Long-Term Problem Procedures
Problem 4: Tee Structure

Before its scheduled competition time, the team or a team member must report to the weigh-in site where the structure will be measured, weighed and checked for rule infractions. At that time, the team will demonstrate how the golf balls will fit into the structure. Once the weigh-in process is over, the team must remove the golf balls. If time permits, the team may make corrections of any infractions. After filling out the weigh-in checklist, a Weigh-in Judge will seal, mark, and store the structure and golf balls in a team-supplied container or paper bag. Approximately 25 minutes before the scheduled competition time, a team member will pick up the structure and take it to the competition site.

At the staging area, the Staging Area Judge will remove the weigh-in checklist. The team will inform the judge whether Style will continue after the structure breaks.

If an adult assistant is used in Division I or II, he or she must be identified in the staging area and will remain with the team throughout the long-term solution. It must be apparent to the judges that when the adult is assisting in weight placement a team member is choosing the weights and supporting at least 50% of each one that is placed.

The only people allowed inside the testing area during the solution are the team members, judges, and adult assistants. Style may take place any time during the 8-minute competition. When the solution is completed, all wood from the structure must be placed in a paper bag and returned to the weigh-in site by a designated judge. It may be inspected again at the weigh-in site.
