In talking to Rob Akers who Seems to be the head of the NRL and Mr Marshall, the adviser from bloomsburg
They are really trying to make it so you have to compete in a sanctioned regional event
They are also trying to make sanctioned events open to anyone(only seems to be a problem in the SWPA completion) whether a high school, college, local or from the other side of the state
Basically they can run a sanctioned event open to the public, or part ways with the NRL and do their own thing

Being in one of the programs not allowed to compete at SWPA, we were told we could compete in Meadville

PostSubject: Dates for 2013 National Competition   Thu Nov 29, 2012 9:00 am

Hey everyone,

I've posted this other places too, but in case there are people who hangout here but not over on Facebook, I thought I'd let you know the dates for the 2013 national competition have been set:

May 17-19,
IUPUI Campus, Indianapolis, ID

There will be more details soon and they will all be posted on the website:
http://gonrl.org/national_competitions.php

Also, Teams ARE NOT required to participate in a regional competition to be elegible to compete at nationals.

I'll try to stop by here are often as I can to answer questions, but if you need to get my attention quickly I monitor the NRL Facebook page very closely: https://www.facebook.com/GoNRL and I'm also a member of the RoboCommunity on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/groups/RoboCommunity/ If you want to get my attention there please tag "Maureen Carruthers" as I don't always read all the comments.

I don't have an exact date for when registration will open, but I'm hoping it will be shortly after the first of the year. The best way to make sure you are notified when registration opens is to join the NRL mailing list. Here's a handy link: http://eepurl.com/sc7Y5

So how is the NRL handling Multibots this year? can both bots point and score or just the master?

According to my read of the rules, both bots should be able to score points. We are updating the rules now, and I don't see any suggested changes to the multi-bot rules.

Was there confusion about this in the past?

We had never seen any one try this, and we were just a bit fuzzy on the rules

That makes sense--I've actually never seen anyone try it either Wink

If you have any further clarification questions, let me know. I'll do what I can to help.

NRL Nationals 2013 Results
Grand Champion: Pandemonium from Eastern Westmoreland CTC
1st Place: UC3 from North High School
2nd Place: Pandemonium from Eastern Westmoreland CTC
3rd Place: Ramses from Beaumont School
Best Documentation: Pandemonium from Eastern Westmoreland CTC
Best Engineered: UC3 from North High School


I had a great time overall. I didnt see much of the competition but I think the caliber of bots was higher this year compared to last. My bot went 4-2 which I'm actually really happy with.

I didn't realize it till earlier this morning but after 7 years in BotsIQ/NRL this was probably the last educational combat robot competition I'll compete in. It's crazy to look at how the bots have progressed and even how the program has evolved and what it's has done for me.

It was a pretty nifty competition.
Videos are finally mostly up on youtube for once.
Glad others recorded and covered it as the livestream ended up being kind of lackluster, though appreciated.
