Added 01/13/12 Information from the Coaches & Event Captain Meeting Jan. 11, 2012
No impound because the distance is set for Regionals by the event description.
Make sure the school and team name is permanently on the device.
A similar thin wire may be substituted for the paper clip.

Because the distance is set at 10 m for Regional Competitions, the Mousetrap B devices will NOT be impounded at our San Diego Regional Competition. The National SO event writer said that he agrees. The distinction between impounds at Regionals and other levels of competition is not in the event description because he did not have room on the page to state it.
