We are happy to announce the results of the Central Illinois Robotics
Club's First Annual Autonmous Robot Sumo Competition.
The event was held on Sunday November 14th 1999.  We had a great turnout
for our first time hosting this event.  We had about 10 entrants with 13
competition worthy bots.  I would estimate our crowd at slightly over 100
people, which I was very excited to see.  I think we were successful in
our goal to bring robotics and robot sumo to a wider audience.
We even got a nice write-up in the local newspaper.
You can see the details of the event at http://circ.mtco.com
We have the results, some photos with more information to come as I get
All in all we had a great time.  I hope to see some DPRG members next
year! ;)
