"Danger, danger, Will Robinson.” Not even sure Robby, the Robot of movie and television could compete with the metal muscle shown at Madera South, March 1-3 during the robotics competition. What a boon to Madera.
Many service clubs and businesses supported the event with hundreds of man-hours and thousands in monetary contributions.
