For Nature's Fury, I think you meant the "West" wall and South wall (to include the probable gap between the mat and West wall when the mat is placed according to the official setup instructions). Also, to be clear, it is the inside surface of the wall, not the entire wall.

"Field Mat - Make sure the mat touches the south border wall, and is centered east to west. ..."

"8 - BASE • Base is an imaginary box formed by vertical walls that rise from the perimeter of the Base area, including the inside surface of the border walls, and by an invisible ceiling 12" (305mm) high. 
• This means Base is not just an area on the mat - it’s a VOLUME.
• The lines that define Base are in Base. 
• Usually there is a gap between the mat and a side border wall… Base includes this gap (pictured in red). 
• Anything even barely in Base counts as being in Base unless the robot moves it completely out. 
• Anything in the team’s possession is understood to count as being in Base, and is okay to store or handle."

> They can use that, as long as it all fits inside base. Reminder bass extends to the east wall and the south wall so it can touch the walls in base. in fact I would recommend that you put your jig against a wall.

>> 4 - EQUIPMENT • EVERYTHING - Everything you use in the competition area directly or indirectly for strategy (mission-related activity) must be made entirely of LEGO-manufactured elements in original factory condition.  Stickers are not allowed, except LEGO stickers, applied per LEGO instructions.  Paint, tape, glue, oil, zip-ties, etc. are not allowed.

>> Hi,
>> 
>> I'm coaching a rookie team consisting of elementary school kids. One of the kid in our team came up with the idea to place a paper at the base with all the markings to start the motor for the various missions. I'm not sure whether we'd place this paper with the various markings at the base and place the robot on top. I would like to get the input from the community before letting the team know.

>> Thanks!
