Small Bots of Mass Destruction is back @ The Martin County Fairgrounds starting on Saturday February 10th 2018... This two-day event hosted by KurTrox along with Treasure Coast Makerspace presents our 5th combat robot tournament. This EPIC event takes place at the Martin County Fairgrounds. Not only do you get to fight robots, but play on fair rides, see neat exhibits, and eat junk food!!
Trophies and great (Cash) prizes for the top 2 in each class, Special awards for the rumble winners, best engineered robot, coolest robot, best driver, sportsmanship award, highest hit, and more!
RULES & PROCEDURES:
SBoMD uses a modified SPARC ruleset. Please visit our brand new SmallBots.US website for a detailed ruleset. Email event operator Abra Durjan for any questions regarding the rules. FLAMETHROWERS ARE ALLOWED!!!! and ENCOURAGED!
Each team is allowed a maximum of three robots per weight class. Each driver is only allowed to drive one robot per weight class. (Example: One team may enter 2 robots in the Beetleweight class, as long as there are two separate dedicated drivers for each robot). This helps us mitigate delays from one driver with too many robots to repair later in the day.
During the competition it is imperative that you stay close by, within announcers voice, at all times. We dont want anyone to forfeit because it is their turn to compete and they cannot be found. We will have a break for lunch, but bring snacks (or a deep wallet) if you get hungry often.
The Martin County Fairgrounds are located on 2616 SE Dixie Hwy, Stuart, FL 34996. We will be located outdoors with no AC in a BIG shiny Tented area. Invite your friends and family to watch the action live or on our Livestream!!!!
This is a 2 day event but there are hotels and AirBnB rentals nearby. Anyone who wants to plan a vacay around this date can use their preferred choice to rent. We donít have any deals this time. But we might be able to get awesome prices on a hotel in the near future.

BIG Cash Prizes!! Apparently cash prizes are a hit so we keep it up. We will also be giving away prizes and money to rumbles winners. Cash Prizes are determined by the number of entrants per category.
POSSIBLY UPGRADED!!! We are trying super hard to make this an 8 ft x 16 ft rectangle, 4 ft tall walls, steel framed with 2PCS 1/4" polycarbonate walls and 1.5" plywood roof. Steel bumpers. Steel floor. 1 expandable pit
Pits will have a test box for all spinups / power on scenarios. DO NOT TURN YOUR ROBOT ON UNLESS ITS IN A HAPPY PLACE!! (arena or pit box) Yes the Unicorns and Rainbows were a hit.
The pit area is closed off from the general public, but can be observed from the sidelines. Registered builders who enter the pit area must sign a release of liability. Everyone entering the pit area must sign one when your team arrives at the check-in table. All competitors or crew members under age 18 also must have their waiver signed by a parent or legal guardian.
