The Scrap Exchange and SplatSpace are teaming up to present a Hebocon Competition!

What is Hebocon?
Hebocon is a robot sumo-wrestling competition for those who are not technically gifted. During this competition, crappy robots that can barely move, gather to engage in odd, awkward, hilarious battles.

Who can play?
Anyone, no prior experience is required. This a low tech, no stress, comedic event for all ages and abilities.

How to enter:
Participants are encouraged to attend one of the three free workshops to be entered in the competition. During the workshop, you will learn the rules of play, receive instructions on how to build your robot, and practice battling other bots.

If you cannot attend one of the workshops, you can request a copy of the rule book by emailing the event coordinator at marketing@scrapexchange.org. There are a limited number of slots available on the day of the competition and workshop attendees may reserve their spot in advance. Remaining slots will be available first come first serve.
