CROK: Creek County Melee

CROK - Combat Robotics of Oklahoma - is organizing our event at the Creek County Fairgrounds to have some fun and to enhance interest in the sport. Join Us!

OVERVIEW

CROK: Creek County Melee

General:

Only a few days to go before Combat Robotics Oklahoma (CROK)’s: Creek County Melee. Do you know where your bots are at?
We may still have openings in the Fairyweight and Beetleweight classes, with time to build something and throw it in the arena.

Also, I am still looking for some volunteers to help setup and/or judge matches. Judges get the best seat in the house!

Combat Robotics Oklahoma (CROK) Event Details:

Tables and chairs are provided by the venue. Bathrooms are onsite. You are welcome to bring food and beverages for lunch, just no eating in the pits and no alcoholic beverages. There are a few fast-food restaurants 10 minutes away, so keep that in mind if you leave to get something to eat between matches.

Registration:

March 18, 2021 – May 15, 2021

Due to popular demand, I have moved around some of the registration spots for the weight classes at the upcoming Combat Robotics Oklahoma (CROK) event.

Organizer’s Note:

  • I have reduced the number of Fairyweight spots to 8, currently 3 are taken. I have also changed the entry fee for fairys to just $10.
  • I have increased the number of Antweight spots to 24, 18 are currently taken. This seems to be our most popular class and I hate turning away new builders if I can help it, hence the reshuffling.
  • No changes for the Beetleweights, 7 of 16 spots are currently taken.

If you are planning to build a bot and compete, please go ahead and sign up to reserve your spot. Once these spots are full, any additional registrations will be waitlisted. Registered robots have priority over waitlisted robots on event day. There is no guarantee that a waitlisted robot will be able to fight in the tournament on the day of the event.
