I am a bit confused and I'm hoping somebody can
help out. I applied the bacteria dispenser fixes as noted and originally
had some droop. However, I no longer have droop, does this mean I did
29 - DROOPY BACTERIA
True enough, the small fixes applied to the bacteria
dispensers weren't enough to stop them from leaning. Better fixes would
have either been too difficult to describe, or would have interfered with the
robot's path under the bin. Luckily the droop is pretty consistent, and
the dispensers work exactly as intended. This post is official acceptance
of the droop. You've all been working with the droop for about two months
now, and we're not going to mess with it on you. To teams: Expect
the same droop at tournaments as you're used to in practice. To tournament
officials: Prepare the bacteria dispensers as per Update #12, and don't
try to lessen the droop in any other way (no tape, Dual Lock, weights, further
redesign, etc.) - it would hurt teams more than it would

loc as far up on the front legs as possible and also moved the other four up to
be on the "X"'d out boxes in the middle. I have no dual lock on the back
"X"'d out blocks right now.
All of our robot and code design is based on this.
What do we need to change, redesign, recode, and practice to not be at a
disadvantage come this Saturday at LC Bird? Can anybody
