What is MiniFRC?
MiniFRC is an annual quarter-scale FRC competition hosted by FRC Team 4561, the TerrorBytes. The inaugural MiniFRC competition was held on June 4th, 2016, when 16 teams played in MiniFRC: Stronghold. Since then our team has held a MiniFRC competition at least once a year, sometimes every six months, with the 9th off season event on July 1, 2023. This document provides participants/volunteers details on registration, updates, and any other information you may need.
