Yeah, that's me. All that's left to do is the wiring, so once I get the Firecrackers it'll be up and running.

Hey Mike

Good to see you back on the scene...best of luck...I hopeChris gets those esc's done in time.

The rest of you botsIQ people should make a best effort to get there.....I think that they'll continue the IW class if they get a decent showing.

Where's Rick Frisco?????

Alex...if you haven't fought on wood before, this would be a good op to check that out.

IIII""""""MMMMMMMM BBBBAAAACCCCKKKKK !!!

Just go done talking to Pete Smith and I guess He has woke me up for the 2010-2011 season....

I had to take a big break with my son for Baseball season...

He had regular season and all star season to play through this year.......

49 games of baseball in a 4 month span with DAD arranging and taking care of both teams...

Anyway, It is August something... 16th to be exact...

I am back in the swing of things but way behind schedule on getting up to date with what is going on in the world of robots....

Ok so far here is what we have going on to date:

August 25th... visual presentation at National STEM meeting with all robots

Fall 2010 up to Thanksgiving break... CNC of parts for new bots and multiple fundraisers...

October Hoping to take old robots to Franklin but wont know until I get back to school and get permission.

Not having a fall competition as planned this year ;-(

We still have about 2 weeks of finishing up the spring designs once we get back to school.

Definately doing NERC (15lb and 12lb)

Definately doing Dayton

Definately doing Local BotsIQ

????? doing Nationals
I have a 8 and Under PONY league World Series to Plan here locally and Depends on time requirements.
If I dont go then one of the other teachers will go.

So Far that is what I have going on..

Send me some more updates so i can mark the calender before it fills up!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I'll need to ship the bots (or at least the lipos) somewhere ...

Got a decent place to stay there? perhaps a hotel right near Franklin...save the rent a car, etc.

I could ups my stuff to the hotel???

Thanks
