Team Update 2012-02-03

No major changes; unless you're an MAR/MI team.
http://frc-manual.usfirst.org/TeamUpdates/0#term%20106

I really hate how they separate the Game and Administrative manual update sections.

Power Distribution
[R37]
Items specifically prohibited from use on the Robot include:
  • circuit breakers used on the Power Distribution (PD) Board that are different from the Snap Action breakers provided in the KOP, and
  • PD Boards and/or fuse panels other than the single PD Board provided in the KOP since 2009, and.
Operator Console
[R80]
The Driver Station software provided on the Kit of Parts website is the only tool permitted to specify and communicate the operating mode (i.e. Autonomous/Teleop) and operating state (enable/disable) to the Robot. The Driver Station software must be revision 11.30.11.00 01.07.12.00 or newer.
In the following, the section on MAR WFFA is new, and the changes to the section before it were to change it to MI procedure only.

Re: Team Update 2012-02-03

Wait a minute. So once a mentor gets a WFFA in FiM or MAR, he or she can never be nominated again?

I thought that was the rule for the WFA in general.

They can't be nominated for the WFFA again, but once you win WFFA you can be nominated for the WFA in a later year. Once you win a Finalist award, you are not eligible for the Finalist award again, but remain eligible to be submitted for the Championship award.
Quote:
FIRST Championship WFA – All prior Regional WFFA recipients are eligible to be re-nominated for the current FIRST Championship Woodie Flowers Award. However, if a team has multiple prior Regional WFFA recipients, then the team may only re-nominate one of those previous recipients.
