Save the Date: It's officially AVC season 2017!

Let the countdown begin.

Last year’s AVC feels like it was just yesterday, but that might be because I still have a stack of unused wristbands and special-edition bumper stickers on my desk, begging to be put back in storage.

Luckily, I’ve procrastinated cleanup for so long it’s no longer necessary: It’s officially AVC Season 2017! SparkFun’s ninth annual Autonomous Vehicle Competition will be on October 14-15, 2017, here in Colorado.

We have quite a few surprises in the works for our AVC friends, which we’ll be announcing over the next few weeks. We’re excited to up the ante for the competition this year – any of you interested in autonomous trucking? Or obstacles that (gasp) move?!

    This is the same weekend as Denver Maker Faire. That's going to be a tough choice for many of the makers in the area.

    October? Really? Did you forget about the weather in Colorado in October? It frequently snows, and/or rains a lot.

    Poop on a stick! My other vacation is during those dates :(

    2 days? I hope this means 2 days of PPPRS racing. Please tell me that PPPRS is returning!

      PPPRS is scheduled for these dates in Denver, so I'm guessing at the Maker Faire.

    Arrgh you moved the date again, now I have a conflict! I see that it spans 2 days this year, any idea what events will be on which day?

      We've got more news coming soon but for right now all we can give is the date. Thanks for the question!
