This page showcases the different events that the club participates in, or knows about and would like to participate in. The Bot Brawl is CIRC’s main contest that we put on every year, so it warrants a page unto itself. This page is for everything else. There are all sorts of contests going on that the club would like to know about, so if a great contest is not shown here, let the webmaster know about it. The “About Us” page has his contact information.

12th Annual UNI Mini-Sumo Smackdown Competition

The organizers of the UNI MiniSumo Smackdown invite you to compete in their mini sumo competition to be held on Friday, April 21, 2017 from 9:00 AM to 11:00 AM at the University of Northern Iowa.  The unique nature of this contest is that competitors can mail their robot entrants to the organizers and they will assign someone to operate the robot as per the owner’s instructions.  Pretty cool, you don’t have to even be there, which is nice on the budget.  The only downside is that the owner does not get to see their robot cream the competition.  Another upside is that the owner does not get to see their robot get creamed by the competition.  I guess it depends on how you look at it.  ?

Here is a link to the site with the announcement.
