Valerie,

I'm not quite sure how to answer your question.  I'll take the general 
approach.  Attachments, if need, should be constructed to fit the need for 
accomplishing the mission.  Take for example, returning the doctor to base 
so you can send her back out to the patient area, the team would probably 
want to construct an attachment that captures, in some way, the doctor.  It 
may, or may not be moveable.  You will be surprised by the variety of 
solutions you see at a tournament.  The team needs to construct something 
that best fits their approach to solving the mission

Now, onto the moveable portion of the question. The only way teams I've 
coached have had moveable attachments is to have a motor on-board to drive 
the attachment (yes, I realize there are ways to have moveable attachments 
with out motors).  As I said earlier, its all a matter of need and how the 
the team wants to construct the solution.

I hope I'm making sense.  If not, let me know and I'll try again.

Thanks,

Lloyd O'Hara
Coach, Crestwood Monarchs
