I can no longer make it to AWS 56 :(. A mix of getting to Bristol and accommodation costing a fair bit and still fixing up my bots. Good luck to everyone taking part!

Stil planning to be along but prob down to 1 or two bots. Had a lack of time and some printer issues.

May have a new chap along to give ants a go as well.

Have signed up, hopefully the robot will be finished. If not we'll still come along to see how it all works and learn what we can.

Has entry for the main tournament closed? Can't seem to find a button to enter, but the state is 'registration'. Apologies if I'm being dumb about this

Hey Charlie, you need to be logged in and have your bots added to your profile. then go to the event http://antlog.garya.org.uk/event/11 and click 'Entrants' then click 'Sign Up' and then you should see a drop down of your robots and a create button to add them :)

Info for AWS56, this Saturday, 13th October in Bristol!
If you haven't yet, please sign up your robots asap at http://antlog.garya.org.uk/event/11

Timetable:
08:00 Venue opens, Set Up
09:00 Event Starts, tech check begins
10:30 Fights Start
13:00 Lunch Break
13:30 Fights Resume
by 17:00 hopefully.. competition finished :)

Venue: 58th Bristol Scout Group, Scout Resource Centre, Gadshill Road, Eastville, Bristol, BS5 6LJ.
Google Maps link: https://goo.gl/maps/CSJiHvcP7iy

Parking: Venue has a car park and there's street parking if car park full.
If you park on the street, be sure not to block the cars at the end of the street as it's a dead end road.

Arena: Unfortunately Peter Waller's arena is unavailable, so we'll be using the Bristol Bot Builders arena which is a little smaller than typical AWS arenas (it's 1m x 0.8m) just so you know.

Donations: We're running this event out of our own pockets, so we'd really appreciate donations from competitors to help cover costs. Suggested donation is £5 per team to either our paypal: http://bbb.gd/donate or cash on the day.

Thanks all! Any questions hit us up, and we'll see you all Saturday :)

Sorry for the Newbie questions .....

Travelling down from Scotland and staying overnight with friends on the way, do we need to be there for 9am sharp or is there a bit flex?
What (other than the obvious robots, controller, battery charger, us) do we need to bring?
Any other tips for a new family team with 8 year old appreciated!

Thanks
Jeff.

Hey Jeff,

Wow from Scotland! Impressive!!

The closer to 9am the better as we have to get through a lot of bot tech checks before we can start the fights.

I'd say bring an extension lead / 4 way plug, apart from that you seem good to go!
