One team which was entered into the Climber/Power-Beaming event at last year’s Space Elevator Games, but wound up not competing, was the Queens Space Engineering Team. However, I recently discovered that they DID attend the games, albeit as spectators only.
From their website blog (“Progress” section):
This trip was well worth the time and money after spending one hour talking to other teams, The other 71 hours were bonus! The first hand experience of witnessing the event will have a profound impact on the success of our first competition experience. We hope to avoid many of the pitfalls we witnessed at this years competition and pass on this knowledge to future leaders of QSET.
They’ve also recently posted a “Help Wanted” entry, looking for help in their Sponsorship, Finance and Marketing areas (the reply-by date was February 15th, but I would guess that if you’re interested and they still need help, they’re not going to turn you down).
