Distance to the shortcut?

Post by jwatte » Fri Feb 20, 2015 10:01 am

Thanks for posting the rules for the new venue!
I just realized that the posted course description doesn't set out the distance from the first corner to the shortcut.
I could eyeball it by measuring pixels, but that seems less ideal than being given an accurate measurement.

Separately: Is the idea that the secret hazard of doom is not know or described until the day of competition, or will we have some time to plan algorithms/sensors before the day of?

Alrighty - what I understand is: The dimensions aren't currently given, but it can be modified to include those measurements. It's roughly 106 feet to get to the shortcut. Updates will come soon!

Thanks. I see the measurement now.
Separately, should I plan on not knowing the doom trap before race day, or will we get info before then?

Another Question on the same topic. 25 points for rounding each of 4 corners. Using the shortcut will you gain the points for 4 corners, or 2?
