Introducing Firm Grasp! Winnovation's 2015 Flapjack Challenge

Mini Bot Competition 

This year's Flapjack Challenge will be called Firm Grasp! It will start on Saturday December 5, 2015 beginning at 10am in the gym at Winnebago Middle School (note new location) in the cafetorium at Winnebago High School!

This event is designed as a friendly "mini" bot (less than or equal to 25 pounds) competition AND a great training opportunity to get everyone ready for the FIRST Kick-off in January.  There is no registration fee.  

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.
