I'm finally home! Reakon I'm the last one, haha.
Such a great event, and such a mammoth effort from Will to bring it all together. Everyone was fantastic, the standard of robots and drivers was exceptional, and there were some top class fights to watch! You are all such great people, it really is a pleasure spending these days with you.
Congrats to Oliver. I know I give him a hard time (and rightly so) but he's a top bloke and he did deserve the win.
Can't wait to watch it all back (and see my awful fails!). Did anyone get the tag team on video? Maybe I'll just watch that...haha.
Roll on Brighton in July and Reading again in 2013 (and the one that falls between those two, wherever it may be held).

I have one complaint though...NONE of my 4 robots' names are written correctly on that results page!

Ha ha, that's because Will couldn't be bothered to type them all in! :lol:
Maybe each entrant should type their own robot names into AntLog? :wink:

Glad to hear it was a big success, it sounds like on of the best yet. I'll try and keep the date clear for next year and will generally try harder to come to AWS's and see all you wonderful people and your robots in the future. :)

Thanks to Will for running the event. Congratulations to Oliver for winning.

The overall quality and reliability of the robots was really good, I had some really tough fights. The ideas are being put on paper for the next one. Someone needs to beat Oliver :)

Video 144 will be available at http://dl.dropbox.com/u/14502971/AWS%20 ... %20144.AVI for the next day or so, Andrew, can you copy it off from there?
