Each mission description has a "Specific physical requirement, visible at the end of the match" which is what scoring is based on.  Scoring for the Transport mission is only based on the condition of the field at the end of the match.

A couple of missions also have a "Method Constraint" which might disqualify scoring for that particular mission during the match, but the ending condition is important for all.

Temporary results that are changed before the end of the match  (like the Yellow Bin being supported by the Truck for a while, before getting dumped later) are not relevant for scoring.

So now I'm very confused.

We took this to mean that the truck has to fully support the yellow bins weight at any point during the mission (Note fully support weight DOES NOT MEAN it has to be squarely in place on the truck) earn 50 points. If the bin is then dumped east of the trucks guide (note it doesn't necessarily still need to be on the truck at this point) they earned the additional 60.

Based on our score sheets, this would not be correct.  For two of the runs where we received a YES on "Yellow Bin completely East of Truck's Guide" we received a NO on supports all of Yellow Bin's weight.

So based on our scores, there is something askew about our thinking.  How do we interpret this correctly?

Is our thinking of fully supporting weight incorrect because the bin didn't land squarely on the truck during transport?

Help appreciated.
