Am I correct in saying we get our usual 2g lenience? If not, we won't be disqualified instantly? BH may be a gram over ATM, hence my asking.

I'd hope there's the usual compensating for scales too, I don't have access to a pair of good ones at the moment : <

Just got home. Really enjoyed this event, I have a lot of new ideas for some design changes and the general atmosphere was very friendly. Fantastic job to Scott of course, I will beat you next time!

Thanks to Craig for another good event even if my team failed again, I think we will need to introduce an over 65 event before I win again.
Congratulations to all who did well and hope to see you all at Basingstoke next month.

Just got back in after a very long few days - firstly, well done to Scott for winning again, and very impressively so, and congratulations to Dave for winning the fleas equally impressively, and commiserations to Euan and Alasdair!

It'd be fair to say my performance was terrible, Arcus taking out Anticide notwithstanding - largely due to a combination of a terrible draw (The Hurting facing a vertical spinner and then Frantic) and terrible robots (Snow Scraper reminding me why building the night before doesn't work...), although having a terrible headache most of the day didn't help at all either...I had fun though, on balance, and it was really good to see everyone again and I came away with a lot of inspiration and ideas for new robots.

Thanks to Craig for hosting and Harry and his parents for their hospitality/putting up with me and to everyone else for tolerating me! ^^;

Thanks to Craig for hosting another great event and a really enjoyable day. Congratulations again to Scott, you've certainly got a taste for winning now! Thanks to everyone else who made it, I was quite impressed with some of the new robots. See you all next time.

What a great event!!!! I really enjoyed it. Massive thanks have to go to Craig for all his hard work. Was great to catch up with people and meet new people.

In terms of how Mini E performed, it was a bit meh really. A little bit pants in the main competition, but was really pleased with how it performed in the annihilator and the tag teams. We never really had a chance against Nom Nom Nom and Void LOL I was also really chuffed to get best newcomer.

The main achievement for me though was managing to convince my dad that Ant Weights can be just as exciting as Feathers and Heavys 8)

P.S: Congratulations to Scott and Void, a really impressive robot. Also well done Dave and Little Devil for winning the FWS.

I just wanted to say a big thank you to everyone for being so welcoming and patient with my 2 boys. We all had a great time and told my wife all about our exploits most of the way home. Sorry we couldn't stick around until the end, I wanted to but the youngest was starting to play up.
We will be going to Basingstoke next month, so look forward to seeing some of you again and hopefully by then I will have worked out how to get Red Snapper to go a little bit faster!
