Robot Challenge

Pictures of GGHW 2001. Thanks to Gord.

This will be the 1st GGHW Light/Feather Robot Challenge.  Anyone can enter as there will be a handicap points system, but you are asked to loosely follow Rex's Robot Rules.  Safety is the ultimate priority so no spinning weapons.  If Alan Gribble considers it to be dangerous, you will not be allowed to run.

There will be Trophies for Best Engineered and Overall Winner, so go on, get building. Alan & Anne Gribble have very kindly agreed to be judges, and as Alan teaches Robot Building at Stroud College, we hope to have some exciting entries.

Types of Robots

  • Heavy Weights - Like the ones on Robotwars! No Contest. They can just play and show off.
  • Light/Feather Weights - Small motors and about 12 kgs. No spinning weapons. Prizes for Best Engineered and Overall Winner.
  • Ant Weights - Tiny vicious things that wizz around a 3ft arena. All enquiries, email David Young Rules.
