The following was sent to the robot builders on 1/3/2001:

Thank you for your interest in U.S. "Robot Wars". We are very excited about
bringing the show here, and we hope to attract some amazing robots and
builders. Attached you will find the rules and regulations for building
your robot. You can also find them and technical sheets by going to and clicking on the U.S. Robot Wars 2001 link.
Right now, we are hoping to have all robots ready by March.
I will be in contact with further information in the near future. For now,
get started on those robots and remember to check the website for updates.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the production office
Thank you.
