1. What is the RoboCup Soccer Club?
The RoboCup Socer Club is a club which tries to bring together people of all majors to fully understand the workings and the AI of the Sony Aibo dogs. In this club we try to get a team of the Sony Aibo dogs to perform together and compete in a game of soccer. A detailed look into what RoboCup really is about visit
www.robocup.org .

2. How can I join the RoboCup Soccer Club?
As a student of Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology you are able to join this club and help us complete our goals. All you have to do is sign up to be on our
mailing list and show up to the meetings which are held weekly. All majors are welcome to join.

3. If I were to join RoboCup Soccer Club what would I do?
There are many things that are available for students to do when they join the club. Those who know how to (or would like to learn how to) program can begin to learn how to can be taught. There is also reasearch to be done on all sorts of parts of the Aibos. The mechanics of the locomotion, artificial intellegence, and many other parts of this competition need to be researched.

4. How much time is required to be in the club?
The amount of time put into the club is up to you. There are requirements for being an active member. You must first attend 6 meetings to become a member and then attend at least 2 meetings a month to retain your active membership. You may apply for an excused absence that is approved/denied by the executive committee in order to retain active membership.

5. How much do the Sony Aibo dogs cost and will I have to buy one?
The Sony Aibo dogs (depending on what model is purchased) cost between $700 and $1500. The model we will be using in the '03 - '04 year will be the Sony Aibo 210A wich run around $1300. The cost of these dogs is provided for by SGA and other donors to the club.

IMHO v0.8
