PostSubject: Possible NERC 15lb event?!   Wed Apr 08, 2009 5:50 pm

After talking with some of the guys on the RFL forum about 12lb bots being upped to 15lbs the discussion went on to if we would get 8 bots or more to compete they would considering opening up a 15lb class at Moto and/or House of Benson. With some organization and support from other teams this could be an awesome event! Bloomsburg has already showed intrest as its in there backyard while i believe BCA will also be as many of there students already compete with ants, bettles and hobbys. While these years moto has passed house of benson is this summer. Anyone seriously intrested?!

Would the 15 lbs. class be a highschool thing or open to anyone (like old farts)?

When would it happen...roughly?

RE Robotics has sent 12-lb robots to NERC in the past, so I'm sure they might be interested.

If Benson Barnyard Brawl (house of benson) does end up going threw it is August 15 and 16th in Winchendon,MA. Brian benson hasnt commented on this himself yet so we'll have to see what he says. Im not really sure how rules would work on that, but its something that i will bring up. Also for anyone who doesnt know about house of benson, its pretty much on the Benson farm and he lets people campout outside of his house if they want with there being hotels 10-20 minutes away.
Motorama is usually in the Febuary.

I don't know if they'd send the entire 15 fleet though Razz (current count is seven robots, total).

I'm going to be working on a 15 lb bot to bring to college with me to start up a battlebots team...

I'm going to Carnegie Mellon! woo! and orientation is august 16-23, so if the event is legitimately the 15th, I might be able to do it... granted it IS a 9 hour drive from MA to pittsburgh... :/

I have to think you could build a pretty wicked wedge. You never said anything about my idea i had said earlier.
Or we could take still and after
