Can part of your entry be touching the ping pong ball at the end and still score the double points?

Where is the pom container located? If the teams control the position, can it extended past the start box (half in, half out).

Just to clarify JMonsorno's question, can teams place the pom container as they wish subject to the requirements, or do judges place the pom container? Are we correct in assuming that judges will randomly place the poms within the pom box?

At the end of the game, if the orange sponge ball is on top of and touching the sponge cube, and the cube is in the transport touching the board surface, does the electricity rule apply and both score?

Wow, I just looked at the images you posted for the funnels. They don't look anything like the funnels in the v1.1 rules image. I thought they were to be green and orange, but what I saw was black and brown. Do the green poms go in the black stripe funnel and the orange poms go in the brown stripe? What is the tape you used for the brown funnel and why didn't you use the orange tape that you used on the neck of the funnel?

Yeah, what is the minimum amount of members that you need?

The 2013 event has come and past. Technically you need two people because the rules state that someone has to be in the pit but that's not enforced. I was one of two teams that was solo.
