I had the opportunity to be the head ref at a Maryland state tournament over the weekend and there was discussion about mission models that fell out of base. Let me explain. The robot was in base and inactive as the team members were working preparing for the next mission. One of the kids bumped an attachment and the eyes fell out of base onto the mat. One of the other judges stated that they should be taken away as they were no longer in base. But clearly this was not intentional and robot was not active so I allowed them to pick up the eyes and continue. Did I make the right call?
