It would certainly mean I don't have to repaint mine again.

Hmmmm.... I guess it would benefit me in spinner combat, what with the low walls. :D (if they work)

Spinner combat is always last. There's a league, and if you win a play-off. 4 fights max.

There are never that many spinners at Reading anyway, and since we're all building ones to beat them, they should be out quickly. lol.

Please bring it mate, be cool!

Hi, I'm still here...

Sure, if Oliver wants to bring his arena instead of Peter then that's fine with me.

How many people are bringing minisumo bots?

I would like to have a look.

I'll bring my arena, I probably won't have time to repaint the surface so it will be just as it was at the end of the last AWS. Divots and all.

I almost certainly won't have a minisumo bot ready by then. In fact, the way things are going we won't have many ants ready either...

I can bring my minisumo prototype board which is basically a bit of veroboard on wheels but it it is fully functional and may have the ultrasonic long range sensors by then. At the moment it has optical edge avoidance and optical opponent detection but these have only about half an arena range.
Has any one heard from Simon lately he seems not to have posted for a while. If he is happy to use Olivers arena I won't have to repaint mine.

I heard from Simon yesterday so he is around.

Can someone else bring an arena for Sat. I'm bringing mine but I'm out at the Reading beer Festival Fri night so might be in a bit of a bad state Sat morning if it's a good night.
