Attention to all educational teams:

The Bloomsburg area is currently building an Octagon Arena that will be hosting a competition later this spring. The arena will be larger than the one at this past NRL national event in Indy. Any educational team is welcome to participate. The more the better! Please mark your calendars and let em know if there is interest in this event. We have at least six totally new teams in this area that that will be making up the "new team" bracket... others from outside the area can join these teams.

We are tentatively planning an April 27th competition in downtown Bloomsburg as part of their annual street fair. The venue is indoors ( www.mooseexchange.org), but right on the main street so teams could enjoy the food and festivities of the event. In addition, the complex has a bowling alley on the lower level which could be fun for teams waiting to compete or to relax after getting eliminated.



We are gearing this event to first year teams and those teams that are rather inexperienced. In addition, we are also looking to have an advance bracket open to any teams willing to travel. We are going to formally invite all the RoboBots, SWPA BotsIQ, XtremeBots (Dayton, OH) and Cleveland teams that would like to make the trip east, they will be evaluated and put in a bracket that best fit their teams experience level. I'm hoping to have 20+ teams for this event.



Our arena will officially begin construction next week. We are currently waiting for the metal to arrive to begin the fabrication process. I'm excited to see this thing take shape!

If your "team" is educational age and you actually attend a high school or college, sure this competition is for you too. We are not gearing this for adults since they have their own weight class at most tournaments "Hobby Weight".

Depending on the number of registered robots, we might be hosting a NERC type event with robots 1lbs to Hobby weigh robots. This will be decided next month at some point.

Thanks for the current interest. Please spread the word to others. As mentioned before, the more entries we get the more fun this is going to be!
