Re: Definition of
I'm not clear what the rules dictate for when kids replace one
another at the table in the midst of a robot match. The basic rule is
that only two are allowed at the table, that's clear enough. But for
exchanges, the new (for 2008) rule is:
"The rest of
the team must stay back from the table, but close enough for different
members to tag in or out as desired at any time. Specific
positioning is decided by the head officials running each
What does "tagging in or out" mean, exactly? In
practical terms, does one kid need to leave the table before his or
her replacement approaches the table? Or can a by-standing kid join
the other two and 'tag' the one he/she is replacing? Only two kids
would be active in either instance, but the latter would actually have
three bodies inside the line for a short interval of time during the
swap. Our team is practicing their match logistics in order to shave
time off the clock, and this detail matters.
