It is going to be a trial event at the national competition. I don't know which states are doing it.
When it comes to the future, there are three kinds of people: those who let it happen, those who make it happen, and those who wonder what happened.

Some states said they might be running it in place of Sumo Bots. We'll see.

Isn't Sumo Bots an actual event this year, and not a trial event?

Then how can some states choose not to have Sumo Bots, but have Robot Arm instead?

States (and Regions especially) sometimes announce that they won't be running an event for logistical or scheduling reasons. If they can't run Sumo for some reason, but could run Robot Arm instead...seems like they could :shrug:...dunno if they would actually use if for scoring, but its possible. Won't know for sure if any states are till they update their sites.

I personally think we should try to find crystals with other frequencies - do you guys know the cheapest place to buy crystals?
