This event will take COVID and social distancing into consideration. So we will have 2 race types. The first will be the head to head over a race course and the second will be the head to head capture the flag. Since COVID has wreaked havoc on our education plans and activities, teams may run any of the following as long as they are legal by the rules: student built drones (by the DIS rules), commercial inductrix or Jr. Racers according to the rules of DIS. It is not open to any other drones except those legal by the rules. A race will be planned later on in order to let students produce their drones for DIS and accumulate points. So this race is run what you brung so to speak except by the rules.
