    That was a lot of fun. It was really great to see what everyone was working on and hear them talk about their creations. Michael's recap of Saturday's AVC and his article in the Robot Magazine that was handed out have me thinking about next year's contest! In the meantime maybe I can carve out the time to build a line follower for next meeting.

    Hope to see everyone next time. I'll try to get one of my line followers going.

    Great meeting, thanks everyone for coming, bring 'your bots, and double thanks to our presenters. Congrats to David Boniface for winning the line-following contest. Hopefully we'll give him more and better competition in the months to come.

    We mentioned the free, online Robotic Car course taught by Sebastian Thrun. You can find it here:

    Wow, we've hit our initial attendee limit. Please RSVP for the waiting list if you didn't get in and still want to attend. We may be able to fit more people or move to a larger space at Wings.
