    The annual Strawberry Festival is Saturday May 3 10AM-4PM at Elmwood Park.

    A chance to visit the festival & do robotics.
    Please be aware of the much higher pedestrian congestion in town, and probable impact on parking.

    In preparation for the robot parade at the end of the month, maybe we can set up a few mini-clinics around the meeting room. Each mini-clinic would focus on one aspect of creating a successful parade bot: getting it to move, getting it to follow a line, making it wait if it's too close to the bot ahead of it, adding some razzle-dazzle, and tying all aspects together. For the "wait" mini-clinic, I would be willing to do a slideshow on using sensors (touch, ultrasonic, infrared, maybe others?) and include live demonstrations on a variety of controller platforms (BASIC Stamp, PICAXE, Arduino, Propeller QuickStart, and fischertechnik).
