Granz, let me know if you want me to show up early. I'm busy Friday night so I won't be coming until Saturday. It's 2 hours and 15 minutes for me to get to the Expo and if I come Saturday I may also be able to get a friend to come along that wouldn't if I came Friday.

B.

It looks like we will be coming in on Friday to help [OBC] set up.  The line-following course should be set up Friday night; not sure when the dohyō(s) will be coming in, but there isn't any real setup required - just put the dohyō(s) down, and let the games begin. ;D

The Expo opens at 9:00 on Saturday morning, and we will be there a bit before to set up our booth.  I am looking at beginning the robot contests about 11:00 AM, or so.  This will give the 'bots a chance to test out the area, stretch out a bit and generally warm up before the actual contests begin.  If you and [MindRobots] (and anyone else who can do some judging) can get there by opening time, then you will have a chance to look over the field and get yourself familiar with the judging sheets and rules.

Granz, please take me off the judges list. As of right now I have a very dear friend, that has helped my wife an I out, that has heart failure and is not expected to make it. Because of this I highly doubt I will be able to make the expo and I wanted to give you enough time to find a replacement judge.

@blittled,

Sorry to hear about your friend.   We'll miss you this weekend, but understand completely.

Jeff

Thanks Jeff, It has been a tough summer for me. I lost my Dad in June, another close friend in July from cancer and for a brief time the doctors thought my wife had cancer but thankfully she did not. By the facebook posting it does look like my friend passed away today. If I do see that my schedule is free Saturday I will come since I just need a diversion and being with my fellow Propeller enthusiasts would do me some good.

The hotel (Roadway Inn) has wiggled out of their "verbal" agreement to provide us a meeting room for the Friday night before expo.  These things happen.. unfortunately.

A new location will be announce for getting together to "chit chat" the night before.

For those who want to assist in getting things setup, we'll meet at the actual location at 7:00pm to setup tables, chairs, network, etc.    Anyone who can assist would be welcome.

Jeff,

We should be there around 3:00 - 4:00.  Can we meet at your shop and help to transport things, or with other preps?

@Granz:

I expect to be running like a chicken with it's head cut off around that time.  Don't know exactly what I'll be doing at that time, but I'll let you know.   If you would PM a cell number that would be perfect!

Thanks!

Donuts and Coffee service will be available at the show in the morning.   So if you miss breakfast, we've got you covered.  (depending on what you call breakfast. :) )

I got the tickets ordered... will I get tickets emailed that I need to print out, or just show up with ID?

Thanks,
Pat

Getting ready to load the truck and car in about 45 mins.

Bryan, Rebekah and I will be at the Expo location tonight around 7pm for initial setup, then back to Orrvile Chamber at 8:00pm.

I have a list of all the registrants (including those who registered today), just come and identify yourself.

We are checked in to the Rodeway.  Will be heading over to the Greene Center in a few minutes.
