House of NERC 2004 Event Report
Another small event in the basment of a firehall in the middle of nowhere, PA. Many folks took the trip for the battle in the basement. This event debut a newly designed 8 ft. box that was just like playing with legos, a bagel hazzard and even bingo. The infamous Nar Karts also made their appearance in the middle of one of the weirdest weather patterns. Overall, just another lazy weekend.

Here go the thanks... (lessee who I miss this time...)

Rob & Nar for building and delivering a beautiful arena. We'll work on the door latch later... ;)
Assembly crew: No clue. Running around like nut at time.
Joe: Excellent venue, excellent donuts, and excellent caffeine. Joe also built an new ant insert, which due to math failure on my part didn't get used. Moto, look out.
Chuck: Box loader extraordinaire, judge, whatever the heck else needed to be done.
Beth and Michelle: Brackets, scheduling, and Josh-sitting.
The Bensons and Petersons: These guys help with every setup and teardown - need more dedicated members like this! Thanks guys!
Gilleski: Checkin, safety, and judging (well, most of the time...)

Aaron: Judging
Paul: Judging. (Exactly HOW MUCH did you judge, Paul ???)
Al: Judging in a pinch.
Anarchy Dude: Registration. Jon also gets the Tony award for most bots entered... In the box - the dude... On deck - the dude... up in 2 fights - the dude. ;)
Whoever the family was that lent their video camera to John W to tape. (John, did they ever get it back???)
John W: Sitting there with a camera and tripod as usual. I think Johns been to more events than some of the officers at this point... ;)
The rest of the NERC officers and members for their continued support and hard work.

Seems like after this event, the paradigm is definitely shifting.Peepzort Dude won his first match... Anarchy Dude won a few awards with wedges... (Wait, that hasn't changed a bit.) Junior did not immediately fall into the loser bracket to work his way back up...Paul didn't weld any contactors... All in all, a decent event. Hope the mediocre turnout (41 bots registered, 34 actually showed) is not forecasting the future - Moto 05 in 4 short months...
