2.     The other 4 Frisbees will be thrown during the distance and accuracy test.

 

Design and Construction Rules

 

1.     The diameter of the Frisbee must be greater than 8 inches but no more than 12 inches

2.     The height of the Frisbee must not be greater than 2.5 inches.

3.     No prepackaged or pre mixture concrete can be used, the Frisbee mixture must be at least 60% hydraulic Portland cement.
