  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. In the pits, 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.
  • The pits will be outdoors. As such, please bring tables, chairs, sun canopies, sun screen, etc.  Each teams pit will be located at least one car parking space from all others (8 feet)
  • If you want power at your pit space, please bring an extension cord.
  • The entry fee is to be paid in cash.

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.

Updates: -  added sportman beetles and fairyweights upon popular request.
