    Attached is the latest version of the Roborama2013a rules and course
document. No more rule changes are anticipated, however instructions to the
Perot Museum, event timing, and prize updates will be made as needed.

Changes from the last update:

1.  A third sumo class has been added to the competition. The new class is
"plastic fasteners only". It is for those who enjoy working with
construction systems such as "Lego". The class is not limited to a given
construction system. Systems can be mixed and custom "bricks" can be used.
The main build limitation for this class is that all connections must be
plastic fasteners only. The size limitation for this class is a square foot
and a mass of less than 1500g. This class is conducted on a larger arena
(~42 inches).

2.  Clarification of what "returned" means in the Table Top 2 competition.
A can is "returned" when it is completely in the start area. The robot
doesn't need to be in the start area.

3.  Specification of alternate flooring for the Can Can Soccer competition
is defined. If the original competition floor looks like it might be
damaged, a protective covering may be used. The rules list some
possible alternative coverings.

4.  A prize listing has been started and will be updated as new prizes are

Steve, Please update the website. THANKS!
