If you leave it out a while, the folds relax quite a bit, but you can also use a blow dryer on the back to hasten that. We have not set our field up yet, as I can't start till school does, but mine has flattened out nicely on the guest bed at home!

I have not been paying much attention, until today (I've been procrastinating), to our field setup box that arrived a week or two ago. When I opened the box, first thing I noticed was the mat, all folded up, within the box. When I layed it out on the table, the second thing I noticed is that it has some significant creases caused by the folding of the mat. I'm thinking the creases may cause some issues with robot navigation. I have two questions and please forgive me they have been asked before: 

1) How do we smooth out the mat? In years past, when the mat came in a tube, I knew what to do. I'm at a loss here. 
2) When we show up at a regional tournament and the tables were set up the night before, will there be some concerted effort to make sure the mats are smooth? 

Thanks,
