I’d like to jump into the conversation and give my opinion (and see if Steve corrects me)…

 

The trailer’s back wheels don’t necessarily have to touch the mat, the mission description says, “with any of its wheels touching the port dock north of the white line”. If at least one of the wheels, either front or back, are touching the mat north of the white line, you meet the criteria for this mission.

MISSION: REFRIGERATED GROUND TRANSPORT

SCORING CONDITION(S): Get points for one of these only…

---The trailer in Base is worth 12 POINTS.

-----------OR-----------

---The trailer with meat inside, and no germs inside, with any of its wheels touching the port dock north of the white line is worth 20 POINTS, and 6 ADDITIONAL POINTS for each big fish inside. For fish points, the baby fish must still be touching its mark.

 

For additional unofficial clarification, listen to Scott Evans discuss the nuances of this mission. Advance to 1:31:45 in the recording: http://firstlegoleague.org/sites/default/files/Challenge/TeamResources/FoodFactor/FLLRobotGame2011.mp3 When considering what Scott says in the recording, please remember that this is unofficial guidance according to Rule28:

 

28 — PRECEDENCE/AUTHORITY

• You get information about the robot game from more than one place. Once in a while, information from different places conflicts. So here is the order of precedence for the sources:

1 = CURRENT Robot Game Updates, 2 = Missions and Field Setup, 3 = Rules

• If something on a page conflicts with something else on the same page, the most sensible interpretation is assumed. If two interpretations seem equal, the interpretation most favorable for the team is assumed.

• On all pages, videos and pictures are for guidance and example only. Often they can not express complete information, and are therefore misleading. When there is conflict between pictures/videos and text, the text takes

precedence!

• The head ref at a tournament is required to base decisions on the information above, in the order shown above. No other source of information is official, including e-mails from Robot Game Support.

Best Regards,

Bill

According to my son who was ref at a tournament, leaving the trailer in its original position does not get points because the back wheels don't TOUCH the mat.

If the wheels are touching at the beginning, then they will be touching at the end in the same position.

 

Sorry for any confusion

I haven’t interpreted it that way:  The mission description says “any of its wheels touching the port dock north

of the white line.”   Even in its starting position, it has two wheels satisfying that condition.  So it would seem that restoring that position at the end would be satisfactory.  I don’t see anything in the updates to indicate otherwise.

The wheels do not touch the ground in the original position.  The trailer must be manipulated to lift the front end or lower the wheels

I just want to make sure that our team is not missing anything on the Refrigerated Ground Transport mission.  Is it safe to say that the trailer in its original starting position satisfies the criteria for the mission option to have the trailer with the meat inside, no germs, with any of its wheels touching the port dock north of the white line?
