    Re: Mech Warfare 2014 Update

    We are having a robot competition in Kansas City, MO this year during our Maker Faire if anyone is interested.

    I can setup a Mech warfare arena if needed.

    Entering into the competition is free.

    Thumbs up Re: Mech Warfare 2014 Update

    Michael is right, we have several overseas guests that are coming over to exhibit and compete. If anyone is in the mood, come to the Heart Land and show KC what Mech Warfare is all about! We have a HUGE train station and plenty of room for as many of you as we can fit. We will get details on the website but sign for a Maker application and come have a blast and the best BBQ in the nation! I'll be at Maker Con and Maker Faire Bay Area (Ultimaker Booth) if anybody wants to meetup and talk. And, of course see Michaels booth at Bay Area!

    Damn, that's right when the in-laws are arriving from Europe. And they are not particularly into Mech Warfare...
    I hope you have a blast!

    I'll be trying to get there.

    BTW, Tyberius, any news on the state of approval of the Velostat target panels??

    Re: Mech Warfare 2014 Update

    That is great! Anybody interested should sign up right away to help me justify providing a larger space for the competition. Free booth unless you are selling something, which I didn't get the impression anyone was doing. Let's roll!

    How is the mech warfare committee coming along? I think it would be very beneficial to get that going as soon as possible. Having some leadership to coordinate community efforts on MW related projects would probably speed up tech development (and other things) a good bit.

    Luis, does the Mech have to have MW regulation target panels, or is the KC Maker faire bit just a dog-and-pony show type deal??

    The event is not a regulation event but it will be the only event in 2014.

    We replace the target panels with carbon paper and a piece of foam board. This works well to score the matches.

    Not sure what you mean by a dog and pony show?

    Okay. That'll allow me to easily get there.

    By dog and pony show, I mean showing things of no importance, ie, exhibition matches.

    Re: Mech Warfare 2014 Update

    OH, yes it will be more than exhibition matches.

    We will have scoring, winners and losers and metals for first, second and third place.

    I want to be as close to regulation as possible but are there working target panels for everyone?

    I also think KC would be a good place to have a mech warfare committee meeting.
