The 2013 Track Meet season is now officially open! We have the official description posted on the track meet website along with online options for payment and registration this year. We are also working with a group in Portsmouth, NH to bring the track meet to New Hampshire this year, but that hasn't been confirmed yet, be back soon!
We have added a new event this year, the Walking Robot Race! Can you build a robot that can walk across three feet faster than anyone else? And we have modified the Steeplechase to make it harder this year. Check it all out at the "Official Description"
Track Meets are scheduled for South Portland on April 27th, Ellsworth on May 4th, and Oakland on May 11th. This is a great way to keep those robot builders busy during the winter and spring!
The 2013 Track Meet Description is complete but we are waiting on one of our locations to be finalized. We should have everything ready next week!.
New this year will be a Walking Robot event and a significant change to the Steeplechase event.
