I drove 350 miles to enter Amdroid-A in the Southeastern Ant and Beetle Championship event in High Springs Florida. The weather was perfect for robotic combat, sunny and 75 degrees. Amdroid-A had five one-on-one fights and a rumble event. We won all of them. The 8x8 foot arena had no hazards or push-outs so most matches were judges decisions. Points were scored based on control, aggression, hits and pins. Amdroid-A dominated every opponent and won by wide margins. We also won the "Best Engineered Bot" trophy by popular vote. Amdroids overall record is now 14 wins and zero losses taking first place in 3 events. This bot has performed much better that I ever expected.
