CIRC Bot Brawl Recap
On March 6th, 2010 SA and I attended the CIRC Bot Brawl event in Peoria Illinois.
The event was for competitions sponsored by the CIRC group. They had light weight combat robots (1-3 lb I believe), line following, sumo and other typical robot competitions. Between CIRC events Mech Warefare demos were held to gain interest in the competition.
Four mechs were in attendance. Two quads (SA and Issy) along with two Lynxmotion Biped BRAT based mechs. Unfortunately only the two quad mechs were fully functional and able to run a few demo skirmishes. One Biped BRAT was experiencing some electrical interference issues between his own electronics while the other was unable to keep balanced with all the required Mech Warfare gear attached.
