New robotics club in southwest Chicago area

I just wanted to announce that Moraine Valley Community College has started a robotics club this fall.  The first competition is slated for December 1st, 2007 and will consist of Lego MiniSumo and a Robot O-Games (like a contest with four mini contests consisting of Robo Push, Robo Bowling, Robo Soeed and Robo Line Following).  See for details.

Everyone young and old are welcome to participate or spectate.  MVCC is located is bordered by 111th Street on the south, 86th and 88th avenues on the east, 107th Street on the north, and Kean Avenue on the west. Directional signs are located at each entrance to the college.  See for directions.

The MVCC Robtics club has a web site ( and a Yahoo Group (mvccrobotics) though the later is just getting starting.

I would encourage Chibot members in the south/southwest/western suburbs to drop on by.  Information about Saturday, Decemeber 1st's competition as well as the meeting schedule is on the web site.


Take care,
