Re: 2017 Beach Bot Battle

I learned today that the NASA Stennis Space Center's mobile machine shop will be supporting this event.

I also learned that we have a high chance NASA's Dave Lavery will be coming, confirmation coming soon. I was able to hear him discuss the Curiosity Rover with students in New Orleans last fall and he is an amazing person.

We currently only have 4 teams committed, please email me at clinton.brawley@gulfportschools.org to get signed up and/or for more information.

Re: 2017 Beach Bot Battle

3946 will not be competing at B3. Due mostly to our loss of build space, our robot is barely in demo capability, much less competition capability. We are currently in "storage" mode, making repairs in a space that makes us look forward to working in a 10'x10' pit, and doing drive testing in a a carport. The second best drive space we've had this summer was when we re-positioned some tables in the public library for a demo during the summer reading program kickoff, and the best was a middle school gym for another demo. Still working to carve out some build and practice and programming space, and hoping for a break this week, but it will be too late for this event.

Oh no! Is there anything we can do to help? Maybe it may be possible for you guys to get to B3 a little bit early on that friday and have some practice and repair time?

If you guys do come to B3 we will have our full competition pit setup with all sorts of spare parts, belt sander, band saw, mini drill press etc, and you guys would be 100 percent welcome to use them if needed. We will also have a considerable amount of students attending, so you would also be welcome to borrow 1 or 2 people to assist in repairs etc. Let me know if there is anything we can do to help.

Thanks for the offer, but in this case, the issue is more software than hardware. We lost our programming mentor of the first five years, and a few key points were missed in turning over to the new one. We've decided to re-code the robot from the ground up, and we've scheduled a programmer summer camp to do this, but due to our facilities issues and mentor schedules, it won't happen until the week of 16-22 July - the week after B3. Our founder and founding lead programmer, Gixxy, will be coming down from Ruston to head this up.

OBTW - if anyone in the area wants to attend a programming camp based on Java using Robot Builder and the Command Based model that week and is in driving range of Slidell, PM me and we can probably fit you in. The format is a highly practical course, with the goal of programming a specific robot (our 2017 robot - and we're working mechanically to get the practice robot to be a near twin of the competition robot). Specific hours still TBD, but probably mid-morning to early evening for five days.
