The T-10 Class Association is considering a change to the rules that provide specifications for the main boom. The purpose of this posting is to get feedback prior to the rule change being put to the members of the class association for a vote. Feedback may be provided either in the T-10 Class Association Facebook Page Posting or via email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The current main boom specification reads as follows: 3.5.6 b) The boom section shall be the Kenyon E-Section (0.375’ +/- 0.010’ x 0.229 +/- 0.010’).
Kenyon has changed the specifications for the E-Section boom so that it is no longer possible to purchase a new main boom that meets the T-10 Class Association rules.
The proposal is that the T-10 Class Association Rules will be modified to allow for the use of main booms manufactured by the class association, similar to how the class association currently manufactures and sells mast sections. It is expected that the class boom will be less expensive than the Kenyon E-section boom.
The revised rule would read as follows: 3.5.6 b) The boom section shall be the Kenyon E-Section or similar. Sections extruded after 04/17/2018 shall be in accordance to Official Plan B Boom Section (Samuel Son & Co. Die No. H7479 Rev. A 4/04/18)
