All Members,

Please mark your calendars for mid-Summer RC Combat in Peoria!!  August 8!!

We're trying to setup a small Beetleweight RC Combat competition for the Ignite Peoria event being held on August 8.  A local middle school has helped a few of the students create RC combat robots last year, and they're looking for a time and place to compete.  We think the MakerFest associated with Ignite Peoria would be a great place to do an exhibition tournament with the students.

However, we're short a few bots.  The students will only have 2-4 bots, which won't make for a long tournament.  We would like some of our regular competitors from the Bot Brawl to join in the melee and help the kids have some fun.

If you're interested, please let me know.  We have no formal registration system and we'll have no entry fee.  Prizes will be awarded for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd places from our leftover Bot Brawl stock.  If we don't get at least 6 competitors (including the students), we'll likely keep the combat arena packed away for next year.

We're also looking at changing the Bot Brawl date to coincide with Ignite Peoria, so this would be a chance to get in on the first action!
