Subject: [robotics-88] Robot notes - Philly Robotics Meetup

Hello all,

Just a few quick notes prior to the meetup.

First, I'd like to alert you to the AVR programming and interfacing class that the Hive is holding on Sat Dec 12th.

Fellow meetup member and robot expert Keith Chester will be teaching it. All proceeds go to the Hive and FUBAR hackerspaces. (Mike Mingroni, I think you should consider this for your project).

Those of you looking for a robotics holiday gift for yourself or others should check out this link (even though Black Friday has passed): (especially note Sparkfun's Free Day in January).

I wanted to have a meetup at Penn State Abington's RoboHoops contest, but it looks like they aren't going to hold it this year for some reason. For those of you looking for a project for next year, we can consider entering as a team one of the three contests they (usually) have every year: trinity fire-fighting, mini grand challenge, and robo-hoops.

If you didn't know, actually charges the organizers about $75 every 6 months (you can run multiple meetups for that price). I will start charging a few bucks per meeting starting next year to defray some of this cost.

Finally, I know some of us find the Hive a little difficult to get to. Don't get me wrong - Hive has been really great both for us and to us. But, unless you're driving, the commute can be a little challenging. I am going to look into some alternate venues and other ideas - like carpooling. Let me know your thoughts on this topic.

Hope to see you at the meetup next week.
