We host the competition at Robogames (http://www.robogames.net) in the San Francisco area each year. This will be our 4th year competing, and this year the competition is being held at the San Mateo Fairgrounds April 20-22nd.
Building a Mech for this competition is no easy feat. There are no ready-to-build kits available and everyone building so far is doing so from scratch, or using an existing robotics kit and heavily modifying it for use in the competition. Our Mech Warfare community primarily operates out of the Trossen Robotics Community Forums, found here: http://forums.trossenrobotics.com/forumdisplay.php?121-Mech-Warfare
That is exactly why we are trying to build an armored arena! We have a 'Hardcore league' that allows for more powerful weaponry to be used, but we've been forced to hold these matches in a very small 8x8x2 lexan arena that is used for small Combat robots. It's not nearly as cool without the scale buildings and detailed environment, which is why we want to upgrade our existing full-size arena to one that can safely accommodate the more powerful leagues.
