The 2011 Central Illinois Bot Brawl will take place on April 2nd at the LakeView Museum in Peoria, IL. Along with an assortment of combat, sumo, and line competitions, we'd also like to invite Mech Warfare competitors to come put their creations to the test either with exhibition matches or a full tournament if enough builders are able to attend.

Mech Warfare robots will not be required to pre-register and will not be charged a fee but we would appreciate advanced notice if you plan to attend so we can plan accordingly.

Unfortunately we are still pretty limited on space so will need to host battles in our 8' X 8' X 2' combat arena. Check out the attached video from last year's event to see the arena:

We hope to see you and your robot in April!

Just a reminder to everyone, the 2011 Central Illinois Bot Brawl is now only 2 months away! Let us know if you plan to bring your Mech so we can get an estimate of how many competitors to expect. As of now we're only planning to host Mech Warfare exhibition matches but if we get enough builders to come we could put together match brackets and hold a true competition.

Either way you always have the option of entering your Mech in our "Best In Show" competition and can also purchase raffle tickets to increase your chances of winning an exciting prize! Here's a list of the available prizes we've collected so far thanks to the generous support of our sponsors:

The 2011 Central Illinois Bot Brawl was a huge success thanks to the support of our competitors, sponsors, and volunteers! The Mech Warfare demos were very popular and we had some excellent Mechs participate this year including the updated Giger! Here are some of the highlights:
