CROK @ The Oklahoma City Science Museum

Combat Robots of Oklahoma is back again for the first ever summer event at the Science Museum Oklahoma!

Location:  This is an indoor event at the Science Museum Oklahoma (2020 Remington Pl, Oklahoma City, OK 73111). We will be fighting on the mezzanine.

Time:  Competitors can begin arriving at 8:30 AM.  Safety will begin as soon as the doors are open. We want brackets to be finalized by 11:00 AM. Please be on-site by 10:30 AM so that we can get all of the robots through safety checks before we start matches.  The museum will close at 6:00 PM, so we must be done with the tournament brackets at that time.

Facilities:  Tables and chairs are provided by the venue.  Bathrooms are onsite.  Electrical outlets may be limited, so it is recommended to bring your own power strips and extension cords.  

Food: Competitors must order their own lunch. You can have food delivered to the front of the museum or head to the museum cafe. There will only be short breaks so I reccommend you eat the first chance you get.

Arena:  The arena is 8 ft x 8 ft x 4 ft tall with a wooden floor.  There is a seam in the middle of the floor, but we do our best to minimize it.

Robots:  Robots must meet the SPARC Robot Construction Specifications.  In addition, no fire weapons or ICE (Internal Combustion Engines).  A LiPo charging bag must be used when charging your batteries.  Weapon locks and sharp edge covers must be used while the bot is outside of the arena.

Weight Classes: Plastic Ant (1 pound plastic only), Ant (1 pound) and Beetle (3 pound).  If you have a Fairy (150 gram) you are more than welcome to bring it for grudge matches.  Once the tournaments are over, or during any dead time, we will hold grudge matches and rumbles for those that are interested.  

Note: Each DRIVER is only allowed to MAIN DRIVER OF 3 ROBOTS in total across any weightclass. You're welcome to have more than one robot compete in a weightclass but keep in mind that repair times may be constrained.

Format: Dependent on number of entrants.  Robots registered in tournament will be guaranteed at least two fights. 

Fees: Competitors entering the museum will require a purchase of a ticket for $9. All you need to do is go to the front desk, tell them that you are participating in the event, and they'll give you the discounted ticket price. Note that you must be a participant in the event in order to recieve the discounted ticket price. Spectators are still expected to pay the regular entry ticket.

The registration for the tournament is $20 per bot in both full combat Ants and Beetles while Plastic Ants are $10. Fees will be handled at the event.

Prizes:  Prizes for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place finishers in each weight class.
