Compete at Robot Ruckus 2021!
Insect battles will be run in an 8'x8' arena, which has a non-ferrous floor with a pit in one corner. Bigger bots will be run in an 16'x32' arena which has a steel floor. Everything up to 15lbs will be full contact, and the 30s and 250s will be "sportsman" style. Insect weightclasses will be double-elimination, and 15s, 30s, and 250s will be a pools fight format.

Entry fees are $20 for insects and 15lb, $30 for 30lb, and $50 for 250lb Sportsman. Due to time and space constraints, a team may only enter robots into either the insect weightclasses or the bigger weightclasses. You may not compete in both arenas. Weekend Maker Faire Orlando passes will be given to each team member. We will email you to complete the Maker Faire Orlando registration which will be required to get event credentials. This step MUST be done to receive passes for Maker Faire Orlando! The process is being simplified for 2021, and we will email details when they are available.
Robot Ruckus will be run in conjunction with Maker Faire Orlando being held at the Central Florida Fairgrounds located at:
4603 West Colonial Drive
Orlando, Florida 32808
Check in will be on Friday November 12th, with limited check-in Saturday morning. Volunteers to help setup/tear-down the arenas on the days before are greatly appreciated, as are volunteers to help keep the event running! Whether it be judging, robot wrangling, or crowd control, etc, any help that can be given is fantastic.
