I don't know if I missed an update or what, but I am
confused on the proper length of the puck posts. In
the manual, the length of the post is shown to be 1' 4.5".
When I went to the Chicago regional (as a spectator),
the posts looked like they were about 2.5 feet. We
cut the posts to 1' 4.5" and put them in the puck, and
compared the way it looked to the video tape I took in
Chicago, and they look totally different. Any help
would be appreciated.

The poles are 24" tall...there's a nice picture in Update 3 on page 5:

The picture shows how to construct the flag, but is also shows the
dimentions of the pole.

We were pretty confused about it too...I don't think it was in any
official statement...there was talk of it on this board though.

Thanks for the information. I went to that update and found it there.
