    Food: Some snacks provided but bring your own lunch, there's also a student union shop that *should* be open 11am-10pm... but nothing else in the vicinity so don't rely on it!

    ---- Sign Up Info ----
    Suggested £5 donation per team, can be cash/card on the day or paypal: bbb.gd/donate
    Your team are welcome to enter 2 robots that you have built, but your secondary entry may not be able to compete in the main competition due to people signing up after you with their primary robot.
    We want to have as many people involved as we can. Secondary entries that do not get a guaranteed slot are welcomed at the event in case of dropouts and also for whiteboard fights if there's time.

    ---- Rules & Safety ----
    - Beetleweight, 1500g limit with 2% allowance to allow for error in scales
    - No size limit.
    - All robots must have a removable link, an independent (not on your BEC or Receiver!) power light and a fuse rated below the burst rating of the LiPo.
    - All robots with a fast moving weapon must have a locking bar. If you are unsure if your robot fits this criteria, please ask!
    - All sharp objects must have appropriate covers outside the arena
    - All robots must have a cradle keeping all wheels and weapons from touching the table.
    - All robots must failsafe within 10 seconds of losing signal.
    - No heat, fire, glue, liquid or intentional entanglement weapons.
    - If you feel there is a questionable element of your robot as per these rules, please ask the event organisers (Joe Brown or Craig Croucher) before arrival to ensure you do not compromise rules.
    - Tech Check will be completed as per the FRA Check Sheet - http://www.fightingrobots.co.uk/documents/Technical-Check-Sheet.pdf
    - Tech Check will run from 11am for 1 hour only. Any robot that is not Tech Checked by this time will not be allowed to fight and will be withdrawn.

    ---- Proof of Mobility ----
    Like with Bugglebots and the Euros we'll be requiring proof of mobility two weeks before the event (by the end of Sunday 10th February) - this is just a video showing your robot can move. This is required for primary and secondary bots.
    This is to help us be able to organise the event, plan around drop outs and give everyone a fair chance. We're monitoring sign ups to organise the best event we can and will close the sign ups when we reach venue capacity, however will re-open if we get drop outs (pre 10th feb)
    Please pm facebook.com/bristolbotbuilders or email bristolbotbuilders@gmail.com with your proof. Robots that competed at Bugglebots or the Euros and are not significantly different in appearance do not need to submit proof.
