Question: Rule G6.b Clarification

Mark Campbell (Event Partner)

We have gotten one of our teams to the Worlds for the first time. The team Lead wants to invite 6 seniors from our other teams to join him at the Worlds as "support" members. They would NOT be drivers or programmers, but would merely be there as helping to build/test the robot. This appears to be legal under rule G6.b. However:


a) Could any of the six also be on the 3-person "drive team", as long as they are not actually driving the robot?

b) He may also wish to invite his best friend, who was part of Team53 in previous years but was NOT on the team this year, to the Worlds and to be part of his "Support" group. Would this be allowed, or not?
