So when and where will the NRL be holding a regional event in the southeast?

It looks like even if some Florida bots wanted to go to the nrl 'national??', it wouldn't be possible??

All these supposed national event organizers need to get together and figure something out or just call it what it is....a regional or local event.

just my 2 cents

this year you could as long as your bot is following there rules

Exception: For the 2011 event the league will allow students/teams to participate that are not in an NRL sanctioned program, as long as they are compliant to the NRL technical regulations.

Unfortunately, as with many educational programs, schools need to know the year before, in order to have the time to get stuff together.

the non-lipo rule (if that is the case) also makes it not worth the effort, until some new nrl compliant bots are built.....we barely had the funds to get our fleet of old bots up and running....

The eligibility thing sort of has me confused, because mass has the NRL posters and stuff. But is not listed on the list of sanctioned regional events.

yup, and apparently bastoni and the guys from plymouth have been attending for the past few years. I know their bots are decent. But I really don't think they have won any of the regionals...

Basically, the NRL does not want to exclude anyone from their competitions BUT, they do want it to grow. This is basically why they put the note on their, to draw attention to their organization and make it grow by having the other competitions become NRL Sanctioned.

Everyone knows where the lines are crossed in battling robots the past 2 years so I think everyone understands why this was noted.

I can see where a competition might try to sanction or list its results under two different sanctioning bodies next year......

Someone has got to give or the whole robot community will remain split.

NRL or BotsIQ ???

My opinion.... I'm Going NERC !!! Until the smoke clears!!!!

4 competitions per year and basically a national event for Motorama!

I don't know if the smoke will clear anytime soon.....hopefully NERC/Moto will continue to have a 15 lbs event.

Hopefully Nola will continue down here.

Miami Dade Youth fair in 3 weeks....

Alright, so the time has come to start discussing with my team attending this event. It would be helpful in making our Decision if we had a general Idea of who is planning on going.

I know Hanover expressed interest, but were you able to get you paperwork submitted in time?

I talked to Frisco about it at MOTO, but I can't remember if he said WESTMIFFLIN were coming or not...

Bloomsburg...marshall?

Plum... Don?

I know the guys over at Georgetown Day School Robotics were interested, but I don't think they are on this forum... if any one is in contact with them and wouldn't mind asking that would be cool.

Dubard I saw that you guys are doing ROBOGAMES, why not add this too and just sweep every possible competition?
