Unfortunately the hobby show event has been pushed to Oct 30-31. This is normally the time of our Robothon event and since the dates for that haven’t been fixed yet we are going to hold off on this event.
For those of you that have paid the registration fee/donation, I’ll send along refunds.
This is Western Allied Robotics annual Hobby Expo Event.
The event is free to compete in but the Hobby Expo will charge an admittance fee for everyone. Parking is free and there will be food trucks on site.
Currently Washington State allows events at their Fairground we need to be in Stage 4 for what is allowed related to Covid. We don't know what things will be like in May be we are hoping that we can have the event. It is also too early for us to document what COVID restrictions will be in place. If the event happens we will communicate what the show will be doing and what Western Allied Robotics will be doing to minimize risks around COVID.
This is a 2 day event with different robot classes running on each day.
|Saturday May 22nd||Sunday May23rd|
The rules can be found here... along with the special Plastic Antweight rules and the Sportsman Class rules in section 4.2 of the SPARC ruleset.
- 1 bot per driver per weightclass: For the initial registration each driver will be allowed 1 bot per weight class in order to insure that there is room for new competitors. If registration doesn't reach capacity drivers can bring additional bots. Go ahead and register all of your bots. I'll put the extra bots on the wait-list and update things as we get closer to the event.
- Forefiting aginst yourself: If a team has two robots that are scheduled to compete the bots must fight each other so you'll need a radio for each robot. If you don't want them to fight each other then the winner will be decided by a coin toss. If a bot truely cannot continue due to damage it will be allowed to forefit at the event organizers descretion.
- Waitlist: If registration for a weightclass is full or if you have more than 1 bot-per-driver in a weightclass, you should add yourself to the waitlist. We typically get a fair amount of churn with registration so there is a good chance you will be moved over to the competition list. The waitlist is first-come-first-served.
As with all WAR events, we will have our double elimination format with a single elimination final. If a weight class has 5 or fewer robots we will do a round-robin.
|Saturday May 22nd|

|Sunday May 23rd|
|10:30am - 2:00pm||Robot fighting!|

We have a suggested donation of $20 per bot to help cover our costs. WAR events are Free for builders but we do have storage, arena maintenance and other event related expenses. All of the money we collect goes to the Seattle Robotics Association which is a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit. Please donate if you can but donating is not a requirement to compete.
If you have any questions please contact us.
