The BattleBox at Long Beach, California in 1999.

The Long Beach 1999 BattleBots event was the first competition sanctioned by BattleBots. It was held at "The Pyramid" in Long Beach, California. There were three weight classes at the event: Lightweight (named the Kilobots class), Middleweight (named Megabots) and Heavyweight (named Gigabots). Each weight class ran in a double-elimination bracket (this was the first time a BattleBots competition would be run in this style). The tournament was broadcast online on ZDTV, and was also taped for the BattleBots Beginnings DVD.
