Combat Bot Tournament Winners!

Announcing SparkFun AVC 2017 Combat Bot tournament winners

Favorited Favorite 1

And we finally have Combat Bot winners! Due to the number of drops and team name changes, we had quite the challenge determining which bots belonged to student teams. If there is no student team listed as winner in any category, then to the best of our knowledge there were no student teams that won a match. If that is not the case, please email us at avc@sparkfun.com.

    I know one of the combat bots won the Digikey Crowd Pleaser award; can you say which bot? Pictures of it in action would be cool!
