Pretty cool day. Mad organising skill by Will and co.

Went pretty well for me, considering it's me. Can't wait for some footage, esp of the Robot Simulator 2014 v Fandabidozy (sp?) to have review for myself.

I must say what a great event and well done to Will and all his helpers who did a great job of organising the event and getting through all the fights so efficiently.
I personally had a great time and even won a few more fights than of late.

Hi guys,

Thanks to everyone who came to the event yesterday and watched it online. The support from all of you was fantastic and made the whole event possible.

We managed to have the biggest AWS competition yet with 93 robots in the main competition and we still managed to fit in all the fights on time and even have a couple of breaks as well. :)

Thank you to everyone involved with keeping the event running especially Mark for running Antlog and judging along with Fin and Ian, Max and Joe for their work with the stream and audio all day and everyone else who helped (Ben, Harry, Dave, Gemma etc.).

Also thanks to all the roboteers for keeping your robots running and being so quick changing over between fights- you made everything run so smoothly.

Well done to all of the winners- very well deserved all round.

If anyone has any comments or feedback please post them in the thread that Mark has set up.

Thanks again and hopefully we'll be back this time next year for more :)

Congratulations to the winners, it was a tough competition. I'm incredibly disappointed with my driving, which for some reason went to absolute rubbish about half way through. Will have to focus on practicing driving more next time.

I've posted my thoughts about the event itself in the other thread.

Andrew - If you can send me a PM with your address I''ll get the trophy sent to you.
