Answered: T05 contradiction

In the first pay off the rule it says the team members must wear safety glasses in the pit but later is says safety glasses are highly recommended.

This means that while you are in your specific pit working on a robot, you must be wearing safety glasses. However, when you are simply walking through the room that houses the pits, you do not need to wear your safety glasses. We ask that both our participants and tournament staff/volunteers exercise some common sense when enforcing these rules.
