I received the new field kit for Senior Solutions a few weeks ago and now finally have time to write about it. In case you haven’t seen the mat layout, here it is:
I’m struck by the fact that there are a lot of obstacles this year. Nothing is easy to get to. I’m also intrigued by the green lines and the slanted line on the South side.
I’m not sure I like the fact that FIRST folded the mat this year. The creases may or may not come out and even if you get them out in your mat, it will be interesting to see the conditions of the mats at the tournaments. Hopefully, they won’t become a huge issue.
Our team is about halfway done with the mat models, so when we finish next week, I’ll post the finished board. I also got some preliminary information about the missions and they are very intriguing.
More information to come.
