ICT Fairy Fights #2

This event is located at the Lion's Club building in Oxford, Ks which is about 40 miles southeast of Wichita. This is generally a 35-minute up to about 50-minute drive from the Wichita area depending on your exact location. The event format will be either be round-robin (if 8 robots or less) or double-elimination (if 9 to 16 robots). Each robot is only allowed to have 3 crew members that can work in the pit areas. Others who plan only to spectate will be allowed without limitation outside of the pit area so long as we do not exceed the building's maximum practical capacity. In the unlikely event that the capacity would be exceeded by spectators, access to the building is on a first come-first serve basis. 

Keep in mind when designing for this competition that the arena is small at only 2' x 2' and features a spinning arena hazard in one corner that is powered by an Emax 2205 on a 2s lipo. It will not be running at 100% speed, but it is still capable of causing real damage to a fairyweight robot. However, if it becomes damaged, it will likely not be repaired for the remainder of the competition. There will be no pit.

Entry Fee

$10 per robot (cash only); limit 2 robots per driver

- If less than 16 robots are registered by Saturday, August 3rd, I will allow an unlimited number of robots per driver, but keep in mind that you are not guaranteed to not be scheduled to fight your own robot in the first round.
