Thanks to Joey and Dave L for running the competition, really enjoyed it, except the long drive :P.

Damage Report:
Baby Hell: a few nicks in my front and rear panels, and my axe support got severed
Good and Evil: Divinity has had its drive servo wrecked, Little Devil has had the flipper cracked and the servo doesn't work anymore.
Stewie and Bulletproof: Bruised egos :P

Upgrades:
Baby Hell: New chassis, new axe arm (too long to fit the cube properly), secure scoop better
Good and Evil: Make divinity smaller and lighter to fit new drive servos in and make it fit the cube easier, new flipper and servo for Little Devil
Stewie: make it slightly shorter to allow for acetate
Bulletproof: Switch the battery and electronics around to make it heavier at the front.

Excellent event. I have to say thanks to Joey and everyone who helped organise it. I've really enjoyed that last two events an obscene amount, makes me wonder why I ever stopped.

Well done to Andy for winning again, and for cementing your position as my nemesis, you've officially knocked me out of every AWS I've ever been to! Great to see some of the newcomers doing so well too, even if they have ridiculous names! ;)

A big thanks to Dave too for driving the other half of WarHorses.

I was pretty happy with how it all went for me, everything went ok except for some dodgy driving. Pleased to get voted best looking robot, but fellas, she ain't pretty no more! But Don't worry, they'll be back, looking even better for the next AWS.

Also, did anyone get decent photos from Sunday? I was too busy picking bits of plastic off the arena floor to take any. Would be nice if someone could upload some to facebook/flickr etc.

Thanks to Joey for hosting and everyone else who helped to run the event. Pontefract seemed to be a good location for everyone (it's certainly about as local as it gets for me :P), and the turnout was great. Congratulations to all the winners and the Hall of Fame inductees too. I probably could and should have gone further in the main competition, but there were some fantastic robots out there. I also enjoyed Robot Roulette, so thanks to Rhys for letting me drive one part of WarHorses, Andy for driving the other half, and Dave for running it. Thanks to everyone who has uploaded footage too, I've enjoyed watching it all back and have uploaded a few fleaweight battles here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xsNTiJNOIys (Sorry for my terrible filming skills and apologies if I've got any names wrong).

Hope to see you all in Bristol! :)
