An amazing event, congrats to scott and thanks to james an co. for organising it. Sorry for scurrying off early without saying bye to anyone but I had a train to catch. Looking forward to AWS39 :)

Great event. Thanks to Gary and particularly James for running it, and very smooth and without any degree of panic. Huge congrats to Scott for winning, couldn't have happened to a nicer guy, and to Andrew for coming second again. You will win one day, I'm sure. Lots of surprises throughout the event (Angry Bird, anyone?) made it very interesting. Me and Gemma will both be at AWS39, so until then! :-)

Bitter much Harry?

Congratulations & thanks to all - you know who you are.

Additional thanks to Dave Weston for putting up with and not killing me. Particularly though none of his loaner bots actually returned in the condition they were loaned...

Congratulations to the spinners for destroying my robot. Napalm Death still managed to take the Michael! Though lads, next time through the chassis 1 at a time!

Napalm Death is dead. Long live Napalm Death!

Thanks to everyone for a great day, and for all the congratulations and birthday wishes :D.

Thanks especially to Gary and James for organising and running everything, and to Mrs. Aylward for the lovely cakes.

Congratulations to Joey for winning the fleas (I really must get one built...) and to all the others who did well in the competitions. I was especially impressed with Spyro - an excellent design that had very few weaknesses - and Delirious, which almost certainly would've won the "most original entry" award, had we had one. I was also really impressed with how well Ian Watts' son did. Clearly roboteering success runs in their family!

I look forward to seeing you all in Coventry later in the year!

Thanks to the Aylwards for a brilliantly organised event and everyone else for making it such an enjoyable day. Mike enjoyed driving Tantrum for the first time and had the pleasure of fighting angry bird not once but twice!

Congratulations to Joey and Scott on their wins, both well deserved. A fair amount of carnage yesterday so I've got a fair few repairs to make myself (Thanks Peter and Andy 8) ) Looking forward to Coventry.

Another great event well organised as usual by James and family.
Congrats to Joey and Scot plus all the others that did well.
It was looking like we might get a winner called Dave at one stage but it didn't quite work out for either of them in the end. :(

Thanks to everyone who made this event as great as it was and congratulations for all to all the winners.

Perminant Forever did well on its debut (I may have to practice my driving) a couple of them now need a rebuild (E.B.O.G. as its getting a bit worn out now and Inertiant for obvious reasons :roll: )

But as for Angry Bird, he may now become a mainstay in our team, I think I might just buy a lotto ticket now :lol:

Had such a good day yesterday. Thanks to everyone involved in running the event. I particually enjoyed the annialators :D

Will need to work on my driving as Avenger didn't actually avenge anything yesterday :-?

I'll try and get a youtube video up asap. Looking forward to the next one.

Thanks to James and Gary for putting the event on, well run as usual :)

Well done to Scott and Joey on their victories :)

I'm in firm agreement with Haz: Angry Bird needs to be killed. In the face :)

Forgot to say:

Big thanks to the two Daves for running the fleas whilst James and I sorted out the draw for the AWS.

Someday I'll get round to coding the draw into AntLog...
