I think your set. Its probably just to try to get teams in early since everyone likes to wait to see whose registered and you save a couple bucks

Is there anywhere to view what bots are already registered? Like an event on buildersdatabase I had checked there a couple weeks ago and didn't see one. I have to register Hanover but first I have to determine whether it will be two or three robots.

No, I don't believe they let people see who is registered. Mostly because of the reason cody mentioned, if its made availible everyone will wait and no one will show

Two years ago they posted pictures of the bots registered on facebook but last year they didnt. Dont see why it really matters whether two or three, if you have three why not bring three?

My team is set up as one sub team is seniors one sub team is sophomores and one is freshman the freshman have been dragging their feet all year and recently only one has been showing up so if more don't start coming to work then I'm not letting them build a robot. And I can't let one kid build his own robot because that sets a bad Precedent so I'm waiting to see if I have to register one or two robots.

But the Rhino and the bull are going to be there for sure?

How long are you going to wait?

In my opinion if they don't have something by now don't let the freshman compete.

Turtle,

Sounds like my kids!

Yesterday I told them I will not even give information as to what they need to do or show them if their wiring is wrong.

Totally pissed at them at this time.

They had PSSA Tests yesterday and were allowed to leave school and go home at 10AM.

All of them chose to leave and go watch basketball and fish and sleep over finishing 1 robot that is a pound overweight and 1 robot that is not finished.

Today, I called off school and next week I am not staying after school a single day.

They made their choices yesterday and I am pretty pissed about it.

We may not have a single bot out of 6 ready for our preliminaries next weekend.

Not my fault but theirs!

Has anyone started making plans for indianapolis yet?
There are a bunch of hotels closer to Ivy Tech(assuming I used the right campus) and alot of hotels that are cheaper.
We should all try to stay at the same place although alot of teams will just be staying at the Hyatt since its NRL designated

I've attempted to make plan, I have to present a rough per student cost to all the team parents tommorow.

So far We plan to stay at the NRL suggested Hyatt because $84 a room doesn't seem to bad and most likely getting a rental to drive back and forth.

Flying in to the airport is about $300 a person for us, which is about the same as if we were to drive but flying seems safer.

My only issue only 5 have given me a definite intent to go, while the rest are still maybe's. If just the current definites go we can get away with just renting one minivan. But if any of the maybes want to come then we would need another vehicle. And I'm not sure if 18 year olds can rent or not.

Cody what were the cheaper options you've found

I just saw some on expedia and priceline for $70 a night but I didnt look into where they are in respect to the competition
There are actually a couple different Ivy Tech campus in indianapolis so I'm not sure which one its actually at.
The Hyatt is actually 20 minutes from Ivy Tech drive(guessing thats where it'll be)

Thanks Turtle
I looked around a good bit earlier and couldnt find it. Thats not the campus i was going off of so the Hyatt is actually further away, (30 minutes according to google)
It was really nice having the competition in the hotel we were staying at's convention center

No worries had to call NRL to get the info. I haven't had a chance to look for a hotel I think one of the moms is looking into it tomorrow if you find a good option let me know.

A double bed room is $75 a night, a pool and wi-fi and a bunch of close fast food restaurants

I figure since either way we have to get a rental car, why not just stick with the Hyatt?

Its closer to the actual competition but the Hyatt can house more ppl in an individual room because the rooms also have sofa beds.

Dude google maps the hyatt address and the one I gave you they at on opposite sides of Indianapolis. That's a hike and who knows the deal with traffic and all that crap. I mean it's up to you that's just my opinion.

You can get a roll out at the ramada too
A half an hour is a hike that I wouldnt want to make back and forth. We did it in miami and it almost came back to bite us. Its really nice being close to the event in case you need something.
Turtle is right about traffic, the quickest way to get there takes you right through downtown indianapolis.
I'm not paying for your rooms or gas in your rental car, just letting you know some other options
