Team Communications
To make it easier for us to push notifications to all users, I have created a group email so we can just maintain this list and send one e-mail to and all will get it versus searching for a previous email or entering all in an e-mail. This is still meant to just be the 1 faculty and 1 mentor for each team, you can then push out to the rest of the team. Instead of an app that not all may use, or other options, this is a simple solution for one email address to send to all involved. An invite was sent to all emails we currently captured for each team.

Royal Enfield Mentor Mixer (4/11)
Thursday April 11th we are inviting all faculty and mentors to join us at Royal Enfield at 226 N Water St, Milwaukee from 6-7 to see the RE bikes and chat about the platform for the next few years. There will be drinks and snacks.

On behalf of the Harley-Davidson Museum, I would like to personally invite you to visit the Museum on Thursday, April 18, 2019 as we unveil two very special rolling sculptures from two amazing teams. Join us as the Hamilton High School Robotics Team, Go Wildcats, under the guidance of Milwaukee Harley-Davidson(r), takes center stage alongside the Wisconsin Lutheran High School Team, Go Vikings, working under the tutelage of West Bend Harley-Davidson(r), unveil their entries into Harley Davidson’s global custom bike build competition known as the H-D(r) Battle of the Kings.
The 2019 competition features hometown Harley-Davidson dealers teaming up with the next generation of welders and wrenchers found at local trade schools in a competition that looks to discover the coolest custom Harley-Davidson motorcycle. The Reveal Party begins at 5 p.m. as we shine a spotlight on these two Milwaukee-area competition bikes before they take on the world. MOTOR(r) Can Room will be the spot to get up close to the bikes and the teams that brought these beauties to life.
Battle of the Kings Launch Party!   Come support your fellow Milwaukee Bike Build Community, vote for your favorite and visit the H-D Museum where history and heritage set the path for the future.
Join us at 5:30 for a special Shop Talk with Bill Rodencal, Lead Museum Collections, as he invites you into his shop to see how he preserves and helps maintain the world’s largest collection of unrestored Harley-Davidson motorcycles.
Please RSVP as soon as possible with your team name and number of members. Share this event on Facebook. And don’t forget, MOTOR(r) Bar & Restaurant’s weekly Thirsty Thursday concert series features Joey Gleesing. For large groups or for reservations, please contact Layne Saltness at and 414-287-2772.
We’re looking forward to welcoming you to 6th & Canal on April 18th.

Best Regards,
Erica Kaponya

Happy New Year Build Teams!
We hope you are excited for the start of the 2019 Build season. While you’re all at various stages of engagement with your teams, we want to remind you that adult and student waivers must be turned in before engines are distributed. We anticipate motors will be available the week of January 14th. Kirk can deliver motors to your location and retrieve waivers if you can coordinate place and time. Contact him at or 414-254-1310. If you intend to pick-up from Pat at MATC, be advised he will not release a motor without confirmation we are in receipt of waivers.

In addition, can you please notify Kirk who you specify as your points of contact for 1. Lead Mentor and 2. Student/School Liaison. Phone and e-mail is preferred.

Thank You
– Kirk
