I didn't actually consider traffic so I guess your right,


So I guess we'll tryo out cody's place as well.

New question though, what is your time line on getting plane tickets, booking the hotel, and collecting fees from kids?

Between your hanover and LS how many kids are going to be going? Maybe with parents/advisers/kids you would have a reasonable amount to get a tour bus or something of the like.
My dad drives limo's and party bus for something to do on the weekend and its not gonna be cheap
So far alex and I are planning on leaving pittsburgh late friday night early saturday morning to make it for saturday registration/saftey

Not planning on hiring a guy to drive it for a mini bus you don't need a special licsense so parents and advisors would switch off driving it brings the cost way down however if we step up to a larger bus we would have to hire someone to drive it

just my 2 cents,
but when we went to miami, it was actually cheaper to rent 3 mini vans instead of a large bus. We were 21 in total. Gas wasn't to bad, but you'll need three diferent adults with credit cards.
my advice is to check around, you might find a deal.

Jeeves,

I'll send some pics of Under U.... This thing has potential !!!!!!

I told my team that it would depend on how they do at the Finals....

A Top 3 in the Grand Champion award or Arena Matches will get them there.... All they have to do is get the results I want....

I'll front their money and they can fundraise till the end of the year to pay me back....

It's up to them...

Only enough students for 2 teams there but we will bring all our bots for show !!!!



Tested Kv today with new ESC settings and weapon gears........ WOW!

Steve will have his hands full now!

Major Gyro at the top end !!!!

SO now the NRL has changed the venue? its now going to be at
Vincennes University Aviation Technology Center, Indianapolis, IN

which according to google maps is alot closer to the NRL hyatt than the Ramada...

so now I think we may end up going with the hyatt after all....


EDIT: Nvm, there is another ramada even closer to purdue!

I'm sure the team who won IQ PA will attend, they've take the same bot to nationals before.
There is a team from north of Pittsburgh going and I think Bloomsburg may be as well

There allowing 4 bots with only 3 kids?
Maybe plum could bring a few more in that case, but judging by this outcome 1 might be all that don can really handle without much more help

Son of a brick, anonymous,locano whats the 4th?

still need 3 team members per bot...

Checked on that last week...

I only have 2 team members that were dedicated enough or shall I say knew enough this year..

Knowledge comes in being there though...

There should be a good 5 or 6 next year with some knowledge but they have to pick up their workmanship.
