As you know, we have a game in which game pieces can be loaded into the robot.
We have concerns about playing with an elevated field at the World Championships! Our robot can lift into the air and we like to have the robot in the air when items are loaded. This works fine when the drivers/coaches are standing on the ground but becomes a problem if the field will be elevated at the championships.
This is especially true as we have a middle school team and they are already starting at a height disadvantage.
Question: Will the field be elevated?
Question: Will steps or platforms be available for the loading?
We are hoping that the field will be on the ground and the event is designed for the benefit of the competitors and not the benefit of the viewing audience.
Any comments would be appreciated.
