BotFest pilot (29th July 2018)

Post by Ocracoke » Mon May 14, 2018 11:05 am

Hi everyone!

After running a social on Merseyside a few months ago, myself and a friend have decided to start running a series of events, starting with the Ants and then hopefully including the Beetles later on (time/space/money permitting). To work out the format of how we would like to run this (and, of course, to have a competition as well at the same time ;) ), we are running a pilot of this.

Signup closes on the 31st of May 2018 at 23:59 and we are looking to run the event on the 29th of July 2018. Where the event is being held at is a bit up in the air at the moment but we looking at The Belvidere Community Centre in Wallasey, Wirral (https://www.facebook.com/thebelviderecommunitycentre/) or the Inspire Coffee Bar, again in Wallasey (https://en-gb.facebook.com/InSpireCoffeeBar/). We are provisionally saying 2 - 6pm but depending on which venue we get, we may end up moving this to 4 - 9pm, this will be confirmed this week with any degree of luck.

Both are easily accessible via the M53, by train there is a walk of about 20 minutes and there are also local bus routes as well.

Signup form: http://teamkaizen.ocracoke.org.uk/botfest.php

We'll be following a slightly modified set of AWS rules, the variations include:
  • Weight variance is 5% but we do expect roboteers to adhere to the 150g rule where possible.
  • A team may enter up to a maximum of 3 robots of either a Roller or a Walker type.
  • A maximum of three team members is permitted.
Hope to see you there!

We finally managed to secure a venue and a time. The event will be held on the 29th of July between 2pm - 8pm at the following location:

St. Lukes Church
Poulton
Wallasey
CH44 3BD

With all the hold ups with getting this venue, I've extended the signup cutoff date to the 30th of June at 23:59. Hope to see you there!
