R-Team Robotics will be hosting the 2018 Tucson Mech Brawl, Saturday, December 15th, 2018 (may spill into Sunday as well). Its a low key event. We set up the arena in my garage (its a tight fit but we manage), hold a mini competition, try out any new rules, have a general good time, etc.. We'll be generally following the Robogames 2018 Ruleset.

There's an open invitation to anyone else out there with a Mech to join us as well for the Brawl. Tucson is generally nice in December. We can probably also come up with free room & board (for at least a few). If interested, post here or send me an email/message.

There's also a rumor going around, as has been mentioned elsewhere on the forums, that Robogames 2019 has been cancelled. We haven't been told (or seen) anything official yet on this, but tend to think it might be true. We're working on alternatives for 2019... if anyone has any ideas, please bring them up.

That sounds awesome! Maybe even enough to make a push for getting a working 'mech back ...

Sadly I haven't and don't forsee finishing my mech in time for December. :(

Gertlex,

We will probably do another Mech Brawl 2019 that you could shoot for. Also looking into another alternative to Robogames for 2019.

I'm not going to be able to make December, but would be up for coming in the spring if you pull together something!

I was just about to start working on my next design with Robogames in mind (nevermind that, I guess), so I also hope to have something ready in the spring. If not, I'll keep next December in mind.
