Team 1629 will provide all materials needed, including GPS units, with the exception of the egg chucking contestants, who will need to bring their pre-built egg chucking machines. All egg chuckers must be within a 30x30x30 inch volume for the entire launch sequence and may not use combustibles or compressed air. Mechanical devices such as slingshots, catapults, and trebuchets are allowable as long as they conform to the sizing restrictions. Hard boiled eggs will be used for the competition and will be provided at the event.
Exact times and rules for all activities can be found online at www.team1629.com.
