Hi Gayathri,

Congratulations on finding our mailing list and thanks for asking about our
Robotics club.
We are a diverse group of people interested robotics and all the
technologies that feed into robotics. We gather once a month on the third
Monday and anyone of any age is welcome to come along. At the moment we
meet at Tait Radio Communications in Training Room 2 located at 175
Roydvale Avenue, park in the south side car park. We post a notice on the
entrance door and if you can't locate us ring me on 022 606 8673 and we'll
come and find you. Sometimes people do presentations on items they have
brought for show and tell, or something that they found interesting.
Presentations may be as simple or sophisticated as folks wish. We've had
interesting presentations from 6 year olds upwards. We have a RoboSumo ring
that we can bring out if folks have robots to pit against each other. At
our next meeting I've been encouraging Robin to do a presentation on Git
software version control which could be loosely related to robotics. We
meet from 6.30pm to 9.30pm. The early start is so that young ones may
attend and leave part way through without missing too much. I've kept the
best news until last. We have no membership list, no committee, and no
membership fees because Tait very kindly allow us free use of their
facilities. Our next meeting will be on Monday 20th August.

Anyone else have anything to add to my ramblings? Anyone offering to
present a topic at next meeting?
