The competition involves two Sumo 'bots competing in a circular arena. The objective of the competition is to move your opponent out of the circular arena by pushing, overturning, or other means within the allotted bout time of two (2) minutes. The winner of each competition will be the Sumo 'bot left standing or functioning in the circular arena after pushing the opponent out of the arena or the last Sumo 'bot to leave the circular arena.

The competition involves two 'bots competing on an oval course. The objective of the competition is to complete three laps around the course ahead of your opponent. The winner of each competition will be the first 'bot to complete the three laps without any faults.

General Rules: This year we will have a holding area. You must be in this holding area during your scheduled time or you will forfeit that match. The time will be set at the start of the competition and for each subsequent round.
