OK Guys now that the IQ Event is over I feel it is time to let the cat out of the bag about my plans for next year.....

I am going to form a Regional team from SWPA that includes everyone:

3-8 Grade building and competing in the Beetleweight Class
9-12 Grade building and competing in the IQ 15 Pound Class
College and Tech School building and competing in the 12Lb Hobbyweight Class
Open Division building and competing in the 120 Lb Class

I am planning on having meetings twice a month starting at 4PM at various centers and universities to design and work on the bots..

I already have 3 companies willing to help machine parts.

Anyone willing to help or join let me know...

Strict attendance guidelines will be set forth and a registration fee will be implemented to pay for the parts and materials needed to build the bots.

Competitions will be RoboGames, Motorama, Bots IQ and a few others that may be included.

A set minimum amount of fundraising will need to done by each person involved on each team to get the travel, hotel and registration fees paid for.

Think of this as a select group of individuals that have the desire and ability to compete at the top level..

I can name a few from here and a few that are in industry but I need to know who wants to be involved and at which level....

Meetings will begin in August and will be held at CAL, A few Tech Centers and High Schools within the area.

Deadline for new designs is End of September and builds begin in October. Moto 2012 will be the first competition then Bots IQ then Maybe CIRC, Robo Games, then ???? Schedules ????

Registration will be limited to 5 people per team and price will be $200 per member....

Fundraising minimums will depend on finalization of schedule and which bots will compete at the different competitions but looks like somewhere between $200 - $300 per team member.

You can also be a member of different teams and fundraise your membership if you would want to.

Once again a select group of individuals designing and building different weight classes to compete at the top competitions from SWPA.

I am concluding my TOO MANY HOURS at West Mifflin this year and passing the program on to another teacher to take over the building at the school.

I know myself and my son are in the 120 and Beetleweight classes and the rest of the spots are open at this point.

There will be other bots joining us at the battles but this team is apart from Local High Schools.

Let me know if there is interest and send me emails with links to your designs, builds and accomplishments with bots..... Also include knowledge of machining skills and materials.

Thanks !!!

Kyle....

You can be a satellite member of course....

Designs and work can flow across the forum and internet...

Just because I said SWPA does not mean that members have to be from there it is just an origination point...

Steve,,,,,

I am not leaving... just not putting the time in that I have in the past.....

I will still be helping design and tell you to redesign something that wont work...

I told you that I will be the knowledge factor but not the working factor for the next 2 years...

I need the time to get things done at home that I have deprived my family of for 4 years..

Besides how is Rocco ever going to beat you again if I dont help him build his bot???

Yeah look what happened to plum after our adviser and alex left lol

Man I would love to do this but I don't know if I would be able to make the full commitment. As hard as I could try, with work, school racing and all the random things that happen to come about I would hate to be the kid that never showed up Crying or Very sad
