This will be the 40th Kilobots Tournament hosted by the SCRC (Saskatoon Combat Robotics Club) and takes place at the Saskatchewan Entertainment Expo September 15-16, 2018.
Test your mettle (and metal!) against the best 150g, 1lb and 3lb robots in Canada and see if you can get your name engraved on the Kilobots Cups!
Over 15,000 people will be in attendance this year, plus the full event will be televised!
Saskatchewan’s largest pop culture convention, with the best in comics, art, shopping, celebrities, cosplay and programming!
Weekend pass to the Expo is just $35 for adults and $10 for children. One free pass per team; contact us for additional passes.
Also check out the Expo celebrities! The first four announced have been Billy Dee Williams, Doug Jones, Gates McFadden, and Ryan Hurst!
