BTW, it is a great strategy and commendable for teams capturing both mice's same time (my team is experiencing same overhang without spilling bacteria), but game developer Scott may have thought about such competitive move options and created this unique mission. 
 
Don't feel sorry for not being gracious, but it may not work for all - Keep trying.  I would love to see such unique designs succeed.

Subject: Re: [VADCFLL-L] Rat entering base

Keying off two parts of this description, I would assume that the
referee would NOT call the rat in Base:

(a) it "never really enters base"
(b) it is "hanging over the south wall"

  Base is a volume that extends to the inside surface of the border
walls (Rule 8), so items that are entirely over the wall or outside
the wall would not be considered in Base.

  The first phrase indicates that the rat never even passed through
Base, so there isn't much room for benefit of the doubt that the team
was just slightly late in touching the robot.
