I`ll make a draft set of rules but basically if its allowed at AWS then its probably allowed in this, so tethered projectiles etc.

Water in your electrics will probably kill your bot, a bit like a spinner blade going through them, just a hazard to design against.

Please see the updated timetable in the first post for this Saturday, signups will now stay open for the morning and we’ll run the main tournament in the afternoon.
This is to allow more time to travel with the weather as it is.

Re: Ant Freeze 6 - 2/2/19 - Details & Signup

According to the met office there is a chance of snow for the weekend.
It looks fine for Hinckley and there’s no plans to cancel the event.
If you want to text me before you leave then I will confirm yes or no, otherwise assume it is on until further notice.
