Q168 Pit Crew during Playoffs Limitations?

Post by Robot »

Q168: This section of the manual explicitly allows 3 additional pit crew members during the Playoffs. What does this mean? May those 3 team members accompany the team to the queueing area to be able to maintain the robot between playoff matches? Can the FTA/HR put limitations on this? Can they change the number of allowed pit crew members? Can they change when the pit crew is allowed to join the drive team (QF, SF, Finals)? if limitations/exceptions exist can they please be added to the manual?
A:
Yes, pit crew members may accompany the DRIVE TEAM to the queue and are expected to help DRIVE TEAM members to service the ROBOT as needed (safely). There are no provisions for exceptions where FIELD STAFF can eliminate or modify this allowance.
