Competition Description:
Maker Faire Miami has been been rescheduled to August 15-16th 2020!
As many (all?) of you may know, the Covid-19 pandemic has greatly impacted society and cause delays to all manner of activities. The maker faire is another such casualty, though one which we are fortunate can be rescheduled. We will be working with the organizers and hope that we can still put on this event in conjunction with the new dates but we will have to wait and see how the cards land to ensure there are no conflicts.
For now we'll be updating the event dates so everyone is aware.

Please check back nearer the event for more updates!

This event is FREE for all weight classes! This will be a 2 day event for Antweight (1lb) robots with CASH PRIZES on Sunday. All other weight classes will run as a 1 day event on Saturday, Additional prizes TBD.

Weekend Maker Faire passes are given to each team member. This is done via the "Call for Makers!" on the Maker Faire Miami website (https://miami.makerfaire.com/participate/exhibit-at-makerfaire-miami/). **This step MUST be done to receive passes for Maker Faire Miami!** Only one exhibit is required per team, unless you would like to see each robot listed individually on the Maker Faire Miami website. Additional attendees must purchase tickets to enter Maker Faire Miami.

Check-in will begin on Saturday morning. Competitors can arrive as early as 7:30am and MUST be ready to safety by 8:30AM (you risk forfeiting your first fight if you aren’t through safety before we start). Battles will begin at 10:00 am and continue until 5:00 pm.

The arena will be our local 6’ x 6’ with a push-out zone. We’ll be following the SPARC ruleset (http://sparc.tools/ under “SPARC Document Update”) with the following points of emphasis:
- No fire weapons
- Exposed batteries are automatic forfeits
- One postponement
- One unstick per fight (if you become unintentionally stuck)
- No entanglements
- ONE MATCH FINAL - Winner of the final takes first; there will not be a second finals fight if the winner bracket position loses.
- **HAVE FUN**

Please reach out to info@makemia.com with any questions.

Maker Faire Miami is a family-friendly event with lots to do for all ages! Invite family and friends to buy tickets to watch you battle and enjoy all the Maker Faire has to offer. https://miami.makerfaire.com/
