Potentially we could host an event during any open day if this goes well. If it goes extremely well we could have even more days available than that.

That said, the next open day is being held during the Heavyweight UK Championships and so there will be no event during that open day as im away. Plus going forward there may be a rotation with Beetleweights so everyone can have an opportunity to host an event there - otherwise though, for the forseeable future its a permanent exhibit

The road we finally turn into and presumably park on the map posted seems to be fenced off and the next one after it is marked as an exit.
It might just be that google is out of date but can you just confirm which is correct and is the parking free.


I looked myself I think you can go down the road you think is an exit cause theres no other road into that car park, also the building from what I've seen has an entrance on the other side with the unwalled car park.

Hi, would it be possible to get a contact phone number for someone (probably via PM) so that if we encounter any delays on our journey or get lost in the University I can update you.

Thanks

I've got a couple of people who are asking for the link for the live stream. Do you have a live stream link ready for the event?

Yup, my number is 07849 898092 - just introduce yourself as a roboteer.

I done a quick video for people unsure after looking at the map - i really should have washed my windscreen but hope its abit of help.

The entrance to the university is marked along the route on white road signs saying "Universities at Medway". Similarly when coming from the A2, youll see loads of Brown Anchor signs for the Historic Dockyards which is across the road - the University has a massive Robot Wars banner up at the front gate, you should see it.

With regards to the live stream ive encounted a problem. I tried a trial run last night, and the software you need to run it kept crashing on my Macbook. I tried some other software but then it wouldnt recognise my cameras. Ive sent an email to my Universities IT support but im not sure what else i can do atm - if theres someone with knowledge of live streams whose willing to help me out (or potentially has the equipment) then that would be fantastic and a massive help.

Otherwise, everything else is in place - theres a reserved area for roboteers to watch aswell now.

Just wanted to say a big thankyou to Gareth for running a great event, I certainly had a lot of fun.

Yes another great event and a good venue.
Running one group at a time for each level overcame the problems we have experienced in the past of two rooms as each team just took their robot for that group to the fight area.
Thanks to Garfie489 for organizing it every one seemed to have a good time.

Thanks for a fun day, we all really enjoyed ourselves. It was great to see some impressive robots in the arena, and such a great community spirit.
Looks like I'm going to need to brush up my CAD skills and hopefully bring something a bit more competitive to the next event we attend.

Here are the results I had to split them into 2 posts as you cant attach more than 3 files.
Have now found a way to host the pictures on my Microsoft OneDrive and link them into the forum thanks to my daughter.
