Best of luck to everyone going to this tomorrow! Sadly I got too much on this month for travelling that far this time. And my best bot is still not rebuilt from the last AWS haha.

Hope you all have a great day though and I'll hopefully see some of you at Ant Freeze 6.

Is someone filming at this?
My robots:

Third Law (antweight) - push/ram bot
Manticore (antweight) - hammer bot

Cheers guys. Had a great day out. Think I had a 6 in a row winning streak best run of luck so far. Feeling very satisfied as for a little while my robots ran to their potential.

A well run event that finished impressively early. Thanks to Joe and Dave. You ran it with charm and professionalism. And thanks to all the other Bristol bot builders who assisted with the event.

Congratulations team oink 1st and 2nd is a staggering result.

Thanks to everyone involved in putting this on, Craig (Firestarter) had a ball despite catching his finger.

Special thanks to Shakey for answer all our questions, Pete fit the acetate strip and all the other we talked to

We’ll definitely be back, hopefully with more robots and possibly some that are competitive

Just the 450 mile drive back home tomorrow now

Yes thanks to Dave Joe and the other helpers for a great event which turned out to be one of the slickest yet finishing by 4.00 pm.

Thanks all, glad you enjoyed it.
There were some fantastic robots and fights and you were all very patient with the quick turn arounds between fights :)
See you all soon at more events I'm sure.

Not to self promote *too much* but if Bristol isn't too far from home for you, we're doing an ant social (1v1 comp, 2v2 comp, football, assult course, boss fight) on the 28th October, more details here:
