Also, if your device tips over while/before (before I'm not so sure, but oh well) then that DQ's your team. :(
This two time block for junkyard is horrible. Do you think it is most probable that we will get catapult?
2 time block? You sign up for the time block.

And about the "all" thing, well, I have no idea what it is :P They might announce the challenge then.

You build it first thing in the morning, then you sign up for the time block to test it later in the day.

Oh.

That's actually kinda interesting...and if your model falls over while it's sitting there, then i assume you aren't DQ'd.

No, I don't think so. I don't think it matters if it falls over while you're not testing.

Agreed.

So 60 teams will be in one gym at the same time? Wow :P

Yup. It's a basketball gym or something...or something like that, from the pic that NSO has on the website.

So, if your device falls or breaks by itself, do you have any idea what will happen?

IDK. If you aren't testing it and your device breaks, then I have no idea.

However, when you're testing it and if it falls/breaks, then yes you are DQ'd. But if the event supervisor/assistant(s) tips it over, then they'll probably let you pick it back up.
