Robowars Robotronica -Nationals 2017 - Brisbane August 19/20

So getting very close and I wanted to confirm a few details.

30lb Sportsman Class
Rules: http://www.robowars.com.au/wp-content/uploads/2016/07/SPARC_RobowarsRules_v1.0.pdf

Event Info: http://www.robowars.com.au/2017/07/04/robowars-nationals-2017/

When
So as you have seen from the title the date has been locked in for a while August 19/20th.
19th August will run 10am - 6pm
20th August will run 9am - 4pm

Where
The event will be held at 2 George St, Brisbane. Setup is likely to consist of a big tiered seating arrangement with big screens of robot action. Seating 300-400 people. May also be better lighting, sound & effects but you will just have to find out when you walk your robot into the arena on the day.

Format
There will be 3 preliminary Featherweight rounds and 1 Sportsman round on Day 1.
Day 2 will be Featherweight Finals + 2 Rounds of sportsman.
How many fights of course will be dictated by the number of robots we have. However you should prepare for at least 3 fights win/lose over the two days.

Prizes
All TBC however Makersmuse & BotBitz have already offered to donate prizes. More details to come.

Get building

Steve

5.1.5. Jumping and hopping may be allowed at some events, contact the event
organizer if you’re intending on using this as a method of locomotion.


Will jumping and hopping be allowed in the open featherweight class at the nationals? The sportsman class?

I have no issue with hopping. I think it would classify as a novel form of locomotion for weight bonus. However you need to be able to show controlled motion. If I say move from one corner to another and it flops all over the place its not controlled motion.

Cool. My plans have moved on from jumper to full walker, but probably won't get it done for nationals.

Can we do flame at the nationals? I'd consider fitting out Flamin Heck to compete in the featherweight division if so.
