Wow, that's soon. 

I should probably be able to whip something together. Probably the 12lb sumo class. I can't commit yet as I have something going "early some weekend in september" that I need to coordinate to another day first.

I do hope you can make it. the sumo should be fun and no one should go home it a bucket.

We may be able to make it, depending on how much progress we make. Got a lot of irons in the fire right now, but I will definitely update if we can.

Right now the plans are for a new Ant, and to redesign both Gemini and Scorpius. So we have a good bit of work to do!

Alex, surely you have a DPMI that is in the ballpark range of the 12lb sumo class right?  Might as well plan on that instead of the 30s at this point...

I wonder how many of these will find their way on an active bot.
