Dan mag de pit area wel een stuk groter dan bij voorgaande events :)
Hebben we voldoende vrijwilligers om het e.e.a. aan te sturen? fam/vrienden van deelnemers?

Nog even een paar vragen over het evenement:

-We moeten vóór de aanvang van het evenement aanwezig zijn. Op de website van FACTS staat dat de aanvang 10.00 uur is, maar "priority entry" is vanaf 09.00 uur. Hoe laat moeten we dan aanwezig zijn? Vóór 10.00 uur of vóór 09.00 uur?
-Parkeren/entree is gratis voor roboteers, is mij verteld. Hoe moeten we aantonen dat wij dat zijn? Krijgen we nog speciale vrijkaarten o.i.d. toegestuurd?
-Moeten we zelf een tafel meenemen, of wordt daar al voor gezorgd? (Dat we zelf stoelen mee moeten nemen wist ik al.)
Mvg,
Iestyn

Hello, roboteers,

The European championships organized by Dutch Robot Games (DRG) at FACTS is only a few weeks away! We are very excited about the competition and looking forward to welcoming you in Gent.

Here are a few things you need to know:

COMPETITION
The competition is on Saturday 29 and Sunday 30 September.

The doors of the expo open at 10:00 AM to the public. We ask everyone to arrive before 9:00 AM on both Saturday and Sunday. We will provide you with information about travel and parking in the week before the event. The competition draw will be on Saturday at 10:00 AM.

On Saturday there will be 5 rounds of fights.
On Sunday there will be 4 rounds of fights.

We will offer the possibility for some whiteboard fights as well.

COMPETITORS
The deadline to sign up is September 17th. We will inform you about the final competitor list at that time. (You can already see the current list via our Facebook event). We are not selecting competitors, so you are in!

The sign up is open until the competition is full, please feel free to forward the event to others that might be interested.

TECHNICAL CHECK / BUILD RULES
We will do tech checks until Saturday 10:30 AM. For the tech check/rules, we will follow the FRA standard. (http://www.fightingrobots.co.uk/content ... d-safety_1 ) You need to pass the tech check to compete. Please be prepared to do your tech check as soon as you arrive on Saturday.

FACTS
FACTS is a Comic-Con-like event and when you are not busy fighting or repairing your robot, you have free access to all parts of this event. Expect to see a lot of cosplay! (Of course, you can dress up as well if you like)

FMB STIPEND
This event is the European qualifier for the FMB World Cup. This means the top 2 featherweight robots will be selected for the FMB World Cup finals in Sanya early 2019. Because of this and the busy competition season, DRG and FMB will be providing a small stipend for each featherweight team (which you will receive after passing tech check).

BUILD UP AND BREAKING DOWN (YOUR HELP IS WELCOME!)
Dutch Robot Games runs on a small group of volunteers and we welcome all help in setting up this event. On Friday 28 September we will assemble the arena, this will start around 1:00 PM. You can also get your robot and tools inside the venue early and do your tech check on Friday.

On Sunday after 6:00 PM, we will disassemble the arena and clean up. It would be great if you can stick around and help, if we all work together it will be done in an hour.

WHERE
Flanders Expo
Maaltekouter 1
BE - 9051 GENT (Sint-Denijs-Westrem)
www.flandersexpo.be

We will send you more detailed info in the week before the event. If you have any questions about the competition before that time, feel free to contact us via info@dutchrobotgames.nl or send us a message via Facebook.

Best regards,

DRG
