DATE CHANGE - APRIL 9 - ROCKET REPUBLIC
Join us in April and bring your bot!
Check in begins at 2PM, safety meeting at 2:45PM, fights commence 3PM.
PLEASE NOTE: In order to accomodate more participants, I am requesting no more than 2 bots per adult/solo teen participant and 1 bot per child participant. The participant is the person who is using the transmitter during combat. (If the brackets do not fill up, this rule will be relaxed in advance of the event to give people the ability to register more bots - but we have been experiencing more "new" drivers and we want to be able to accomodate as many participants as possible)
PLEASE ALSO NOTE: We will have the arena available no later than 2PM for you to ensure your bot is ready for combat. When you check in your bot, we will assume your bot is fully functional and ready to fight. We will publish the fight order ten minutes prior to the event. When the event commences we are assuming all bots are ready to fight per the published fight order. If we call for your bot and you are unable to produce your bot, you will forfeit the first fight. Reasonable accomodations will be made for an individual who has back-to-back fights, but it is expected each bot has a fresh battery and paired transmitter. This will only be enforced during the first round to ensure the first round goes smoothly to buy time for later rounds. Subsequent rounds will have more slack as bots are damaged and require repair.
Ants and Beetles: 6' x 6' arena with a low wall (1" high) in one corner. Getting trapped behind or on the wall (10 second countdown) results in loss of battle. Floor is 11ga steel and magnets are allowed for ants and beetles (not plastic ants).
