Entry fee is $30/person, with teams of 4 – this includes dinner, equipment rentals, a free tutorial for beginners, and lots of prizes! We highly encourage everyone to sign up early, since there are a limited number of teams in the roster.

We are working with the Edmonton New Technology Society to have some soldering workshops for students to learn to solder or improve their existing skills. The project and date will be decided on soon. Please email Andrew at social@compeclub.com if you're interested - we would like a rough estimate, so please email even if you have nothing to say.
