To all concerned,
The Game Development Team has recognized a potential safety hazard for referees and students that must be addressed.
The current configuration of the robot rail stop may be a safety hazard. To make the field safer, the dowel needs to not protrude below the rail. Hubs should insert a screw into the hole for the dowel 2” from the top of the rail. This will allow the dowel to perform its function for compliance and eliminate the hazard. Hubs are authorized to trim the dowel to accommodate the change.
A question and answer has also been posted to the BEST Q&A for teams to be informed.
