For fairies and printed ants, we will be using an 8x8 arena with a wooden floor and with multiple pits/traps.  TPU is allowed for printed ants, as well as any other conventional printed material.  No bullitt material or CNC parts allowed. No flame bots allowed. If you have questions, please contact Jason Rogers. For ants and beetles we have a 6x6x4 arena made from 1/2in polycarbonate and additional ½ in x12in  poly toe board with seamless steel floor. We have a ventilator system built into the area to push any fumes outside in the event of a fire. Unlimited magnets are allowed.

Doors will open at 8am central, competition will start at 10 am central.

We will have a food truck on site, but coolers are welcomed. Please bring extra power strips if needed.
