So... I received a call from RG last night and he filled me on some of the details from the AI Community Meeting. With what he said I am extremely excited about the potential direction that AI is heading. Leave the negativity and drama behind and focus on building a community that can compete at the local and national level.
With that... ISA has been working with Firefox on an event at his field (MCC). Our plan is to bring the Tennessee, Kentucky, and Indiana groups to one field. In order to do this we would need full participation from the AI community. I can assure you this event will be extremely detail oriented and well ran. Our goal is to bring what we have seen at the national level to a local field for local players. Hopefully this will help draw them in and show them a peak at what the national scale looks like.
My reason for posting this is to see what kind of participation we can get from the AI community. We are currently thinking that the first or second week of August may be the best time frame. That has not been set yet, but it's a rough date. This will be an objective based event that will include terrain objectives, fragos, pyro, etc. Our long term goal would be to turn this into an annual event that the local community (or even the tri-state community) can look forward to.
So... what says you?!
