The following email was sent March 1 by the BattleBots Staff. Rumors had been circulating about an April competition, but this tends to indicate June. I certainly hope they choose late June, since I'm getting married and honeymooning for the first half of the month!


AN ANNOUNCEMENT FROM BATTLEBOTS


GEARING UP FOR THE NEXT COMPETITION!
Greetings BattleBots enthusiasts.  We know our website has been quiet 
lately and that's only because we've been very busy locking down the 
dates and place for our next BattleBots Competition.  While we don't 
have anything concrete yet, we are looking very seriously at a San 
Francisco Bay Area event sometime in June 2000.

- This event would include ALL four weight-classes.
- It would be televised.
- All StompBots (walking robots) and Super Heavyweights must be 
pre-approved by BattleBots Inc. (for safety and rule adherences)
- Additional new/updated rules may be implemented.  For now use 
BattleBots Inc. Competition Rules & Guidelines - Version 1.5 
available at: http://www.battlebots.com/rules_index.html

Entry Forms will be made available on-line when the event date is 
finalized.  We will also issue an additional mass email at that time 
specifying event dates, location, entry procedures for veterans and 
newcomers, any new or updated rules, and entry 
limitations/qualifications.  This information will also be available 
on our website at http://www.battlebots.com.
