Tape Pool Noodles

Are you allowed to tape the pool noodles together inside the bumper with duct tape?

It isn’t allowed this year.

Incorrect. See Team Update 2/11
[http://frc-manual.usfirst.org/Updates/0#term 162](http://frc-manual.usfirst.org/Updates/0#term 162)

So it is allowed as long as it doesn’t compress the bumpers?

That’s the way I read it. Also, the question was specifically asked in Q&A, response was to read the update.

Yes, but don’t get carried away.

Please remember that the tape alone is not the covering material. You still have to cover the taped pool noodles with covering material
