This blog will will contain my rather pedantic ramblings on my experiences within the miniature war gaming hobby. There will be informative how-to’s, thrilling battle reports and thought provoking editorials. I fully expect that history will one day view the contents of this blog on par with Homer’s Illiad or Newton’s Principalia. Or it's a complete waste of time.
My son's team competed in the PA Robotics' Championship tournament this past weekend in Weatherly, PA. The team did very well. We were a bit disappointed to get knocked out of the competitive aspect in the semi final round but that's how it goes. We did learn that our autonomous program needs to be a bit more fault tolerant and that's an important lesson. Our next competition is the big one - the World Championship in St Louis (April 27-30). The competition will be both a real challenge and a lot of fun. The picture shows the boys during the judges review.
We did win the Rockwell Collins "Innovate" award, which is given to the robot that the judges feel has the best overall design to complete the challenge. It's a nice vote of confidence for our design. Now hopefully I can get some painting in!
