Botfest 2 (23rd March 2019)

Post by Ocracoke » Mon Jan 07, 2019 10:52 pm

Hey Everyone!

After a bit of a wait (apologies :P), I am pleased to announce BotFest will be making a return for 2019!

Following on from the pilot, we are sticking with the Church so this event will be running on the 23rd of March at the following location from 11:00 - 17:00.

St. Lukes Church
Poulton
Wallasey
CH44 3BD

The church is easily accessible via the M53, by train there is a walk of about 10-15 minutes and there are also local bus routes as well. Refreshments are available from the attached cafe to the church or from the local vicinity (easily within a 10 minute walk).

Like last time, we'll be running a set of 4 heats, quarter finals, semi finals and a grand final. We'll also be having a all robot rumble at the end and if folks want to organise a whiteboard whilst there, there will be one available plus a couple of games if we get time.

This is an Antweight event but if you wish to do a static display your heavier class robots, please feel free to bring them with cradles. As before, we are running a slightly modified variant of the AWS ruleset (http://robotwars101.org/ants/rules.htm), those being:

2.a: Weight limits have a 2% variance, so the maximum permitted weight for a Antweight roller is 153g and for a Antweight walker is 229.5g. Robots that exceed the AWS weight limit but are within the variance will have a note applied to the technical check sheet but pass in this instance.

2.b: Size limits have a 5% variance, so the maximum size for a particular dimension for a Antweight is 106.68mm. Robots that exceed the AWS size limit but are within variance will have a note applied to the technical check sheet but pass in this instance.

5.g A team is permitted to enter up to 3 robots of either a roller or walker.

Signup is available on Antlog: http://antlog.garya.org.uk/event/17

Hope to see you there!

I've entered Fermented Melon and Sprouting Potato, but I'll prolly switch out S.Potato for my planned cluster; Lemon & Slime. It depends on me getting my 3D printer unjammed (I bloomin hope I can!)
