Please clarify a rule of the team captain. Must the team captain set the robot and start it?

The Team Captain is the only student that should formally interact with the referees - this is akin to Hockey where only team members with a "C" on their jerseys (the captains) can file protests or review items with the referees. Setting and starting the robot may be the job of any student on the team, but only the Team Captain should directly interact with the referee. This includes notifying the referee of the possibility of using the SUBSISTO action, presenting the Bill of Materials to the referee, and reviewing the score sheet with the referee. A good practice would be for the Team Captain to introduce themselves to the referee as the team approaches the table, so that the referee knows who to specifically address if there are concerns about the robot, its size, allowed parts, or anything else the referee would like to address with the Team Captain. The Team Captain does not even necessarily have to address the problem(s)/issue(s), the Team Captain may assign another team member the task of addressing the concern.

Thanks for asking!
