WAPUR Coopertition Event Guide
This year the event will be held at the UM Sports Coliseum:
721 South Fifth Avenue
Ann Arbor, Michigan, 48104
The building is on the corner of Hill Street and 5th Avenue. Tons of parking is available on the Northside of the building and is open and free on Sunday. The entrance is in the middle of the building on the North Side facing the parking lot. There is also a garage door on the southeast corner of the building on Hill Street for loading and unloading. You can unload from Hill street, or park in the parking lot just east of the garage door off Hill street. Pits open at 9 am Sunday.
Bleacher space is somewhat limited, so please don’t leave stuff in the bleachers during the event. There will be plenty of chairs and tables available in addition to the pits.
The pit area is spacious and each team will have plenty of space (at least 10×10) and a powerstrip. We do discourage large pit structures.
Safety & Security
We do expect WAPUR participants to bring and wear safety glasses within the parts of the pit area designated for working on robots. If you invite a guest to take a closer look inside your team’s pit area only do so after providing safety glasses. Because the pits are not in a separate room, we won’t be able to enforce a safety glasses checkpoint like at a major comp, so please take responsibility for your team wearing safety glasses when in their pit.
Lunch will be provided by the library. To keep the program rolling lunch will be 30 minutes. Encourage students to rotate roles or get food between matches if needed. You’re welcome to bring snacks if you’d like, but there is no vending onsite or shops immediately nearby.
Representatives from all teams are expected to assist with field tear-down at the end of the day.
