With clarification my read on the manure is that the referee has 5. There are 5 in base. There 2 on board. Thus there are 7 that can score resulting in the potential of 40 points outlined in your para. 3. I understand the referee to put pieces as penalties in the white triangle in the SE corner near the seal.

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.
