EVENT: Cocktail Robotics Grand Challenge

EVENT: Cocktail Robotics Grand Challenge

WHERE: DNA Lounge – 375 11th St, San Francisco, California 94103

WHEN: Sunday July 16th, 2017 from 5 PM to Jul 17 at 12 AM PDT.

Our fourth annual Cocktail Robotics Grand Challenge is coming up on July 16th, which is about three months away, so now is the time to start promoting it to the sort of people who will enter the contest rather than just the spectators. Each year, I find that I don’t really know how to do that, and then people only enter at the last minute, so up until a few days before the event I’m in a panic thinking there’s going to be one little robot surrounded by an angry mob.

So I emailed the people who have entered in the past, and… that’s pretty much that. Now we just wait and pray, I guess?

We will run some online ads, obviously, but it’s not clear to me how much good that will do, as far as attracting contestants goes. Spectators, sure. People who actually do things, those are harder to reach.

In previous years, we haven’t been able to get anyone to write about it. One or two blog-links, that’s about it. This thing is awesome, what the hell!
