How Much will it cost to build the Bots?

Many people in Scottsdale, Phoenix, Tempe and the rest of Arizona would like to know how much will it cost to battle with the bots. Well if you are a member of the Arizona Technology Council (www.aztechcouncil.org Why wouldn’t you) it will cost $40 if you sign up early. If you wait, like I always do, it will cost $50. For those of you who are not members- bring your first child and we can talk. Just kidding. We will have those figures shortly.
