Dear Jared,

Please take the time to carefully and completely read the Rules and 
Missions documents supplied by FIRST. You and your team members 
should know those rules, because they tell what you must and cannot 
do.

Velcro is not a LEGO product, and therefore cannot be used anywhere, 
on the field or on the robot. The velcro-like material that comes 
with the field kit is to be placed at the X marks, for holding models 
down. The tables used in competition will be constructed according to 
the instructions you received, so you should follow those 
instructions closely so that your team practices on the same kind of 
table they will compete on.

The "touch penalty" is described in the Rules and Missions documents. 
In short, they lose a penalty piece (one of the standing-up 
cylinders) for touching the robot outside of Base. Be sure they 
understand when they may and may not touch the robot in order to 
avoid penalties.

Best of luck!
Mike
