Hey all - I was at the last Nuneaton event just to watch. I was going to be entering this AWS but I've been so busy with work I doubt it will be finished in time. I messed up the armour last night and have to start it again :(

I'll definitely be ready for the next event though! I'll post some pics and progress soon.

Gary-we should be there to set tables out at about 9AM so if you could arrive any time around then that would be great :)

I'm slightly worried that Boomstone is going to be a Tombstone/ Bad Idea style machine...

I see the fleaweight competition is now on antlog so you can sign up your fleas as well as your ants ready for tomorrow.

Even the Nanos should be well stocked on spinners this time; I know of at least 5 that are hopefully being entered.

6 teams signing up the night before an event is a bit much.

All set for tomorrow :) I did get Inertia 3 working but the ESC didn't like having the drive and disc running at the same time (it's one of the very old Rory boards so I'll let it off) inertia 11 has now morphed into number 12 since I had the chassis already

I appear to have made a slight faux pas in my entries. Pepper is entered as an Ant when it should be a Flea. Sorry to only realise this at such a late point!

Anyway everything is now functional, new mantis is ready to go with experimental auxiliary claws! (it's a lot less fancy than I make it out to be, rest assured)

Sorry guys but looks like we won't be able to make it due to the snow that seems to have settled around here. We've got quite a way to come and can't take the risk. Good luck with the event! :D

That's a shame Ryan/Aaron/Gang. Everyone else travelling round snow, be safe.

Thanks to free hotel wifi the latest state of Antlog sign-ups has been downloaded. :) Anything missing/wrong can easily be added/corrected at the event.

See you all soon :D
