I would like to organize an OpenROV gathering in the Virginia area (fare thee well NorCal). I am moving to Newport News, VA this week and am looking for fellow ROV enthusiasts to meet with and discuss ROV/AUV related projects. I will be organizing a few excursions next year and would love to learn about the Chesapeake bay area and see what we can do with the OpenROV kit therein.
Drop me a message if you are interested. I will give a more detailed write up at the end of July once I am settled and properly plan an expedition.
