The Western Warship Combat Club is going to be at the Maker Faire 2009 (May 30th and 31st). The Robotic Warship battle is great since it puts ship design, electronic sophistication and operator skill against each other.

"The Western Warship Combat Club will have an entire outdoor arena at Maker Faire, Maker Faire.complete with a 50′ x 70′ pond and bleachers for 500 spectators per battle. There will be war! The Axis and Allies battle 4 times on Saturday, and twice on Sunday. In between battles, WWCC is introducing a new event: Race ‘n’ Shoot, in which contestants drawn from the audience will race large radio control PT boats, armed with ping pong cannon. "
