On Target

Question:

Please remind us the potential distance range for the target. I seem to remember being told to anticipate somewhere between 100 and 700 centimeters. Please confirm or correct.

Answer:

Please read through the Detailed event description carefully where you will find under #20

The center of the target will lie on a line that is extended perpendicularly from the center of the front of the launcher. The target will be between 7 and 17 meters from the launcher. The approximate distance of the target from the launcher will be announced no later than three weeks prior to the Olympiad. This value will be announced as a range of plus or minus one half meter. No exact distance will ever be provided. The actual target distance may be different for different grades
