Re: Brighton Modelworld 2012 - 24-26 February

If places are still available, I'd like to help out where possible on one of the days.

I can bring one or two robots with me which i don't mind people driving (if people can work tank steering!)

I can help out on Saturday 25th and possibly Friday 24th.

Thanks :D
