It's on my calender and "to do list":)
I would like to participate in Mech Wars but only if I can present a respectable bot.

Do that, and I'll get the missus convinced to spend our 2009 vacation in the US.

I'd do anything to see you in a painted cardboard box going "Danger, Will Robinson!!" :veryhappy:

Looks like awesome games!

I would love to be there see what other people are doing (exept you guys I know no one that's into robotics). Maybe find inperation. If I come I'm going to do Mech wars and line follower and mini sumo competitions. It's pretty costly for me, so I'll do as many events as possible.

It all depends on the end of school graduation (YEAH!!! :veryhappy:) and prom night.

Robogames suck... oh you'll find inspiration, and get exposed to so many AMAZING projects & competition. You'll see products that you didn't know existed, not yet released, or ones that you've only seen on youtube in action. And then there are the builders, lots and lots of people who are way too helpful, and love to talk shop with you, and for some strange reason, love to share their secrets. Robogames will turn your silly little hobby into a full blown addiction. Robogames suck...

Ha Ha Crabfu, I can just imagine that, If I were able to come to the robo games I would never want to leave, Just so much Tech to absorb.

Sounds like a fun and exciting event to attend... Are there any vendors like Kondo or Hitec, etc attending??? Also, do you guys attend all three days???

sam

Ok, so I shouldn't have said that I would MAYBE find inspiration, it's sure I will. I think my hobby is already an obsession. It can only get worse :p

Damn it! Now I really really want to go. I'll talk to my parents more about... The woodpecker technique works well. ;)

Yes, there are some vendor reps, but nothing for-sale other than the usual T-shirts and Beer. :) Hitec was well represented.

rpedro

good to hear... I am kinda hoping Kondo will be represented... I have emailed them to see what their plans are... anyway I will be there with my 2hv...:)

There's no way RN-! would let me not go. Bring them on. He needs new compitition, beating up the same bots is no fun. Sir Isobot can stay home, the kid will probably bring some real heat next year. My teamate keeps selling his bot just before the Games and just spectates. Log on and join up.

okay, so you will confirm dates etc, end of 2009???

Seems a little early to begin worrying about it. I suspect his focus is more on 2009 than 2010 or 3006 or 10092 right now. ;)

I'd like to attend as well. Just need to figure out if I'm going with bot in hand or just to watch.

Next year the event *may* be moved up to Fri-Sun, May 1-3, 2009. This is a preliminary date, and I don't speak for anyone involved. I wouldn't even begin to speculate on 2010's date, other than wait until after July 2009 to find out.
