You may be asking yourself What is this HEBOCON thing anyway?
Hebocon is a robot sumo-wrestling competition for those who are not technically gifted. It is a competition where crappy robots that can just barely move gather and somehow manage to engage in odd, awkward battles. To my knowledge, this is the only robot contest in the world where people with no technical capabilities to make robots are presented prizes.
Take a moment watch and learn a more about what Hebocon is and where it all began and most importantly why the Bozeman Makerspace must host this event.
