Well, as someone working in building construction, I'd argue your second
condition is not fulfilled:
When turning the tank upside down you essentially make the floor your
ceiling - so the shark is NOT touching the floor anymore but the ceiling of
the tank ...

Subject: [VADCFLL-L] Shark-transport mission

Hello all,

I have a quick question regarding the shark-transport mission. At my team's
regional tournament, I noticed a lot of team have a set up like this:
- The shark is taken out of the shark tank
- The tank is then turned upside down
- The shark is place on its side (not standing), "on" the bottom of the tank
(since the tank was turned upside down, the bottom is now the top)

Now with that set up, they can easily push the shark tank to the target
location and still satisfies the requirements:
- Shark and tank are completely in Target
- Shark touching only the tank floor (NOT wall)
- Nothing touched the Shark except the tank

Is this method allowed? I would like to know since I am preparing my team
for the Championship event. To be honest, I feel like this is cheating but
the ref. did not say anything to teams that did this.

Best,
Tim
