A standard HACR event in the parking lot of Electronic Parts Outlet. The weather should be nice and cool. November is a great time of year to be in Houston. This previous event has the rules and what to expect. https://www.robotcombatevents.com/events/601 We are working on the website and will try to move the FAQs to there.
If you are competing, try to show up to the parking lot between 9 AM and 10 AM. Be through safety by 11:30 AM. To pass safety, your bot needs to stop moving when the transmitter is turned off. If your bot doesn't failsafe, ask how to make it work at least two weeks out. You can test your failsafe with just your electronics. This and weight are the things that might stop you from competing.
Entry fees are probably going to be 150 gram: $10, 1lb: $20, and 3lb: $40.
