DPRG: RoboRama 99b

With everyone getting T-shirts and getting ready for the 
Pepsi-Kid-Around, there hasn't been a lot of discussion about 
the contest.  I figured I'd wack that hornet's nest.  :-)

What's the deal with the mystery contests?  The "Sticks I, 
II, and III" contests.  Someone said these would be for
walking robots but there's no rules yet.  Maybe just have
I = Line following and II = T-time but for walking robots

We should also get the date and location set for the 
firefighting contest.  I will volunteer my maze for the 
contest but there are 2 possible problems:  
1) I don't want anyone to feel I have the "home maze" advantage.
2) I do not yet have ramps or furniture.

Perhaps the maze used at the IEEE contest could be borrowed?

FYI - I requested that RoboRama99b be added to the list of
events on www.robotmag.com (Robot Science and Technology mag.)
