Map now added to the first post, best approach is from the M42.
I`ll try and write some directions when I know the road numbers but google maps should be your best bet.

hi I’m not sure wether this is the place to ask but I’ve just nearly completed my first ant Tlalocayotl and I’m having some struggles getting the transmitter and receiver to connect I’ve watched all the videos on how to do it but I’ve had no luck I was wondering if someone at the event could help me connect them because my only other radio set doesn’t have a failsafe

I've decided not to close the sign ups so don't worry about missing deadlines.
Entries can still be made at the event and of course there's the games too which are open entry anyway.
Looks like it could be the biggest Ant Freeze yet!

Hi All,

Its been a regrettably long time since i last went to one of these so this seems like a good opportunity to kick 2018 off to a good fresh start and get back in the game.
I will be bringing an old one as my others are still in bits but im looking forward to the day! :D

Hi,

Im trying to sign up but i need to add a new antweight to antlog but im getting back the response "database is locked" is there an issue with the system at the moment or am i missing something?
Otherwise i could do a work-around and sign up another of my ants thats already in the database so at least i have something in the system for this event.

Thanks
Matt

Dont worry if you can`t sign up, come anyway and we`ll do it there.

I`ve just pm'd Gary to see if there is a problem with antlog.

I had assumed you don't need my arena but just thought I ought to make sure.

Thanks Pete, mine is still ok. I`ve had to turn the main floor over this time so its nice and clean, the original side is like a plowed field :D

Thanks, much appreciated. I did try to add a new ant again but got the same response. Never mind, will see you Saturday!

Yeah, I've had the same problems as well unfortunately >_< all an accessory to the main experience though - I'll be here and looking forward to seeing everyone again! I've been too busy with work to get any actual ants working, but I've rustled up a flea which will probably not last very long but be hopefully amusing (and shiny) in the process...

My ant is ready though wherever it'll live longer than 10 seconds is another matter... it is not exactly precision built. :P See you all there tomorrow!

Car died on the way but managed to get to a lift. Will be there around 10 though so any repairs I've offered ahead of time may be a little tight
