Re: Field Pictures

Rick, the base plates actually get positioned beneath the tiles, don't they?

There are plates above the tiles, and plates below the tiles (which have pre-inserted threaded PEM Standoffs). These two plates get bolted together in such a way that they sandwich the tiles, and hold everything in place.

This is all outlined in the assembly instructions of Appendix A.

Re: Field Pictures

Rick, could you post a closeup picture of the high goal, and give me its dimensions? We have 21 sacks and a trough, and we want to have a high goal, but we don't want to by a bunch of other stuff. We were thinking we could make our own high goal.

You can get them from Appendix A of the manual, especially in VEX Sack Attack- Field Specs.20120413.pdf.

Great! I'm not sure from the diagrams, but the high goal is a flat tray with a .5" lip, correct? Does the lip go up or down from the tray?

Yes. There is a 1/2 inch lip going up.

Re: Field Pictures

Here is the trough that we have done right now. Everything is exactly to spec with the real field. All that needs to be done is the high goal and particians.

Re: Field Pictures

Are the troughs sturdy ? Are you able to shake them ?
