Wing and I are good friends and he is the mentor of one of our stronger teams in the Temecula Valley area. 

Wing, The RRS is a great group of folks very into robotics. They meet every third Saturday at the Woodcrest Library in Riverside. I'd get by more often if I wasn't so busy building robots ;>

BTW, RRS, if you want to see some robot building in action, this Saturday at Poly High School, we will be helping 16 teams from around Southern CA build a drive train for this years competition: Ultimate Ascent. Feel free to stop by, anytime between 8AM-5PM and check out the action.

Wing,

You might get better response if you came to a few meetings and talked about your FIRST group. By the way. We have another member who does FIRST too.
