Robo500 Spring (April 3rd)



 place: TBA
 time: TBA
date: April 3rd, saturday
who: anyone

The design of the spring track will cause the robots a little more trouble to navigate than a simple oval, but it shouldn't be too difficult to still make a simple robot which can make it all the way around. 
 Each robot will run in a time trial, and then (if the owner desires) will compete with all the other robots in one massive rumble.
 Many people work on their own robots, but the Club has a robot all members can help build, if you are unsure of time commitment or skill.
