Event Description

Dragoncon of the North? Cowcon? All I know is Barn battles is back! And still in a barn, how great is that? Come join us on Sunday, September 4th at the Wyoming County Fair for some crazy platform sumo.

We will be giving away awesome custom plaques and great prizes for the top three in each class as well as some very cool specialty awards.

With the poor numbers for the antweight and beetleweight classes I am reluctantly canceling the full combat portion of the tournament. This is irregular and I'm sorry. but there isn't even enough bots to have a proper round robin. With this cancellation I've have decided to wave the fees for the 12lb sumo. thats right, it's free and we will still be handing out prizes. So lets still have a fun bot filled day at the fair.

I will be sending out passes for the fair to the address you have listed on the database. MAKE SURE YOUR ADDRESS IS CORRECT. I will be sending a number of passes equal to the number of builders on your team that are attending. MAKE SURE YOUR TEAM ATTENDANCE IS CORRECT. And finally, although you can register right up to the date of the competition, I WILL BE SENDING PASSES OUT ON AUG 24. so if you are not registered by then you will have to pay to enter the fair as your punishment. Entering is free with a pass, 10$ without.

The 12lb platform sumo ruleset can be found HERE
