PostSubject: Thunderdome!! is happening   Sat Jun 01, 2013 11:20 am

Hi everyone

We are going to be holding a monthly insect event in South Florida and it will be starting in mid July , this year!!

Initially we will be running all insect class robots, but our main focus will be on the Beetle class bots, in conjunction with the NEW push to build 3 pounders that is currently underway.

We are currently in the process of modifying a small battle arena. When done, it will be 8'x 8' x 4' high and will have a pair of slide up acces panels.

It will be open class, but once enough bots begin to show up, we will probably have 2 divisions, one for newbies , etc and one for pros and anyone who thinks that they can handle the heat!!

A small group of south Florida builders and educators have started a 'big push ' to try to dramatically increase the number of beetle weight bots in Miami and the surrounding area.

Initially, we will probably be holding the events on Friday afternoon/evenings at Miami Lakes Educational Center, but that could change to a Saturday event so as to accomodate more people and try to draw the out of towners.

There will be a small fee to enter bots, probably between $10 and $20. This will be to cover arena expenses. We hope to build a multi-media octagon arena in the not to distant future.

We will also be moving the event around the South Florida area , in that we have interest from various schools, etc to hold an event at their location.

Stay tuned for more details and get those little bots tuned up!!

THUNDERDOME is coming soon!!
