WAR at the Hobby Expo
Western Allied Robotics next competition is Feb 9th at the Monroe fairgrounds. We are putting on an event at the NW Model Hobby Expo. We decided to add 30lb robots this time around. We are excluding spinning-weapon robots for now because we aren't sure we'll have time to upgrade the arena to contain them in time for the event. Hopefully we can attract a few more non-local builders to come and play. There aren't too many opportunities for bot-action these days. Some of the regular clubs aren't putting on as many events. Hopefully we have a good turnout. Registration is currently open at the BuildersDB.
I drove our #2 ranked 3lb
Hurty Gurty to victory in the Beetleweight class! With this
victory it may retake the #1 position. I'm looking forward to seeing
some video. It's first fight against
Altitude had some of the biggest Beetleweight hits I've seen. It
wasn't quite as exciting as last years
fight vs. Gutter Monkey
but Wow! Fun!
