SUMOBOT COMPETITION 10/26/13

ANNOUNCING - LVL1's 4rd annual Sumobot tournament will be on October 26th, 2013, 8PM at 814e Broadway (our home). There will be a Halloween party following the fun. All are welcome to join in the festivities. There will be prizes and eternal glory!

HERE IS THE POSTER http://wiki.lvl1.org/images/6/65/Sumo2013.pdf

The ring we will use is made of MDF painted FLAT BLACK with a GLOSS WHITE border ring. The rubber surface of the last ring was just to hard to source, build, maintain and paint.

You can join our sumobot workshop and build your own http://wiki.lvl1.org/Sumobot_Workshop_2013

Here is a good list if you want to build your own. I bet you can build a bot for $30, if you already have an Arduino! I plan on doing this.
