge with a under carriage. well anywayz, me and my friend's bridge held 3833 times its weight. the closest to beating us was in the highschool division "we are in the jr high division because of shortate of space at the high school" we got to hear the h.s. people say "damn, a couple of jr. high kids beat us" hehehehe

Sweet! What materials were allowed, and in what quantities, and what was the span?
