On your referee training you said that when manipulating game pieces in the start zone team members can not touch the robot and the game pieces at the same time. Can a team member manipulate the game pieces while the robot is in the start zone? Team member is not touching the robot. Thanks!

There's no requirement that stipulates where the robot has to be while the game pieces are being rearranged. However, understand that manipulating the pieces while the robot is in the Robot Start Zone can be dangerous; if you touch a game piece while the game piece is touching the robot, that is considered the same as touching the robot - game pieces touching other game pieces is considered a single "game piece" for the purposes of touch (because of inelastic collisions between game pieces). Make sure that it is obvious to the referee that you're in NO WAY making contact with the robot by rearranging game pieces.
