Dust off your mini sumos and come on down to the WCRS meeting tomorrow morning.  (Head down to Comic-Con afterwards)
We’ll pull out the mini sumo rings and do some practice rounds so that everyone can tune and have time to refine.

Admittance to the Aerospace Museum is free for anyone that is coming for the WCRS between 10am and Noon.
If you know someone who is interested in robotics but hasn’t had the opportunity to get involved yet, bring them by!  We have 2 workshops left before the games that will result in a competition ready robot to keep!
There is also plenty of time to build various kits and get them ready to enter.  While the workshops are going on, we’ll be on-hand to support kit builds.

A couple of options for those not in the know:
