Extra parts in Field Element Kit 1?

So there is a bag of 4 long screws and a bag of washers in the kit that are not mentioned as part of the field assembly in the platform kit. What are they for?

Simple answer - no clue!

Asked and got no answer (forget if here or on FaceBook coach group).

Hope someone knows!

Simple, it’s a form of quality control. If you find yourself with extra, unused peices, you’re more likely to double check your work to make sure you did it right. Therefore field assemblies will be on average of greater quality.

Or perhaps they’re something to throw at teammates while you work without worrying about losing an important part.

Or maybe it’s just mind games.

I asked previously in a thread which is now deleted but the response I got was “Don’t worry about it”.

So I guess don’t worry about it? :grin:

I like to think that in 20 seasons time, we’ll have enough spare parts to make a new field; VEX Robotics Competition Mind Games.
