Event Description

This event is outdoors in May in Houston in a parking lot outside of Electronic Parts Outlet. If you want shade and a table, bring your own. There is power now thanks to the store. This event is free to come spectate. We just ask that you visit Electronic Parts Outlet while you are there.

If you are competing, try to show up to the parking lot between 9 AM and 10 AM. Be through safety by 11:30 AM. To pass safety, your bot needs to stop moving when the transmitter is turned off. If your bot doesn't failsafe, ask how to make it work at least two weeks out. You can test your failsafe with just your electronics. This and weight are the things that might stop you from competing. Online registration ends at 5 PM on Friday. You can register onsite on Saturday morning, but if you are late, we will not know to wait for you.  

Entry fees are probably going to be 150 gram: $10, 1lb: $20, and 3lb: $40.

I'll fill in more information later.

Send me an email if you have any questions. There is a 150 gram robot building workshops at Electronic Parts Outlet scheduled for 2-Apr if you want to build a bot but are unsure how.
