Just about got everything ready and looking forward to tomorrow :) I'll just be bringing SDF and my embryonic beetleweight chassis (you may point, and stare, but I politely request that you do not laugh) but it'll be good to see everyone again, as ever - travel safely and I'll see/bother you all in the morning!

Me & a friend will be there, probably just after 11. Not competing though, just to watch and learn! I hope my ant is finished by the next AWS.

Great day thanks to John and Family for organizing it.
The ability to reconfigure the arena worked well and the marble game was great fun.

Thanks to all who came, I think everyone got plenty of fights and games and enjoyed themselves.
I`ve got some modifications to do to the arena ready for Ant Freeze 3 in January and all four of our robots took a pasting so plenty to do.
I`m transferring the videos from the camera as I type and will hopefully have them edited and online by the end of the week.
However I no longer have the antlog spreadsheets so have no list or any results (accidentally overwrote the laptops operating system!)

Thanks very much to the Dennys for organising, Peter for the lifts, and everyone else for generally putting up with me in my sleep deprived state :) unfortunately I have been more or less bedridden since Sunday with the flu, so apologies if anyone caught that from me : <

S. D. F. was okay but suffered from a combination of poor driving and Rory; it's getting a rebuild before the AWS I think. I was pleasantly surprised by how much everyone liked the beetle though, I'm hoping to maybe get to an event before the world championships to get driving practice. Congrats to everyone who won, I'm going to go and lie down some more...

P.S. John, if you do feel like sticking the Lego 4" cube templates on eBay I'd be your first customer!

I`ll probably print some sets of the cube corners and sell them direct, I`ll let you know when I`ve got some and worked out how much they will be.
