Pasta Bridges

QUESTION:  Does the bridge have to go from one ‘base’ on one side to another ‘base’ on the other only, or can there be more than one base on one or other sides of the bridge?

ANSWER:  The number of "bases" is only limited to the amount of pasta provided/selected.  Keep in mind of the following:

a,  Height must be at least 2.5 cm high, and at least 2.5 cm wide, at its narrowest point over the span, with the 2nd tie breaker the closet to the 2.5 cm width.

b.  Clay can only provide stability, not height

c.  Types of shaped pasta during the competition varies per year, of which you get 8 pieces, so size of the pasta varies.
