Game Elements Positioning

In the start of the game, where will the bucky balls and scoring rings be positioned (specifically at worlds): touching the respective wall/bin it goes against or an inch or so off? I know in the game manual it is about an inch off, but I have seen it both ways at events.

The Add It Up game elements will be positioned in accordance with the diagrams in the official Game Manual. A good reference is the cover photo on the Game Manual, which shows that the elements are not touching the perimeter walls or goals.
