Shangalaing: the antweight open would probably be great for a first event. Everything's a bit more relaxed than at an aws and I'm planning on running a few games events like football, tag team and others. Can't wait to see what you build. :)

Thanks! One is almost done, an all servo flipper. The next I'm printing out tomorrow which is a spinner. Not sure if I will get it done in time, should know by Wednesday.

How long does the event usually run? I live up north and need to be heading back for a hockey game around 3.30pm. Will I miss out on much?

The main competition should be done by then. You'd probably just miss the after games.

Just a quick reminder to sign up ASAP.
There are several people who have said they are coming but not signed up.
Hogi has enough things to sort out so really does need to get an idea of how many people and robots are coming.
So far only 14 robots.

Signed up for two robots. They don't have wheels or armour yet but they will be there!

Sadly I can't make it now, I've come down with a stinking cold - so I'd best keep it to myself! :(

Hope the day goes well!
