Event Description

This event is outdoors in March 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. Weather is generally good temperatures, but it might be rainy.

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.  

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

There is no entry fee for spectators. We ask that they visit the store. I'll fill in more information later.

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