Perfect timing, I am busy on the Sunday. Excited about this one, new 3D printed parts are being made atm.

I assume you mean 10am for the start!

You can't change it to 10am. We'd have to be up first thing to get the two hours drinking in & be confused for drunks. Or an even worse fate - coming to the event sober.

Ah, no way, I can't make the 26th! Looks like I'll have to wait until next year before the new robots get an outing.

Not sure we can make this one, its too far north for us :cry: can't stay over night as I have an owl flying experience in Andover on the Sunday morning. I will keep an eye on how many are going, we might sign up at the last minute.

I will definitely be going, barring some disaster happening - apologies for my radio silence lately but I've been caught between moving back to the UK and dissertation work which will probably mean this is my only event this year : <

If it's okay I'll sign up closer to the time, once I know which robots will be ready - The Hurting is definitely in, Jigsaw is definitely out (64 hasn't been started and V isn't going to survive a serious battle), and at my likely rate of progress Arcus will probably be forced into fighting...

EDIT: Is anyone else travelling down from the north or going through Lichfield at all? I may be needing lifts to and from the train station ^^;

Bit of a trek for us, what with a trip to Leeds the week after...

Folks,
Less than a month to go on this and only Craig and one person signed up. To be fair to Craig and others making travel plans, can we get a bit more definitive yea or neigh on who is likely to go. If you really aren't likely to make it, don't be overly optimistic.
Cheers,
PeteC

Good point I was waiting to be sure which robots but I can always change the name of one if any are not ready.
Now signed up.

I've signed up the robots that are definitely going - for those interested, The Hurting is The Hurting with new armour but the same blade, powerful drive, lack of self-righting ability, and weight problem (offers of small 2 cell batteries gratefully recieved in the event of an emergency), Pocket Arcus is Arcus but actually fitting in the cube due to being boxier and smaller, The Self-Aware Colony is two servos, no weapon, and absolutely no dissent, and the fourth slot on my team will hopefully be a clusterbot, pending both myself and Harry being able to come up with decent names and robots that move forwards, backwards, left, and somehow right as well. I'll update the website and my build thread with pictures when my camera charger turns up...

Looking very forward to this already, will be really good to see everyone again :) hopefully there's a decent attendance!

I wont have time to finish Anto 4, its a bit complicated, so I'm going to bring another in its place, badgerbot perhaps? another anto? Boxing Unit 2: the search for Revenge? no instead I have opted for a walker which I'm calling, "This is how it feels to walk after 2 pints of black rat"

If you havent signed up already please do so, I go up on the Thursday night before, bring your fleas and ants, also your robots I might bring Tanto for show but as we have plenty of room.
