    Can't wait! I'll be sure to bring DataBus, which I've been slowly making improvements on.

      Well then, I'll bring my bot, Daisy Rover, which is mostly disassembled at the moment. I'll try to assemble at least some of it by Sunday. Can't wait!

    Great meting! Really looking forward to doing a team AVC thing this year! Yes, we were serious about my Jeep ( So, first topic... erm... safety? :) The diyrovers group is here:!forum/diyrovers
    There are many really bright folks on this list. It's quite inspiring just to tune into the discussions. Many of the members are not only former AVC competitors, but many of those placed on the podium over the past few years. It's a heck of a group and we'd love to have you.
