I was wondering whether anyone knew if the pro event at Maker Faire was still going to happen - I haven't been able to find all that much info on it beyond an insect event that will also be there.

I should've been a bit more specific: I was wondering about the San Mateo Maker Faire competition. But on the same subject, I haven't seen registration information for any Maker Faire competitions anywhere.

I've been trying to figure out the same thing. If they wait much longer it's going to make things harder for anyone not on the west coast to attend....

The registration is on their website. I was checking it out the other day when I stumbled across the Power Wheels Competition in Detroit!

Well, that's a shame, because that means RoboJackets probably won't end up going to any competitions before fall semester. On the other hand it does mean we can fully test and debug the robot once assembly is done, and even make some minor upgrades.

Rumor has it that it's canceled, but no official word yet.

It now says "Save the Date: November" on their website. Probably as official of an announcement as there is going to be.
