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.
