No, sorry Dave, it's all top-secret ;)
Honestly, if you're too busy *working* to come down to the other end of the country just for SAC then you don't deserve to find out about all the cool new robots that will surely woop your ar$e at the AWS! ;) (LOL, jk)

BTW you'll be missing out on cake too :)

Just wondering if anyone could lend me a 2cell Lipo that weighs under 17g for tomorrow, one has just died on me. Plus I may not be arriving until as late as 11am, but I will try my utmost to be there on time if I can. :)

I'm also very intrigued by the promise of cake. :)

Hey guys,
I did sign up (somewhat hastily) yesterday, however i have decided to pull out. Really just want to get everything 100% before i commit to a event like this, after a while turning up with shoddy robots gets annoying and doesn't show my creativity at all. I have been working flat out on my GCSE stuff so pretty exhausted/skint :roll:
Hope you guys have a blast!

No worries jack, hopefully we'll see you at the AWS??

I'm planning on videoing as much as possible so that I can update the modelworld DVD and will try and get the photos/video online ASAP after the event but it may be a few days before I get round to it :)

See everyone that's coming tommorow

just got back from a day of robot-fighting fun, there were just over 40 robots and it wasn't even an AWS :o

Good to see several new people/robots including a few people we saw at modelworld :)


Results

Full combat
1st Place Raoul (Jim)
2nd Place Cheese It & catatonia (Jim & Joey)
3rd Place NOM NOM NOM (Andy H)

Non-spinner
1st Place antimatter (Jordan)
2nd Place Flippant 2 (Peter W)
3rd Place anti depressant (Jonathan)

Gauntlet/assault course
1st Antimatter (Jordan)
2nd Propellant (Oliver N)
3rd Stewie (Dave W)

full results/pictures/videos once i've sorted them out/uploaded them.
Think I managed to video almost every fight in the non spinner and full combat and also some of the gauntlet. There's 133 clips of video on my camera and so it may take a while for me to upload them all...

well done Jim for winning, a big thank you to Garry and co for organising, and indeed everyone who helped run things,
it was a brilliant day, wetted my apetite for destruction again. even with my frankly shockingly aweful robots.

Whew! Just got back. Thanks to Gary, James and co. for a great event, and of course excellent cake. It was great catching up with everyone as well as meeting the new faces that have appeared since I last attended an event. I'm quite happy with how I performed considering it took me a while to remember how to drive, and Zenith fared far better than I'd expected.

Thanks again to the organisers and congratulations to all the winners :).
