Now that you mention it… we are planning our 2nd annual ‘Indiana Robotics Invitational’, and we got the date set for May 5th, here in lovely Kokomo, Indiana.
No details are finalized for the IRI, but we’ll get them out soon. We will limit the number of teams, but we are not sure just how. Since this is during school, it will probably stay a 1-day event, and we will focus on getting teams with a ‘reasonable driving distance’ from Kokomo to attend.
In order for us to go to a ‘far away’ event like yours, it would be nice that it is after school is out. Also, we gotta know months in advance in order to not only get school board approval, but also the appropriate # of teachers, chaperones, and funds to travel.
I can tell you now that we have the BOMB listed on our schedule of events for 2001. Once you set a date, we will schedule it in with all of the other events, and we’ll plan on trekking down to Mt. Home. I will guess that you will double (at least) your attendance from last year.
In my opinion, a nice time to ‘Brawl’ would be mid-June. July 4th is a nice holiday, but it also is a time that many people spend with families.
The sooner you set the date, the more of us will come.
