There is a discrepancy between the game manual and the field assembly instructions regarding the positioning of the balls that are under the bar. The game manual shows in Fig 2, 16, 17 & 18 the center of the ball in line with the edge of the bar. The field assembly instructions show the center of the bar in line with the center of the ball.
I am aware that <G16> Be prepared for minor field variance. Field tolerances may vary by as much as ±1” unless otherwise specified. Teams must design Robots accordingly.
However since the field assembly instructions and the game manual seem to disagree, I would appreciate if you could clarify the intended precise position of the ball.
