They call that the “storm” model. It’s a bit tricky to get it set up
properly. If you follow the directions and string the axle through the holes
you should be able to get enough friction to hold it in a raised position.
The black cross pieces will be about ˝” above the field surface.  As the
setup instructions say it’s an “unstable” model and doesn’t take much to
spring it and send the wheel rolling.

 

Also, as someone else mentioned there are two changes to the models that
were made after the field mats were printed.  These are both called out in
the setup instructions but you have to pay attention.  They affect the Ice
Sheet and the Flood Gate.  The field setup instructions tell you how to
handle this.

Subject: [VADCFLL-L] test levees

 

Good morning more experienced coaches!

I have a question about the "test levees" mission model.  We built it and
thought maybe we had put it together wrong, but have checked and double
checked, and it's right.  But it is very temperamental.  The flexible black
pieces, that go between the connectors, don't seem bent the way they do in
the picture.  My question is, should I try to mold them a bit to be curved
in that direction?  And any suggestions for making it work better?

Thanks!

Sonya in Harrisonburg
