1) Business Cards - No not for self promotion but links for the club. I think listing your blog is totally ok but having the southern groups link & Astromech's site is a big bonus.

Granted not everyone will go or build a droid and even less of them may finish  one but it does make it easier for you & them to have the link. Wink

2) If you don't have relays in your droid to avoid blowing the speed controller  you should. (For more info just ask Todd. I've only heard about it a half dozen times recently. Wink

3) This one is very important! Have separate power switches for your system and foot motors.

We all work hard on our droids and there is nothing worse than a 200 lbs out of control droid taking off.  Rolling Eyes

Feel free to add more if you think of them.
