NBN World's Pits

We are planning out our pits for World’s. In looking at the dimensions, they just don’t seem correct. The FAQ for VRC and IQ states that each pit is 10’ x 10’ with an 8’ back wall and a 3’ sidewall. We’ve had 2 pits side by side for the past 2 years so they would have been 10’ deep and 20’ wide. They don’t seem nearly that big?
It’s seems like they were 5’ deep, not 10?
VRC will work out for us either way, but we wanted to have our field set out in the IQ pit and it would need much of this space.

Does anyone else remember pit size. After the 2’ deep table, did it feel like you had 8’ left in depth?

I remember it being 10’x10’ however it does feel smaller when we put our robot box and all of our tools in the back with the table in front

did you measure it?

We never needed to…

I just remember opening up the tool box, 3’, and that almost already coming in contact with the 2’ table. Even though the table was at the front of the pit.

I may be way off, but it almost seems like they included aisle way in the pit measurement
