Western Allied Robotics events use a modified double-elimination format. The final is decided with a single final match. If there are 5 or fewer bots in a weight class they will use a round-robin format. Please read the Rules to make sure your bot qualifies to compete.
Pit table space may be limited so plan accordingly. Also, the pit area will not be secure from Saturday night to Sunday morning. Robots and tools will need to be taken home or moved to a storage room at the venue. If you have any questions let us know via email or the Western Allied Robotics Facebook Group. If registration hits capacity we may have a 4-bot per team limit to make sure everyone gets a chance to compete.
We typically have some churn before the event so put your bot on the wait-list. Wait-lists will be first-come-first-serve. Based on past events there is a good chance that the first few bots on the wait-lists for each class will get to compete.
