The time, true, is in no way trivial and certainly reflects a part of the team's ability, but it does vary from run to run, and when you get to higher levels of competition at which point many teams have very fast arms, this variance would be significant. Although time as a method of determining placement works fine for things like the aviation events, I personally feel that, for an event like robot arm, a type of variable scoring such a the height score discussed earlier would be a better way of ensuring that there are far fewer ties.

So, any word from anyone on what the proposed rule changes were last weak at the summer institute? Playing field size change? Object change? etc?
