Re: paper: MARC 2012 Rule Changes

I have a question regarding the following.

Quote:
[G13]: Basketballs may not be intentionally placed out of bounds. Basketballs that inadvertently exit the side of the Court will be placed back on the Court approximately at the point of exit, at the earliest safe opportunity, by Court staff. Basketballs that inadvertently exit the Court over the Alliance Station Wall will be placed in the Corral.
Violation: Foul
- Rationale: The Robot missed the Basket and shot the Basketball over the wall. It makes sense to give control of the Basketball to their opponents, not put it back on the field in a place where it can be recovered and shot again.
If Red alliance was already holding the maximum number of balls without inbounding and Blue alliance shot 3 balls over the wall, and the new rules put the balls in the Corral, will the Red alliance receive penalties if they don't inbound 3 balls quick enough?

Re: paper: MARC 2012 Rule Changes

I like that most of the rules are the same as competition. Such as alliance selections and Seeding. Though I may not agree with all the regulation competition rules.

Good lock to all competing at MARC.

Will their be a webcast?

A webcast would be nice. Or a FIRST in Michigan archive on their youtube channel.

No more than they would be penalized if Blue shot 3 quick baskets. Remember, Blue can't cause Red to commit fouls (except G28). So Red gets a reasonable, but short, time to enter the basketballs back onto the field.

Re: paper: MARC 2012 Rule Changes

I can appreciate the clarifications and tweaks to the rules, especially the address of rules concerning stingers. The game will be played here much like it was the rest of the season, and considering the very watchable nature of the game all season long, I'm looking forward to attending MARC again, this year!

Looking into this right now. It would be a good excuse to use my brand new scale. (THINK, THINK, THINK) Get back to you shortly on this.

All teams are allowed to have up to an additional 5 pounds on their robot. Typical off-season events don't have inspections or weight scales to know what teams have done in the off-season. So this of course is on an honesty basis.

However because I hosed my team with my really bad weight calculations this past year (20 lbs overweight), my team has purchased a floor scale. If a robots weight comes into question, then I reserve the right to have you put your robot on my beautiful new scale.
