    2) For a clean start, Rule 20 says that "YOU may NOT be touching objects the 
robot is about to move or use," and "YOU may NOT be touching objects the robot 
is touching," and, of course, Rule 21 says that the team cannot touch the robot 
just before a start or restart:  "You may not handle the robot, or anything it’s 
about to move or use, during or after the countdown, except for the single 
action needed to get the program running.  Because of these rules, it is highly 
recommend that the team members not be touching anything inBase at the time or a 
start or restart.
 
This is unclear to me. Is a clean start a restart after the robot is brought 
back, or is it the very first time the robot is turned on?    I thought I read 
in LLyod's post that you didn't to wait until the referees told you to start 
again after handing you the robot.  You could start it once it was in base 
again. 

     Also, the objects we can not touch, are those missions parts on the mat 
that are not in base then? 

I'm just trying to make sure I fully understand all the dos and don'ts.
 Thanks, 
Brandy
