Columbus Robotics and Team 4926 are thrilled to assist with bringing IRI BACK! Columbus Indiana can’t wait to welcome everyone this summer. Thank you to the organizers for giving us the opportunity to help create a great experience for all the teams and volunteers that come! Let’s Go!


Woohoo!! This is my first time being in the right part of the country for IRI. Just sent in my volunteer email :slight_smile:


Any rule changes? Increased Cargo RP? Improved rules about frame perimeter incursions?


Submitted my volunteer application this morning. Missed this party!


Sent in my volunteer application last night. Gotta take Friday off to get there because I’m working nights that week and I gotta take Monday off because I’m working days that week. I’m excited to see what’s in store at the new site of the event!


Do you plan on releasing a list of applicants? @Chris_Fultz


Increase the cargo RP please!! 30 at least?

Will there be scholarships offered this year?
Are we collecting things for the backpack drive?


Thank you for the invitation this summer. While we really wanted to go, it just didnt make sense from a financial standpoint. Hawaii to US Mainland fares (other than West Coast) is just insane now for the summer.
It was 1800/person with 2 stopovers each way at best.
I just cancelled a work trip to New Orleans, as I just couldnt fathom spending 2400 for a 1-stop each way round trip flight. Saving eCredits for a future flight.

Our crate shipment round trip estimated at 4,500.00 which wasnt express.

Hopefully prices come down soon, OR we will need to start booking airfares way way in advance once the season schedule comes out for 2023.


Why the move to Columbus? Was Lawrence North not available?

I’m not on the planning committee but it is to my understanding that both Lawrence North and Lawrence Central high schools are under construction for renovations.

As a recent former employee of Lawrence Schools, I can attest that both are still very under construction. Large remodels.

Lawrence Central is ahead of North but not ready.

Columbus Indiana has one of the greatest collections of modern architecture in the country.

Worth doing a tour as an added bonus if your team is attending IRI.


This is probably right in front of me, but I can’t find a live stream link. Does one exist, and what is it if it does


Awesome! I love this stuff
