All I can say is that I feel sorry for the drayage site for Great Lakes...I went with our machine to be dropped off, and there were at least half a dozen teams that showed up with their machines to be unloaded while I was there. Also, one of the hilo drivers(who had been pulled off his normal truck driving route to handle all the 'bots coming in) said that they had roughly 18 already by the time we got there right around 4pm. Sooo...based on my numbers, they've got roughly a third of the machines so far...they really ought to have a field day when the trucks bringing the machines from everywhere else show up later this week. See everybody in 15 days at Great Lakes 2000!

PS - To Mach-Vee(I forget the team #): I like the label for your shipping crate! =)

Hey Nate,

If you can go in the drayage area again, you can check out our robot in more detail. Our crate is all aluminum extrusions with clear Lexan panels (almost all legal robot materials - except for locks). You can clearly see everything inside.
