Michael,

I'm getting old and don;t see as well as I used to but... They appear to me that they are connected in some way and based on the third bullet of Rule 13, they cannot be connected.  So, based on the rule, it would seem to me, that you could put them on your robot but not attach them to your robot, if that makes sense.  There are various ways you could accomplish "on the robot" without attaching "to the robot".

Of course, I'm not a ref and I don't play one on tv so, obviouxly, what I say is not official.  You might also ask FLL for clarification as to what the picture is showing and/or ask the same question in the forums.

Thanks,

Lloyd O'Hara

  From the games rulings page


  1 - RAPID BLOOD SCREENING PICS
  Remember, knowledge of the Rules is just as important as knowledge of the missions…  For this mission, IN is required, and TOUCHING is not.  But the NO SCORE status of Pictures 3 and 4 is not about the Mission criteria.  They fail because of the third bullet of Rule 13.  (By the way, please IGNORE the last picture under Professional Teamwork!)


  I need someone to explain to me why picture three is a no score.  it meets the requirement of "in' but fail from bullet three from rule 13 which is... 


  You are limited as to how you may connect anything to a mission model. Gently flipping and/or shaking
  one (the heavier if the two are different) must allow gravity to completely separate them. The ref does not
  allow a start with an illegal connection. See Rule 20.


  So picture three fails because the "cells" are on their sides???  


  If that is so, if the doctor and the tech are face down but in do they also fail?  


  Does that mean I can not attach the cells, the doctor, tech to my robot and drive my robot so that they are 'in" but are still attached to the robot?
