Competition Description:
Rumble in the North - Robot Demolition Derby Comes to St. Albans

Itís a demolition derby with robots, and itís coming to St. Albans! Raiders Robot Rumble is a clashing tournament to St. Albans . Participants build robots and then fight to the death in the arena for honor, glory and bragging rights. If you love to watch Battlebots or Robot Wars, grew up on Transformers, or simply like destroying things, this may be for you.

Building your combat robot is the first challenge. Saws or spinners, hammer or axe - will your bot push opponents into pits or spinning sawblades, or perhaps flip its opponents, or will it simply bash away?

Once built, robots face the Darwinian challenge of a battle arena, fighting another robot to see whose design or strategy is the best. A battle can last from thirty seconds to three minutes or more, as the robots bash and flail away at each other until one robot succumbs. Not only do the robots The victorious robot survives to face another challenger, often after a quick stop in the pit for some emergency repairs. The fortunate loser can take his robot home, while the unlucky sweep up the broken parts.

Raiders Robot Rumble has been running local matches at The Frozen Ogre in downtown St. Albans for the last 2 years. On September 14th, local challengers will be able to match themselves against robots from other parts of New England at Rumble in the North, the first regional tournament in St. Albans. Last minute roboteers are welcome, as are those who simply want to watch.
