PostSubject: What happened? Help me remember.   Wed Jul 04, 2012 6:05 pm

Long ago, before the Battlebox arena was made, I attended a thing at the Long Beach Pyramid. Actually I think it was in the parking garage somewhere. It must have been 1998 or before. Just a hand full of folks including myself sat in metal folding chairs around a very low barrier watching robots battle. No glass wall, nothing to stop you from resting your feet on the barrier between you and the robots. I only remember one robot. It might have been a Christian Carlburg (sp?) creation. It was purple and had two of what looked like go kart wheels and and it dragged a hammer/pick axe that would fly over and slam down when the robot would stop abruptly.

I've looked on the internet for info on what I saw and when I saw it, with no joy. I'm pretty sure the name Battlebots was used somehow. There might have been a autonomous robot competition attached to it where little robots would try to find their way through a maze, but I might be wrong about that.

So, can anyone clue me as to when I saw what I remember? Were anyone of you folks there with me? If you were can you recall and recount any other details of that day?

And Hi! Pleased to be here. Just a fan, not a builder. I was at the Battlebots thing in Las Vegas in 1999 too. Got the t shirt.

Unfortunately most of the users here are relative newcomers, so I'm not sure if we'll be able to help.

You may have better luck on the Robot Fighting League forum, where there are more veteran builders:

or if you use Facebook, PM me on here and I can invite you to our group.

The robot you remember is probably Toe-Crusher
