Thanks so much for replying Michael, but I am still stumped.  Because it
does make a difference which end you start.  The entire thing will be
shifted almost a half inch difference.  And we need to know what the table
at the tournament will be like.  If you start by placing the piece closest
to the south wall down first, then work your way up, the model will extend
over the blue line about a half inch on the end by the east wall.  And if
you start putting them down with the piece by the east wall, then it will be
shifted by a half inch difference on the south side.  Do you know what I
mean?
Our team is actually working on a mission where they come quite close to the
south end of the ice sheet, and it would make a difference if it were
sticking out another half inch, or if it was lined up with the blue marks.

Am I seeing something wrong?
Thanks so much for your help,
Sonya
