1PM: Fairies/Ants Tournament begins
7PMish?: Fairies/Ants Tournament is done.
At some point on Friday, Beetle inspections will start once the main arena is assembled.
8AM-9:30AM: Safety Inspections.
At this point if you are not through safety, you will not compete. All matches have to be done at a reasonable time on Sunday.
10:00AM: Drivers Meeting. Attendance is MANDATORY. You must be present so that you understand the rules clearly. Details around unsticks, immobilized bots, etc will be covered. This is your time to ask any questions about the rules that you are unsure of.
11:00 AM-ish: First fights of the day. The first 8 matches will be announce the rest will go from there. Be sure to have your bots ready to go. By about 8PM or so, fighting will cease for the day.
10AM: First fights of the day will commence. Arrive anytime before 10AM to make sure you are ready to go if you are still in the tournament.
By 5PM fights should be all finished. There will be signups for grudge matches/rumbles and the "Official" rumbles.
Please stick around and help break down the arena!
First timer advice for Moto......even if you are not competing in ants get to the venue on the Friday afternoon/evening and then you can drive up to the entrance of the small arena (someone will no doubt post a map) and get you stuff dropped off. On Saturday you won’t be allowed to do this and it’s a long drag (with stairs?) etc. otherwise. Plus you can get through safety and maybe even give your bot a test or two.
Bring a comfortable fold up seat.
Get back in plenty of time in the morning, one day they will start on time!
If you have laptop with Wi-Fi you can use it to track who’s on next etc. don’t make them come hunting you when you should be ready!
