Answered: Robot Skills Test Shot

Are we allowed to have a test shot before a robot skills run? A fast answer would be appreciated because we are in a tournament right now and they aren’t allowing us to do a test shot before our robot skills run

We ask you to please thoroughly read the VEX Robotics Comeptition Nothing But Net Game Manual and to please review the Q&A Usage Guidelines before posting in this forum. Specifically you should search the Q&A before posting.

Here’s an entry where a person asked the exact same question that you did.

Here’s the answer if you don’t have the time to click that link.

“Provided the field personnel and head referee think there is enough time, this is acceptable. However, in most situations there will not be time for this. Extra time should never be granted for these types of test shots.”

Thus, this may be granted provided there is time, but it’s up to the field personnel.
