    F2 – Supported by one or more fans: In this context, “fans” means enthusiastic spectators not participating in the game, not mechanical devices for moving air. Thus, one or more characters will be observably supporting a contestant.

    C2 – Score Cross Bar and taped boundaries & Figure C: The boundary lines are only a visual reference to help judges determine whether or not a structure has crossed over the Score Cross Bar entirely or partially between its endpoints. Structures are not required to land within the boundary lines but must cross above some point of the Score Cross Bar. For example, if a solid wall was placed directly above the Score Cross Bar the structure would have to impact it to be a successful toss.

    F1 – Trash item: The type of trash item must be something that is commonly discarded in its current form but is not allowed to be perishable (garbage). The trash item is a single item but the team is allowed to have many of the same items. The copies may vary in proportion but must be the same in construction and appearance.

    C2 – Site, Set-up and Competition: The Staging Area Judge will ask the team if it wishes for the officials to remove the Score Cross Bar from the performance area once weight placement begins. If it does, the team is allowed to signal the officials at any time. Only an OFFICIAL may remove the Cross Bar and once it is removed it cannot be returned to the performance area by anyone.
