While we are on the topic of manure…M15 references M09 penalties. What are these penalties? The word “penalty” does not appear under M09.

>> QUESTION ON POINTS: I see only two (2) locations on the board where manure samples to be placed - one in middle of the board and other one at the panda release (designated locations).
>> 1. Does this mean, rest of ten manure samples can be placed anywhere in the base by the team ?
>> 2. If the team succeeds in moving all ten manure samples from base and two manure samples located at designated location, one at a time, to training and research area then the team would get 12*5 = 60 points ? and additional 5 Points for having completed M15. Does this mean the team would get 65 points in total ?
>> 3. Per M15 penalties section, If the referee is holding 5 of the 10 manure samples with him/her, does this mean the team gets to move only seven(7) samples instead of twelve(12) – per challenge update document changed from 10 to seven. If team moves manure samples one at a time to the training and research area, does this mean the team would get a maximum of 7*5 = 35 plus 5 for completing the mission, now potentially 40 in total ?
>>
>> QUESTION ON PENALTIES LISTED UNDER M15:
>> 1. When Referee place manure sample in white triangle, in the south west area for interrupting the robot? Is this just a gesture to show the team that they have six (6) point penalty ?
>> 2. The tringle that is referenced in M15 PENALTIES section, Is this the triangle where FIRST is written (right above the big LEGO logo in the base) ?
