Freeside Atlanta will be hosting the inaugural Freeside Robot Street Fight.
Robots ranging from 150g to 3lbs will be fighting in an enclosed arena with two push-outs and a hazard that is located along one of the arena walls. The arena used to be the Robot Battles insect arena prior to the current one being built and is being cleaned up and brought back up to spec for combat use.
12 and 30lb robots will be fighting it out in the lot behind Freeside using rules similar to the 12 and 30lb classes at Dragon Con Robot Battles. The combat area will be clearly marked and you lose by exiting the area. Matches will be best of 3.

There is a $10 suggested donation to Freeside if you're planning to attend. Pizza and soda will be available for participants.
Rules and procedures are attached to this post.
In the lead up to this event I'll also be teaching a class called "Introduction to Combat Robot Building: Micro Bots" focused on building bots for the 1 and 3lb classes.

Here's a shot of the arena for the small bots. Working on upgrading the pits at the moment. If all goes to plan the arena should be ready to go by this weekend.
The arena's cleaned up and ready to go. More details/photos can be seen here: http://nearchaos.net/bringing-an-arena-out-of-retirement/
