Incredible High-Tech Robot Fights Cause ‘Havoc’ With NHRL In Norwalk
We have all seen them on TV, the fighting robots with huge hammers or buzzsaws attached to them literally trying to destroy each other. Looks like some good, clean fun to this guy.
Remote control cars and I have always had a contentious relationship, I could never get them to work properly and it sapped the fun out of an activity I really wanted to be a part of. Alas, it was not meant to be, I drifted away from that sort of thing, but still held some interest in it, and would find myself mesmerized by the late-night and overnight "BattleBots" TV show in the early 2000s. BattleBots emerged from the original version called "Robot Wars." If you like that sort of thing, you can see it for yourself, live and in color in Norwalk.
You can experience the world of rampaging battle robots up close and personal not too far away in Norwalk. It's called the Norwalk Havoc Robot League (NHRL) and they hold events all year with another one coming up in September. Here's some information on who they are directly from their website:

I checked out the YouTube videos and I can definitely see the appeal of this particular activity. The Norwalk Havoc Robot League is located at 165 Water Street in Norwalk and the next event is Saturday, September 17. Each event has over 100 robots and you are really close to the action, I mean right up next to the glass "cage" where the battles take place. If the glass wasn't there you would be pelted with small robot debris and sparks.
It's an entire Saturday with several rounds all day long and food and beverages will be available, yes, wine and beer too. It would damn near be un-American if you DIDN'T have adult beverages at a "sporting event." Bring the kids, they will dig it and they have some special stuff for them to do as well. Here's where you can get your tickets to the September 17th event. Thanks for hanging out and if you are a "BattleBots" or already an NHRL fan, hit me up in the comments below, and I will see you again very soon
