hey Patrick ... i was just thinking ... what if there was a few different Tower building classes (or divisions) that people could chose to compete in ... such as :
"FreeStyle Division", like the tower i made - which utilizes any Lego parts and pieces that a person can get their hands on ... in order to make a (freestanding) tower as tall as possible.
"Classic Division", in which Towers would be made of basic, common bricks ... for example ... rounds, plates, squares, slopes, etc ... but would not utilize any technic parts or pieces.
The Classic Division could even be broken down to a few classes ... such as :
"The 4x4 Classic", in which contestants build a tower that isn't any larger (thicker) than a 4x4 square ... using only common bricks of coarse.
"The 8x8 Classic", in which contestants build a tower that isn't any larger (thicker) than a 8x8 square.
And so forth, and etc. ...
Of coarse, the spirit and goal of the contest would still be the same ... to build the tallest tower possible !
I just thought that if there were different divisions and classes for people to choose from ... i think it might make it more fun and interesting.
Another reason i was thinking about this, is because i like to see what kind of towers other people can build ... and i didn't want anybody to be discouraged from trying to build one ... especially if they felt like they couldn't build a freakishly tall tower.
It's also possible that many people may not have enough bricks to build a massive tower.
Anyways, it was just a thought ... i'm not trying to persuade ya to change anything about your contest here ... i was just, like i said ... just sharing my thoughts. :) Permalink
