Hey, I'm coming out from Calgary for my first robot combat in the beginner antweight category, and I hope this is the right place to drop a couple of questions!

Do I need to snag Saskatoon Expo tickets on top of the registration for Kilobots XXXIV?

Any good recommendations for a cheap place to stay for 2 nights in or around Saskatoon?

Cheers!

You get expo passes as part of your registration, unless you're bringing extra people? How many people are you going with?

I'm from Edmonton, and last year I stayed at the Super 8 near downtown. It wasn't hard to find, and it's all major roads from there to the expo.

Thanks Brendan (Guava) for replying to Brian.  For some reason I wasn't signed up for reply notifications and didn't see it.

Kilobots XXXIV is a wrap!
Congratulations everyone on another successful event! The Sask Expo marked their attendance at just over 15300 people, and going by the mass of never ending people surrounding the Kilobots arena, I’d say most of them stopped by to watch at least a few fights!

Watch the Past Events page for fight videos to start going up, and watch Sasktel Max Local On Demand (Saskatoon) for the event to be televised soon!
You can re-watch the live stream for a limited time here: https://www.twitch.tv/fingertechrobotics/profile

If you saw the event and would like to build a robot, Saskatoon TechWorks is holding a workshop where you can build a Viper kit!
Two dates are available: Oct 1 and Oct 8.
Sign up here: https://www.picatic.com/kilobots
And join the SCRC Kilobots facebook group here: www.facebook.com/groups/Kilobots/

See you all at the next one!
