2012 Flapjack Challenge

Pancake Breakfast

Join FIRST Team 1625 Winnovation on Saturday, December 8, 2012 for a pancake breakfast.  Pancakes will be served from 8am - 12pm in the high school "cafetorium."  Tickets are $5 for adults, $3 for children.  We'll also have an awesome bake sale and basket raffle to raise money for the 2013 robotics season.  Contact any Winnovation team member for tickets, or email to request that a team member contact you.


This year's Flapjack Challenge will be Saturday December 8, 2012 beginning at 10am on the Winnebago High School campus.

This event is designed as a friendly "mini" bot (less than 25 pounds) competition AND a great training opportunity to get everyone ready for the FIRST Kick-off in January.  There is no registration fee.  Winnovation expects to field three "mini" bots, with four or five area teams joining us for  the day.

Friends and family are invited to watch the competition, enjoy some awesome pancakes (hence the "Flapjacks"), and start holiday shopping during our wonderful basket  raffle.

Rules for the competition are available for download here.  Our Animation Subteam is working on a game video to illustrate the action.  Look for it in this space soon.  If you have questions about the game, check out the game's Facebook page.  

Additional logistical details on both the flapjacks and the challenge will be posted here over the next few weeks.  If you have any questions please email Karen Hill.
