Competition Description:
Bot Blast is back in Bloomsburg, PA on July 20, 2013... Columbia Mall and Dreadfully Wicked Robots present this annual insectweight tournament (150g through 6 lb) for the 6th consecutive year. The event will take place in the center of the beautiful Columbia Mall just off I-80 in Bloomsburg, PA.

Awesome trophies, plaques, and great prizes for the top 3 in each class, including the "Golden Light Tree" Championship Trophy to each class champion. Plus special awards for Best Engineered Robot, Coolest Robot, Best Driver, and a Long Distance Award for the team that travels the furthest to attend the event. Special awards/prizes will also be given to the official Rumble winner in each class.

Beginning with the 2013 event, Bot Blast will use its own custom rule set, which can be found on our website at http://botblast.webs.com .
