Robot Ruckus returns to Orlando Maker Faire 2019 on November 9th & 10th!
Insect battles will be run in an 8x8 arena, which has a non-ferrous floor with a pit in one corner. Bigger bots will be run in an 16x32 arena which has a steel floor.
Everything up to 15lbs will be full contact, and the 30s and 250s will be "sportsman" style.
Entry fees are $15 for insects, $20 for 15lb, and $30 for 250 Sportsman.
Weekend Maker Faire passes are given to each team member. This is done via the "Call for Makers!" on the Orlando Maker Faire website
. This step MUST be done to receive passes for MFO!
Only one exhibit is needed per team, not one per robot. On that exhibit, feel free to post pictures of all the bots you're bringing!
Event will be run in conjunction with Maker Faire Orlando (http://www.makerfaireorlando.com/)
being held at the Central Florida Fairgrounds located at
4603 West Colonial Drive
Orlando, Florida 32808
Early bird check-in will begin on Friday, November 8th, with day-of check-in beginning Saturday morning. Any volunteers to help setup the arenas on the days before, or any of the days after the event would be greatly appreciated!
Battles will begin at 10:00 am and continue until 5:00 pm.
We will be using a modified SPARC (http://sparc.tools/) ruleset which can be read here: How to Compete at Robot Ruckus
