Ah, if you were a bit more southern I might have been able to give you a lift, sorry about that!

Looks to be the right station to me having had a look on Google maps, I can't see any nearer stations.

Spectators are welcome but if numbers are big then we may have to make some arrangements, not been a problem for previous years though.

Nuts - four robots fight over a pile of plastic nuts for two minutes. Even funnier than it sounds!

Civil War - a new game that pits team members against each other.

Annihilator - as per usual rules, one out each round until we have a winner.

Gladiator - an easy game to add if we have time, there were 25 robots in at Southampton AWS can we break that record?

Hey there, would it be ok if I came along? just to spectate as my ants are in America

Hi again.

So I got an aye on my lift down. Soooo, what's the latest one could sign a robot up?

My situation is - everything else I need is ordered and should all come over next week. A race against time! Haha. If the postman brings it all promptly, and if I don't screw something up wiring etc for the first time, then I'd love to have a go.

If it's not ready I just will come watch. I don't wanna be that guy that says he's gonna fight then pulls out.

If sign ups are ok on the day, or the day before or whatever, then 8)

I seem to recall the best principle is 'sign up anyway' - since if you don't turn up on the day it's easier to just cross you off the list rather than fit you in, so post up!

I'd suggest you sign up on AntLog now and then if you know your machine won't be ready, just remove your machine from the list. Hope you're going to be ready, your machine is looking fantastic. :D
