February 1985 Minutes

At the club meeting Bud Collins showed a VCR recording made during the January 27th Special Users Lab session. Three robots were shown in a coordinated (?!!) effort to pass around a coke can. They also formed the club's first robot duet as they sang (slightly off key) "Old McDonald Had a Robot."

The labs are tenatively scheduled for once a month, two weeks after each club meeting. The emphasis is hand-on participation, exploration, and problem solving. Please feel free to name your pleasure at the next lab session. Joe Rowe will hold the next lab session at his home in Richardson. We will hand out directions to his home at the next meeting, or call him at (xxx) xxx-xxxx.
