---- 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.
---- 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 Bristol Bot Builders or email firstname.lastname@example.org with your proof. Robots that competed at Bugglebots or the Euros and are not significantly different in appearance do not need to submit proof.
