    On March 16th we'll have our annual sumo-robot competition.
    Create your own, autonomous sumo-robot and join the competition!
    In this competition your robot has to find an opponent and push him out of the sumo-field (a black circular field with white rim).
    You first play against all oponents of your group.
    The best robots go to the next stage of the competition, with semi-finals and finals.
    There are nice prizes for the three best robots, the best bachelor team and the most original robot.
