Fighting Robots Return to Central Florida


Battle Beach, LLC, in partnership with Embry Riddle Aeronautical University , is pleased to announce that their next robot combat event, Battle Beach 4, will be held on April 8th and 9th, 2006 at the Volusia County Fairgrounds in Deland, Florida. This is the Robot Fighting League's Southeast Championships and an RFL National Championship Qualifier.

Since the demise of popular television coverage, robot combat has exploded as a grass roots, family oriented sport, with over 50 competitions held in North America each year. Central Florida hosts a very active league, with 6 local and 2 national level events annually. Information about events is available on the Builders Database.

Battle Beach 4 will feature remote controlled fighting machines in ten weight classes ranging from 5 ounces to 340 pounds. Instead of lounging on the sands of Daytona Beach, these flippers, full-body spinners, and flame throwers built by teams from as far away as Wisconsin and Las Vegas will spend their Spring Break in a steel and polycarbonate box wreaking havoc on each other. Previous Battle Beach events have featured hundreds of these unique, exciting machines, some costing as much as $20,000 and this next event is shaping up to be a real eye opener.

Battle Beach is extending a special invitation this year to members of other forms of robotic sports, including FIRST Robotics, secondary, and university teams, to display and participate in a wide ranging robotics technology exhibition.

More information about Battle Beach and Battle Beach LITE events may be found at www.battlebeach.com , and information on the Robot Fighting League National Championships may be found at www.botleague.com.

 Media representatives are welcome, both for spontaneous and pre-planned interviews with event organizers, builders, and fans. Brian Nave, president of Battle Beach LLC, has extensive experience in video and print media. He was the co-host of DIY's Robot Rivals, has appeared on every major combat robotics show, and is on the editorial board of Robot Magazine.
