December 12th - Six Cans and Five Spot Indoor Competitions

In December, we move indoors with two competitions at the Dallas Maker Space, Six-cans and Five Spot. Six-cans is a popular gateway competition to the May 2016 Can-Can Soccer event. There has been a lot of trash talk about handily beating the club time record. Five Spot is a new competition that will challenge your robot's obstacle avoidance and navigational ability.
