This will be the 44th Kilobots Tournament hosted by the SCRC (Saskatoon Combat Robotics Club). For the first time, the SCRC will be hitting the road and bringing the fun to Calgary's "Protospace" maker space for a tournament on October 26 and 27, 2019.
Plan on fixing up your Fairy, Ant, and Beetle weight bots after Nationals and the Saskatoon Entertainment Expo events for a weekend of epic rematches and new builders. Please follow Kilobots arena down and join us. We're hoping to use this as an opportunity to grow the sport in Calgary and entice new people to become bot builders, with an eye towards recruiting a local club that can host tournaments here on a regular basis. If that goes well, we will all have more competitors and competitions in western Canada.
Venue: *UPDATED* Protospace
Since plans to have the event at TELUS Spark have fallen through, Protospace has stepped up BIG TIME to host on only a few days notice. :D
Registration closes October 12th, two weeks prior to the event. Make sure to check out the SCRC "house rules" here: https://kilobots.com/events/rules/

Parking in Protospace's lot is free, but limited (watch for reserved parking signs and obey them) and street-side parking is available for overflow.
Are there Prizes?
Maybe, but the change in venue to protospace has thrown a lot of that into flux. :(
