I'll have to go back and read the rule again about if we damage the guide
walls unintentionally. They are just a fragile design.  But if the walls are
not solid it may change the behavior of the robots and the time it takes for
the judges to piece them together may be a factor.

Will it matter if the guide walls are down? I assume it's affecting your
