"Hidden Freedoms" are a part of every FLL challenge so I wonder if this is 
an opportunity.  What text should be considered besides the scoring 
condition?  It states "the flower centerpiece can be there too".  It doesn't 
say "must be there."  Steve noted that the referee will not adjust the field 
set up prior to a match to a position requested by the team.  After the 
match begins, what constrains a team from removing the flower from the 
table?

MISSION: GROCERIES - Here's your chance to buy undamaged goods, as fresh as 
possible, with the fewest ingredients possible, from trustable places, and 
get your cold stuff home and put away as soon as possible!

SCORING CONDITION(S): EACH grocery unit is worth 2 POINTS if the table is 
supporting all of its weight, and no weight other than grocery units (the 
flower centerpiece can be there too).
