sunday 5th may robot club 2

Post by Kyro » Tue Apr 16, 2019 1:32 pm

hello, not my event but i have been asked to post here.

on sunday 5th may, a few of us are planning to get together for a small event.

this is based in a back garden so spaces are limited to 10 more teams.

the rules are as follows, no high velocity weapons due to the arena not being suitable for this (subject to change depending on whether our new arena is completed in time) you are welcome to bring bots with high velocity weapons but the weaponry is not allowed to be used unless said arena is ready.

size and weight limits are not strict (as long as its roughly ant sized and feels to be antweight, its allowed)

there is no limit to the amount of bots you bring so feel free to bring as many as you like.

we will be ordering some pizza's during this event.

please let me know via reply if you will be attending and please fill out the following per bot you will be bringing

https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIp ... g/viewform

this event is not an official event and is merely a small event mainly for testing bots and for socializing.

i hope to see you there.

i will post an update regarding the arena build progress as soon as its available.

Sorry, I'd completely forgotten to fill out the thing. I'll be bringing Jiggy Sawdust, Jammin' Good with Weird and Flippy, and Pushbot from Mars. I'll upload pics to the Google doc when I'm home - I can't rename them on my phone... Actually I might be able to. Gimme a min.
I also don't have a pic of Pushbot as he's currently in peices on the table undergoing a few modifications
