It may take me a while to get there and I have fears I will be late.

So is leaving it until 8pm the evening before the AWS to get the robots out of the cupboard cutting it a bit fine? :P

In the event, they were all in the same state as when I put them away - mostly working - so just some batteries to top up & we're ready to go. Oh, and Shadow's getting a bit of a make-over...

Aiming to arrive before 10 to get Antlog set up before the hoards arrive...

Well, it took me until yesterday evening to start putting Jigsaw together (!) but it is working, again. New motors, new controller, and no more running it in the hotel room the night before as that seemed to curse it last time...

We're both looking forward to tomorrow now, everything is ready and we're feeling surprisingly good about it all. It'll be good to see everyone again and talk robots :) Good luck to everyone!

Not going to lie my nerves have started to kick in,seeing as it's my first robot tournament ever.

Early start for me to get the train hoping to arrive in Basingstoke around 8:30 and at the venue by 9ish.

Been going over my checks now.

Family and friends wishing me best of luck.

see you guys tomorrow.

I'm not really nervous at all. If I go out I go out so what it ain't about winning its the fun :D I hope I ain't late but I may be as it takes 3-4 hours to get there and I'm setting off at half 6. I will be with my mum and my mates are wishing me the best of luck so all I can say is you lot should all do well and I will have great fun trying to win. See you lot tommorow :wink:

Old habits, I like to give myself a safe margin of time when I'm going somewhere, and I said 9ish but might slip to 9:30 if I'm a little lost or theres a delay on the train.

I am on the train to Basingstoke and arrive at 9.36. Is anyone else arriving that wants to share a taxi to the venue?
