Our fifth robot competition was held back at Rancho High School in Las Vegas. We had 24 robots competing in the 5 different events, including our new Dead Reckoning competetion.

The Best Of Show award went to Jan Malasek for Road Rage.

We would like to thank the following sponsors for their gracious prize dontations:


Mini Sumo Results

We had 9 entrants in the mini sumo event. As we did last competition, the preliminary events were a chance for every bot to have a single battle with every other. Then the top 4 from the preliminaries went on to a single elimination bracket of best 2 of 3 battles.

Line Following Results
We had 7 robots competing in this event. Robots had to make 3 laps around the track without falling off, and were given 2 chances to do this. We started with preliminary races to determine the top 4, and then had a single elimination bracket to pick the winners. The line following track had 12 straight tiles, and 24 curve tiles, for a total 3 lap length of about 2821 cm.

Dead Reckoning
