This is the third round of the 2017-2018 school drone competition. Note this is only for schools, not adults!
This event's theme is "Warrior Face Off".
The year is 833x (2099 in hex). A catastrophic flare triggered mutations in creatures close to the sun. With this newfound power the mutants banded together forming Imperium X with the sole intent to rule the galaxy. But one thing stands in the evil Imperium’s way; the Federation. The Federation has organized Drone Clan Warriors to defeat Imperium X and restore order to the galaxy.
The battlefield (course) will have engagements (obstacles) that pit the Federation (school teams) weakening the Imperium (bad guys).
The host school will publish a sketch of the proposed course two weeks prior so schools can practice a similar course.
The participating schools can offer engagements for inclusion to the course at least three weeks prior.
There are two classes of competition:
___ Varsity (challenging course)
___ Junior Varsity (beginner course).
