Are safety glasses required at the world competition and where? And for who?

Here is our statement on eye protection at the VRC World Championship:

All volunteers, drivers and coaches must wear eye protection while in the competition field areas or around the practice fields. Teams demonstrating robots to Judges or guests must also wear eye protection. Eye protection in the pits will be left up to the discretion of individual team coaches, but we **strongly **recommend that eye protection be worn by anyone working on a robot, cutting materials, or in the vicinity of a working robot. When in doubt, get the glasses out and put them on.
