Travel Info

Traveling from a distance? There is a New Home2 Suites by Hilton scheduled to open in Logansport in the Fall of 2022 (as of 9/10/22 it is not open yet). We will update information on it once it is actually open, but are unsure if it will be open in time for the Cobweb Classic. There is also a Holiday Inn located in Logansport. Both will be about a 25 minute drive to Caston.


We will make every attempt to have the competition available to be viewed live. We may use YouTube, FaceBook Live, or another source. We will post updates on here and on our Caston Robotics FaceBook page closer to the competition date. 

Judging Format

All In-Person Judging - The Team Interviews and Engineering Notebooks will be judged in-person the day of the event. Teams should bring a physical copy of their notebook to submit to the judges. No Digital Notebooks will be accepted. If you are utilizing a Digital Notebook this season, please print it out and bring it in a binder for the judges to review.
