House of Robotic Destruction 2018

The Ohio Robotics Club is pleased to announce that our combat robot event, House of Robotic Destruction (HORD) will be returning to ColossalCon, a cosplay and gaming convention, at Kalahari Resort & Indoor Water in Sandusky OH on Saturday June 2nd. ColossalCon features many events and actives that draw thousands of convention goers each year. They are promoting HORD as a feature event and we are expecting hundreds of spectators to watch.

HORD will feature four weight classes; Fairy (150 gram), Ant (1 lb), Beetle (3 lbs) and Mantis (6lbs). Trophies and prizes will be awarded to 1st, 2nd and 3rd place finalist in each class. There is a $10 registration fee per robot. All HORD participants will receive a full event day pass
With their registration. All registration will be handled via Builder’s database (http://www.buildersdb.com). If your team is not registered, please do so.

Non-Combat Robotics

To help keep the audience engaged during the breaks in the main tournament we are currently seeking individuals/group who can provide a 15 to 30-minute demonstration of something related to robotics during those breaks. This could include (but not limited to);

Biped Robot Kung-Fu / Boxing / Dancing / Whatever
Astromech demo
Giant Hexpod doing something cool
Robot soccer / hockey
Lego Mindstorm

Demo performers will need to report to the event coordinator during morning check in and then perform their demo at a scheduled time. Demos will be done in or in front of the combat arena. Demo performs will be provided with ColossalCon day passes and will be free to tour the con when they are not preforming. Please submit your demo proposal to registration@ohiorobotclub.com
