Rock River Off-Season Competition

July 28, 2018, Rock Valley Community College


The Rock River Off-Season Competition (R2OC) is another opportunity to take the robot out for exercise. In short, we can use a main season robot again with whatever tweaks deemed necessary to make it better, and then compete with 35 other teams for a day.
