Brighton Modelworld 2014 - 21-23/2/2014

Post by BeligerAnt »

It's that time of year once again. I know it's 7 months away, but if you are reasonably certain you can help with Modelworld 2014 please indicate below.
The new regular date (3rd week in Feb) no longer clashes with the half-marathon and the Friday coincides with local school half-term so all 3 days should be busy.
Once again, expenses are being squeezed, so if you can afford to cover your own transport it would be much appreciated.

Hi

I'm kind of new hear, but some of you may know me from the FRA forum. Anyway... down to business.

What is it that is going to be happening at this event (is it a competitive tournament, some friendly whiteboards or something else). Either way, we might be able to come, just need to confirm bits and bobs with my dad.

ohhh... and if some of you are interested in what we're building, have a look at this (the AW starts on bottom of page 2 :D): Team Jeopardy Build Diary

Thanks

Hi Sam
Modelworld is basically public demonstrations involving us handing over our transmitters to visitors to allow them to have a go with the robots (no spinners!). We also run spinner demos and have plenty of robots on static display. We spend most of our time explaining antweights or discussing the death of RW on the TV!
If you get a chance to get along to Brighton Mini Maker Faire in September (assuming we get accepted!) you can see our demo setup which is very similar to Modelworld (and it's free to get into the Maker Faire!)

Modelworld is confirmed, so if you can make it to help out be sure to let me know. We have a total of 12 passes available (although 6 are already taken). I need to submit names early in January so if you can help out please post below.

Hi Harry
If you're over 16 (so I don't have to be responsible for you) and you have some robots to display and enthusiasm (and patience!) to share with the Great British Public then you're very welcome!

I'm 17 and i could bring Lynx, 50 Shades Of Gateshead & hopefully Ripmax.

I've done antweight displays at the REWL/Robot Wars events at Gloucester, Porstmouth & Newport.

Maybe i should link to my youtube channel
