Unfortunately the hobby show event has been pushed to Oct 30-31. This is normally the time of our Robothon event and since the dates for that haven’t been fixed yet we are going to hold off on this event.
For those of you that have paid the registration fee/donation, I’ll send along refunds.
This is Western Allied Robotics annual Hobby Expo Event.
The event is free to compete in but the Hobby Expo will charge an admittance fee for everyone. Parking is free and there will be food trucks on site.
Currently Washington State allows events at their Fairground we need to be in Stage 4 for what is allowed related to Covid. We don't know what things will be like in May be we are hoping that we can have the event. It is also too early for us to document what COVID restrictions will be in place. If the event happens we will communicate what the show will be doing and what Western Allied Robotics will be doing to minimize risks around COVID.
This is a 2 day event with different robot classes running on each day.
|Saturday May 22nd||Sunday May23rd|
As with all WAR events, we will have our double elimination format with a single elimination final. If a weight class has 5 or fewer robots we will do a round-robin.

We have a suggested donation of $20 per bot to help cover our costs. WAR events are Free for builders but we do have storage, arena maintenance and other event related expenses. All of the money we collect goes to the Seattle Robotics Association which is a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit. Please donate if you can but donating is not a requirement to compete.
If you have any questions please contact us.
