*Rule 30*
*30 - DOWNLOADING*
 Downloading programs to robots may take place in the pits only - never in
the competition area.
 Always download by cable.  Bluetooth must be switched off at all times.


Also, issues with MyBlocks and multiple computers are mitigated by the use
of a Pack and Go file (*.rbtx) to save and transfer the programs. See this
for additional information:

Best of Luck!
