Barn Battles 2016
« on: July 19, 2016, 03:56:22 pm »


Dragoncon of the North? Cowcon? All I know is Barn battles is back! And still in a barn, how great is that? Come join us on Sunday, September 4th at the Wyoming County Fair for some awesome insect weight class combat and some crazy platform sumo.

We will be giving away awesome custom plaques and great prizes for the top three in each class as well as some very cool specialty awards.

IMPORTANT!
I will be sending out passes for the fair to the address you have listed on the database. MAKE SURE YOUR ADDRESS IS CORRECT. I will be sending a number of passes equal to the number of builders on your team that are attending. MAKE SURE YOUR TEAM ATTENDANCE IS CORRECT. And finally, although you can register right up to the date of the competition, I WILL BE SENDING PASSES OUT ON AUG 24. so if you are not registered by then you will have to pay to enter the fair as your punishment. Entering is free with a pass, 10$ without.

Yeah it doesn't look like I'll be able to make it. Not enough time between now and then, and with college starting basically at the same time it just isn't going to happen. See you all at Franklin.

We can still have the event with only 10 bots, can't we?

At this point in time its not looking good. I don't think the guy from Ohio will come just for the other two ants to fight. which would leave us a 8 bots. If we dont have more ants and beetles the 24th I may cancel the full combat and we can just have a fun sumo day. If that happens there will be no fee but I will still send tickets out so you can get in the fair for free. also I will be putting motors in massive again
