As the current state of the spread of COVID is fluctuating and there is the very real possibility that the State of Maryland, or Anne Arundel County, may impose restrictions on gatherings, the event is subject to cancellation. As such, no fees will be collected in advance. Please be prepared to pay at the door.

In order to comply with the current  COVID rules in Maryland, Anne Arundel County and the venues rules, at the time of this posting (September 21, 2021), please review the following..

  1. Wear your mask indoors.
  2. Stay 6 feet apart
  3. 30 person maximum occupancy in the building, and no limit outside per UAS/Anne Arundel County rules
  4. Leave bathroom doors open so people can tell if they are occupied.
  5. Make sure to fill out the COVID tracing/UAS Waiver form.

And now on with the important stuff...

  1. The least dangerous robot goes in the box first. The most dangerous in the box last.
  2. The most dangerous bot comes out first, if at all possible. Then the least dangerous bot.
  3. If a battery becomes exposed, the match is over. This is a safety thing.
  4. Keep you bots turned off, weapons safeties on and the wheels off the ground. Once more, a safety thing.
  5. We will have someone call next match, and on deck match. We will also try to post the current brackets and next fight within the Discord event channel. We have 20 minutes between matches for any one bot, so towards the end, we will likely be having grudge matches to fill time.
  6. No late hits. If the other bot is disabled, ask before you hit them again. Basically be polite.
  7. Have fun, play safe.

Unall{0}cated Space, the venue, will have cold water, and Gatorade available for the suggested donation of $1 per bottle. Any donation to help the venue is greatly appreciated, and will make holding events there easier in the future.
