Each participant is responsible for the risks related to participation in the contest. It should be stated that organizers provide public liability insurance, but one should take into consideration any other risks that are not covered with the insurance policy. Our recommendation is to make provisions for health and accident insurance as well as insurance against theft abroad. It would be also reasonable to obtain insurance against disease and accidents that can require hospitalizing in a foreign country and/or medical repatriation. As for the theft, one should better obtain full insurance of the belongings in conformity with their price in consultation with your insurance company.
In no case do organizers take responsibility of transportation problems for teams' robot. Though organizers provide help in organizing such transportation.[ ! ] When transporting your robot as luggage in a plane we recommend putting it in a firm case which will prevent any kind of physical damage upon hits and possible inaccurate handling.
[ ! ] Please note, that if you consider getting your robot in cabin as hand luggage, it might be not accepted by all companies. Check with your flight operator in advance for such an option.
The contest is held at the period, when gnats and mosquitoes are quite in abundance in Astrakhan. Repellents are quite a good protective means against them. Repellents are produced in the form of lotion, cream, spray etc.; Baikal, Lesnoy, Komare, Mosquitall are most efficient among them found in Russia.
Fumigators (electric evaporators) are good for mosquitoes neutralization inside buildings. They are used in combination with gels, liquids or plates containing insecticide, fatal for mosquitoes.[ ! ] Because of the mosquito problem we even had to move the dates for better competition conditions. Please, make sure you bring a suitable protective means with you.
