We’re throwing together a little FRC hoedown in August and we sure would like y’all to come by and show off your robots to the yougins.

We know money can be tight this time of year, so we’ve priced our event at the low, low registration fee of $150—However, for you penny-pinchers out there who sign up before June 1st it’s only $100 . Whoa nelly! You could buy a half-bushel of Colson wheels with the money you save there!

Update sause:

  1. We have our first prize sponsor: JeVois

  2. After some brainstorming about how we could better help rural and underserved populations within the FIRST community, we have decided that beginning in 2020 we will focus on working with other teams to help them host subsequent RoboRodeo events at their schools. The idea is that by doing this we can promote FIRST to a wider audience and the host teams we work with will benefit from increased community support as a result of the buzz created by the event.

The bottom line is this: An off-season event held in a city with a population of 100,000 or more will make a positive impact. However, that same event held in a much smaller rural or disadvantaged community could be an absolute game changer. We all drive across the state to play in various events, right? Then why not hold them in locations where our being there could be the turning point for a struggling team?

This. I used to host LAN parties from 2003 to 2008 and this was a common thing. Sometimes, we’d do drawings, other times it was tied to a game tournament. That’s sort of what made me think of reaching out to sponsors for this event.

For MMRR, we’ll likely let teams choose their prize or prize bundle starting with the top ranked team and continuing in descending order.
