Southern Antweight Challenge 2012 - Brighton, 21 April 2012

Post by BeligerAnt » Fri Jan 27, 2012 10:25 pm

Once again we will be running SAC at Brighton University, thanks to Ian Watts and STEM Sussex.
All the usual fun and mayhem :)
More details when we've figured out exactly what we will be doing... :wink:

Directions here:
http://www.brighton.ac.uk/maps/moulsecoomb/
(postcode BN2 4GJ)

Sign up here:

and a list of who's coming here:
http://robotwars101.org/ants/antweightw ... php?id=213

Edit: The event will take place in the Cockroft Hall (in the Cockroft building), there will be signs at the main entrance. The hall is on the ground floor and dead easy to find :)
The event will run from about 10am to 4pm, although if you arive at 10 on the dot you may find yourself helping to set up!

An unashamed thread bump for the Southern Antweight Challenge, now that the AWS is out of the way!

Please sign up if you're coming.

There will be a full double-elimination non-spinner competition, plus full combat and "something else" (surprise!).
We should also have a spare arena available for testing, grudge matches, whatever you want.
There should also be the chance to have a chat with other roboteers - not always that easy at the AWS these days :)

Turn up around 10:00 - 10:30, should be finished around 4:00.

Hope to see you there!
Gary, Team BeligerAnt

This is always a good event where you get a bit more time to checkout the other robots in a more relaxed atmosphere but still have full competition battles.

I have entered with the same 4 bots I had at the AWS and am hoping to get something else done before the event. I may have persuaded an experienced roboteer to join...

Just a quick reminder, if you are coming and haven't yet signed up - please do so soon!

Looks like there could be around 40 ants, so not quite the quiet, relaxed event I had envisaged!
We will send out a message to everyone that has signed up with more details, mobile numbers etc later this week.

Simon and Craig have dropped out so it is probably nearer 45 but still a very good turn out for a non AWS event, I am really looking forward to this.
Great to see Zenith and Void making a come back and bringing Scott with them. :roll:

Some important info I forgot to put in the first post (but have now added ;) )

The event will take place in the Cockroft Hall (in the Cockroft building), there will be signs at the main entrance. The hall is on the ground floor and dead easy to find :)
The event will run from about 10am to 4pm, although if you arive at 10 on the dot you may find yourself helping to set up!
