All,

For those who were not able to attend the annual DPRG BBQ like Frank Elia (at 
the circus),  it was more fun than a cage full of trained monkeys!!! 

Many humans and robots were present. David Anderson's 6 wheeled  jBot 
perimeter followed the fenced in backyard and successfully navigated around some very 
tricky contours.

The UTD Crew including (Eric , Ed, Micheal and Mike) worked like slaves -- 
center stage --all day on their underwater autonomous vehicle (UAV), while the 
rest of us kicked back and relaxed.

A pelican case latch malfunction resulted in a flooded motor driver 
compartment which cost a few hours, but fortunately the drivers were not powered.

By the day's end the UAV was demonstrating its ability to nimbly maneuver in 
the water - like Flipper -- only made of metal -- very cool.

Much gratitude to John and Beth for all their efforts. Also, thanks to all of 
those who brought all the great food. I know first hand Julie, Michelle and 
Susan were some of the contributors.

Thanks too to the folks like Rick who provided the nifty popup sun shading 
devices.

Also, thanks to John's efforts in the dispensation of toxic chemicals the 
Involuntary Adopt-A-Chigger Service appears to have been closed down this year.

- Ron
