Robot Battles has been staging robotic combat
competitions (mostly) around the southern United States.
Battles is one of the oldest continuously running
robotic combat competitions in the world. We proudly
trace our roots to the
Denver Mad Scientists Club
and are a direct descendent of the "Critter
Crunch" robotic competition held every year at MileHiCon
in Denver, which began back in 1987 (and is still going

just what makes Robot Battles different from other
robotic events? Well, we don't have a TV show, we don't
have supermodels, and we don't have huge cash prizes.
What we do have is a creatively unique host, some of the
most imaginative builders and designers in the sport,
and the most involved audiences in the country (in our

intense one-on-one mechanical mayhem matches. Which is
what it's all about.
As always, if you have any

or future events, please feel free to

you're at it, how about
