Rules Update

by eklund on Nov.12, 2016, under Uncategorized

During the second workshop the King of the Hill ramp and rules were tested and reviewed by the teachers present. Please note the updated rules here. In summary the ramp will be lower and the white boarder around it will be wider to make it easier to avoid, should teams choose such a strategy. Please review the updated rules carefully. Changes are highlight in bold-italics.
