Login to antlog, from the "home" screen, click on "robots", and you will see a button to add a new robot.

I'll be there of course! Unsure of the team lineup yet though. Probably not going to be a competitive runout as I still need to repair those bots but should be a fun selection.

i should hopefully be along, however, i am waiting for parts to arrive to rebuild my bots as i sacrificed 2 to build my son his own little team for the event... so i will be scratch building mine as soon as my parts arrive (hopefully this week)

a question, does my son need to be on the forum to enter a team, or can i enter one on his behalf? (i wont be able to have him on my team due to the possible number of bots i will be bringing if builds and part arrival goes well)

i will enter my team on antlog as soon as i have one as i don't want to arrive with just 1 bot after entering 3 or 4... i figure i still have a bit of time before the deadline so i should be ok

Hi Kyro
Your son won't need to be on the RW101 forum, but you will need to create a separate team on Antlog for him. I wasn't on RW101 at all until after I attended my 1st antweight event so I can confirm you can do this.

Hi,

I’ll be there and will be the first event for me.
I should be able to bring 2bot but for the moment I registered myself and just one bit on antlog.

Is this enough or am I missing something?

What time will the event start in warwick?
(I’m from Coventry so it’s perfect!!!)

Hi Agors
An official start hasn't been announced yet, but people usually start showing up at about 9:00 for registration, where your robot is checked to make sure it complies with the rules (size & weight in particular). As long as you're signed up on Antlog you're fine to just show up.

Info for AWS57, on Saturday, 23rd Febuary in Tysoe, Warickshire
If you haven't yet, please sign up your robots asap at http://antlog.garya.org.uk/event/12

Timetable:
08:00 Venue opens, Set Up
09:00 Event Starts, tech check begins
10:15 Tech check closes
10:30 Fights Start
13:00 Lunch Break
13:30 Fights Resume
by 18:00 hopefully.. competition finished

I will try and accommodate latecomers if possible, however tech check will close at 10:15 (no earlier or later). Anyone who arrives after this time will not be able to take part in the main AWS, but if there is time there may be some space for fights at the end, dependent on timings.

The venue have requested we do not run robots on the floor of the room. can I please ask that any testing is done on tables and ideally within the confines of an enclosed tray to prevent any accidents.

Venue: Tysoe Social Club Main St, Upper Tysoe, Warwick CV35 0SE
Google Maps link: https://www.google.com/maps/place/Tysoe ... CnoECAYQCA

There is a local shop across the road from the venue (and a pub). Be advised that mobile connections are not great in the village.

Parking: There is parking in front of the venue and street parking very close.

Arena: Peter Waller's has kindly let us use his arena.

Donations: I am running this event out of my own pocket, so I really appreciate donations from competitors to help cover costs. Suggested donation is £5 per team to either my paypal (Richard_dex@yahoo.com) donate or cash on the day.

Thanks all! Any questions let me know.

My Mobile is 07932395372 should anyone need to ask anything (best times after 4:30)

Looking forward to seeing you there.
