msg: judges 1st contact with last year's

This message, sent to the judges from 2004. Asking for their participation.

Hi Robotics Judges,

Thank you for being a judge at our Robotics competition last year. This year the competition is scheduled for November 19, 2005.

I am writing on the hope that you can help us again this year.

Please reply to this message so that I know I have made contact with you, and also let me know if you are available this year.

Robotics in Los Altos has grown again this year. We have 23 teams signed up, last year we had 17 teams. In order to manage this many teams, we will have two separate competitions that take place at the same time. Half of the teams will compete at Covington School and the remaining teams will compete at Oak School. Each judge will be at only one of the competition sites.

This allows us to correct some judging issues from last year. Remember that last year the field competition happened at the same time as the judging. So most of the judges didn't get to see any of the field activity. With at most 12 teams at each site, the tournament directors have scheduled events so that all judging will be finished in time for the judges to see the entire last round of field competition. It will be fun to see the robots in action.

We had a nine member judging team last year, if all of you can help, I will still need to recruit more judges. If you can recommend anyone for this activity, forward their name and contact info to me, and I can follow up.

BTW: A new organization (see has been created to promote and administer this, and other Robotics support programs in this area.

If you have any comments or questions, please contact me.

Thanks again,
Dave Lordemann
