Robots are allowed to attempt a total of six runs. There is a time limit by which each run must be attempted. Three or more runs must be on Saturday. A maximum of three runs are allowed on Sunday. Exceptions will be made only for religious reasons.
If all six runs are to be used, the following schedule applies:
1st run must occur Saturday between noon-1:30pm
2nd run must occur before 3pm on Saturday
3rd run must occur before 4:30pm on Saturday
4th run must occur before 11:45am Sunday
5th run must occur before 1pm on Sunday
6th run must occur before 2:45pm on Sunday
Note that there are no limitations as to how early a run can occur during competition hours.
If a robot is going to do all six runs on Sunday due to religious reasons, two runs must occur before 11:45am, the next two runs must occur before 1pm, and the final two runs must occur before 2:45pm.
If a robot does not attempt a run by the deadline, its number of allowed runs will be reduced by one.
