The annual BunnyBots competition is one of the highlights of the FRC off-season for teams in the Portland area. It expands the boundaries of the 6-week build season to make FIRST last all year. Last year, 24 entered and hundreds of spectators showed up, a huge increase from the 3-robot start in 2008. Each year, Flaming Chicken alumni and mentors design the rules and provide the primary volunteer force to run the event. BunnyBots provides a way for new teams and new members to gain vital skills before FRC build season. For many students, this is their first experience making an FRC-quality robot. We hope this experience and the excitement of BunnyBots competition day stays with them forever.
Three robots form an alliance in 3 vs 3 style on a full size 27’ x 54’ field. The field surface is standard industrial carpet identical to that used at FIRST competitions. Vaguely similar to pool, the object of the game is to score more balls of your alliance’s color in pockets than the opposing alliance.
