If the Robot appears to damage a Mission Model while in the process of creating a scoring condition for a Mission, then the Referee has to make a judgement call:

-- was there a problem with the Model setup/construction?  If so, Benefit of the Doubt.
-- was the damage not related to creating the scoring condition?  If so, Benefit of the Doubt
-- was the damage clearly caused by the way that the Robot created the scoring condition?  If so, no points for the Mission.

  1. R17 - Field Damage

    If the Robot separates Dual Lock or breaks a Mission Model, Missions obviously made possible or easier by this damage or the action that caused it do not score.

   We are adding the Panda release mission for the State championship. A clarification

While opening the Pandda.. if the tree on the model becomes loose or comes out , but the Panda is open, do we still get points?

Any penalties?
