Likewise. EricA is in bits, so even though I had planned to make it a precision-engineered ant, it's now going to be a complete hot glue job in the Travelodge. Can't beat it :lol:

See you there 8)

Hi Joey,

Sorry for the late notice, but I may not make it with the full amount of ants I entered. The Shapeways order that I was promised would be here 2 weeks ago still hasn't showed up! Now I have to make them by hand. I will definitely have two, and hopefully should manage to stick four together. But just to let you know I may be turning up a bit light tomorrow. I should be able to let you know by tonight at the latest.

I got the messages Rhys, thanks, hope to see you tomorrow ^^

I've had a very nice meal this evening with Jamie, Tony, Paul, Alex, Will and Simon and co., and I'll be getting an early night so anybody who wants me on the day please ring me as I won't be checking the forums until late afternoon at least. The very best of luck to all of you, and have a safe journey and a good time and I hope to see you all tomorrow! :)

and P.S. a happy early birthday to Jordan!

Warm up: Cosmos (Rhys Williams) won (I'm a bit tired and can't recall the other placings, sorry >_<)

FWS: 1st Tesla 2 (Will Thomas)
2nd Little Devil (Dave Weston)
3rd Deflea (Peter Waller)

AWS: 1st A Little Bit Of Fail (Andrew Hibberd)
2nd Quake (Will Thomas)
3rd Antidisestablishmentarianism (Danny Sharples - first event too!)

Thanks so much to everyone who came, especially Dave Lawrie, Andy Smelczerczyk, Will Thomas, and Andy Jackson for helping with the running of the event (along with all others whom I've forgotten - you know who you are!) and Peter for bringing his arenas and soldering Jigsaw back together, and Jamie and Tony for giving me a lift back home on Saturday night. It was a fantastic experience and one I'm still on a high from, despite my robots getting smashed to various degrees - Jigsaw shall most definitely rise again though, I can't bear to leave it broken and it'll be redone for Richmond or Kidderminster.

Thanks to all of you once again ^___^
Joey

P.S.: Craig, I've got your Li-Ion charger adaptor

Great event, thanks everyone. Particularly enjoyed meeting the new guys, who were all brilliant, but kudos HAS to go to Danny for coming third! Some amazing driving skills.

I have brought home all the results with me. I'll type them up (probably tomorrow) and get them online ASAP.

Congrats to Andy Hibbard for winning and doing so well in general. I know I picked on him a bit but its only cos I'm so impressed. He's pretty unstoppable.

See you all in Bristol :-)

I know you love me really Dave :D

Thanks to Joey, Simon, Pete, Dave and Craig for a great event. The few days I got to prepair for the event really helped. Not building robots on the day makes it a more enjoyable day.

Complexity was a wonder to behold, we need more spinners( and walkers ):D
TEAM GEEK!
