Yes, Wally! This year we have a very special guest visiting with us, our good friend, fellow robot builder, and the voice of the Tonight Show, Wally Wingert!

Make sure to ask him about his own robot project, "Andybot!"

    It was my first. I took two friends, we all enjoyed the displays and sharing of knowledge. Fun was had by all. We only wish there had been vendors with toys and other cool things for purchase.
