AWS 61 - Wolverton, Milton Keynes - 15th March 2020

Post by loftyD »

Hello all!

AWS 61 will be hosted by the Milton Keynes Bot Fighting Club at the Wolverton Scout Hall (Address: 1st Wolverton Scout Hall, Furze Way, Wolverton MK12 5AQ) Sunday 15th March 2020. (Same venue for those who attended RoboShowdown)

The venue opens from 8am and and we have the venue till 7pm; we would like to start the competition and complete necessary tech checks, weigh-ins, failsafe testing etc etc by 10am.

Please signup at http://antlog.garya.org.uk/event/25; you'll be allowed up to 4 robots per team (if capacity becomes too high, we may drop down to 3 robots per team).

Just to re-iterate, this AWS is on a SUNDAY, not Saturday :)

Cheers!

Hi Ben,
Thanks for confirming. Will it be the same arena used for RoboShowdown (as per this vid)?

Also - any plans for a flea-weight comp before the start?

Hey

No, we will be using Peter Waller's arena for the day.

We have no plans at the moment, but I'll speak to the other chaps and see if there's a possibility in doing a fleaweight rumble or so.

Cheers

there will be spectator seating setup for anyone that wants to come and watch...

we are hoping to squeeze in 20 seats for spectators so there should be plenty of space

Awesome, my dad was meant to be driving the other half of my clusterbot, but he chickened out tonight so he'll be a spectator unfortunately.

Now to find a second driver!

im pretty sure that wouldn't be an issue... theres plenty of people that are willing to test out someone elses builds...

sadly, because i drive with the left stick, its hard for me to drive someone elses bot unless they are cack handed like me, or i use my own tx...

So I'd be OK to find volunteer(s) on the day?

I think you're pretty much always OK to find a second driver on the day, there's bound to be people available. It's just usually better to find someone in advance just in case.
