    It is time for the next BotFest event!

    Location
    St. Lukes Church
    Poulton
    Wallasey
    CH44 3BD

    Date
    25th April 2020

    Time
    11:00 - 17:00

    This time, we are planning to split the robots off into 8 round robin heats if there is sufficient numbers with the top robot of that heat going through the quarter-finals and then a straight elimination from there. If there isn't enough robots to justify 8 heats, we'll revert back to the 4 heat system with the top two going through as normal. As always, there will be a all robot rumble as well.

    This is primarily an Antweight event but if you wish to do a static display of your heavier class robots, please feel free to bring them with cradles and sharps protection where needed (there will be a dedicated space for Featherweights and heavier). We are also open to running Fleaweights and Nanoweights if anyone brings them. As before, we are running a slightly modified variant of the AWS ruleset (http://robotwars101.org/ants/rules.htm), those being:

    2.a: All weight limits have a 5% variance as below. Robots that exceed the AWS weight limit but are within the BotFest limit will have a note applied to the technical check sheet but pass in this instance.
    Antweight: 157.5g (Roller) / 236.25g (Walker)
    Fleaweight: 78.75g (Roller) / 118.65g (Walker)
    Nanoweight: 26.25g (Roller) / 39.9g (Walker)

    2.b: All size limits have a 5% variance, so the dimension cubed that your robot must into is below. Robots that exceed the AWS weight limit but are within the BotFest limit will have a note applied to the technical check sheet but pass in this instance.
    Antweight: 106.68mm
    Fleaweight: 80.01mm
    Nanoweight: 63mm

    4.a: All heat matches will last 2 minutes. All other matches (except the All Robot Rumble and Side events) will last 3 minutes. The All Robot Rumble will last until one robot remains mobile. Side event runtime are determined on the day.

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

    Event signup is here: http://antlog.garya.org.uk/event/26

    Hope to see you there!

    Will there be a deadline for signups? I may see if I can get an antweight together for this!

    Nope, no deadline really. Signups are open up until the event starts.

    We'll see closer to the time. Had a bit of a setback here which means I can't work on it this weekend. It'll happen.
