and demonstrate some our robot technologies. If you have any of these
cars/trucks etc designed for kids and would like to donate them please
let us know. We will be getting other schools and groups involved.
Just wanted to point out that the TRI rule changes worked very well this weekend. Anyone looking to make changes for an off-season I highly recommend basing them off the TRI rules. They dramatically reduced fouls and cards and allowed the teams/robots to play the game.
Starting with the launch rule… I’m swiping parts of that one. (And adding clarification as to what a launch actually is as far as being called.)
Had an offseason back in May that called the launch rule only if the cube left the field, and the robot was in an illegal position. The first part never happened. I think we called 6 penalties of any type all event, and 4 of those were in the final match (offsetting null zone hits as I recall).
