NSWRFC Marayong Season X Round 1 - Feathers - February 16th



Hi guys,

It's time to kick off the plans for 2013.

I'm quite happy to organise an event at Marayong, again on the proviso that we can get some response out of Jeff prior.

DATE

FEBRUARY 16th

PUT THIS IN YOUR CALENDAAAAARRRR NAO

Block out days at work for those that work weekends, inform your wives, etc etc so that there can be no excuses on the day. This is especially important with our current low numbers of active participants - one no-show could break the event.

CLASS

Featherweights. Gosh darn it, we have the arena, we need to run the 'proper' robots for once! We need a minimum of 5 bots, 6 would be ideal. If we run 4 its going to be all over very quickly and probably not be worthwhile for all concerned.

LOCATION

Marayong. Once again, pending Jeff being made explicitly aware.

COMMITMENT

  • Once we work out a date, can we all please sign off by responding to the thread with a post indicating you are in and what robot(s) you will be bringing.
  • Then you need to ensure those bots are ready!
There is over a month between now and the earliest date we could pick, and at most around 2 months. Plenty of prep time since I beleive the majority of us already have bots already ready to go!

OTHER DETAILS

We need to organise a day prior to get in there and fix the arena up a bit. Any volunteers? I would prefer to organise this with Jeff's knoweldge also.

Interstate visitors more than welcome!

He used to have a forum membership didn't he? Has anyone previously tried PM'ing him, which if his settings allow it should send him an email? Or emailling him directly if his address is there? I dunno what his username is

PM's don't send email notifications afaik, and Jeff was indeed Giant Robo but I doubt he has looked on the forum in years...

Tried facebook / google but found nothing Sad
EDIT: and just tried calling again, meh...

Laughing OK Just had a lovely chat to Jeff! Razz
Turns home phone isn't connected, so that explains why I couldn't reach him. Apparently Bort has the mobile but well yeah. Rolling Eyes

He'll pop on, but an event in Feb is good, so let's set a date nice and early. Cool Sat would probably be better I'm thinking.
