SparkFun AVC 2018 is only a month away and we’re starting to get antsy here at headquarters. To celebrate our tenth annual competition, SparkFun and Digi-Key are hosting a Competitor Reception on Friday, September 7, from 6-8 p.m. at the Boulder County Fairgrounds to recognize our competitors and kick off the weekend. We’d like to invite our local community to join us in the festivities. If you’re not a competitor, you can purchase advance tickets below.
If you’re not exactly local, you can tune into our livestream on Saturday morning, which you can find at avc.sparkfun.com. We will be broadcasting the Combat Bots tournaments live and showing highlights from Classic AVC through the day on Saturday, September 8.
All spectators are welcome to join us for SparkFun AVC 2018! We will not be selling tickets as the Boulder County Fairgrounds are a very open venue. The only limitation will be the occupancy restrictions for the Combat Bots building; we will be restricting access to that due to building capacity based on the number of competitors participating.
