organizer if you’re intending on using this as a method of locomotion.


Will jumping and hopping be allowed in the open featherweight class at the nationals? The sportsman class?

I have no issue with hopping. I think it would classify as a novel form of locomotion for weight bonus. However you need to be able to show controlled motion. If I say move from one corner to another and it flops all over the place its not controlled motion.

Cool. My plans have moved on from jumper to full walker, but probably won't get it done for nationals.

Can we do flame at the nationals? I'd consider fitting out Flamin Heck to compete in the featherweight division if so.
