Re: Increasing numbers

I would be more inclined to back option 2; it allows new people to fill in gaps left by people with (most likely) more opportunities to win by virtue of having 3 robots still.

Re: AWS55 - 30th June 2018 - Dunchurch Village Hall

Thanks to Chris for another top notch event :). Well done to Shakey for winning and to the podium finishers (back to the old format; Shakey, Andy H and Scott in some form :P) I owe an apology to anyone that witnessed by tantrums/stress/general upset behaviour (Greg from Team Zero in particular); my ...

Re: Robot Name Clearing House

I need to come up with a daft name for one of mine; all mine are based on evil stuff/characters or connected to rock/metal music. Don’t really do daft.
Give me a name and I’ll enter it, and try and build something before the AWS!

Re: Cornwall 3 day event?

If it’s the last weekend of August then you will unlikely have anyone interested because of Insomnia (the Featherweight champs) beingthe same time.

Re: Ant Freeze 5 - 3rd Feb 2018 NEW DATE

Well, I enjoyed that! :D Big thanks to John and family for putting on another great event, long may it continue (although with its popularity we may need a bigger room!) :) Great to see so many new faces attending, hopefully antweights will make it back to big screen again if this expansion continue...

Re: Eric - Build Diary

I presume this was a low cost ant? Good first attempt, fair play :)

Also: I strongly recommend a name change. The Robot name “Eric” is already in current use in heavies (and in fact has reached Facebook meme status), so it’s probably a good idea to change it.

Aws’ for 2018

Hey guys Sorry I’ve been a bit quite, been busy: So, because we fell behind our usual schedule last year, due to other commitments of some roboteers and/or lack of volunteers, I was hoping we can arrange 4 AWS’s this year to bring it back into normal sync (it doesn’t screw up our 20 year anniversary...

Re: Potential Exeter Antweight Event

I can collect arenas from people if need be, I don’t mind the distance but it may be a bit far for some folks (Pete’s been to pretty much every aws since he began, be a shame for him to miss out).

If anyone has a cube we could use, would be nice for a spare if our other one falls through.

All your robots are just superb, will you be coming to an AWS soon?
