There are quite a few sockets but if you can then it’s wise to bring an extension lead too, a long one if possible, you don’t restrict yourself on where your bench has to be.
A fold up seat is a good idea too, for any events, just in case.

Will Antfreeze 7 be live streamed? If not will team panoramic be posting this to yt later?

I wish I could make it but being in the US puts a damper on my ability to attend.

Thank you and I wish everyone the very best luck! I can't wait to watch!

Sorry but no it won’t be streamed.
Team Panoramic usually film it but I’m not certain yet.
I have a video camera but can’t find the power supply, if I do then I’ll use that otherwise I’ll see what else can be done.

Everything going to plan for this weekend, I’m going to phone the venue tomorrow and try and get an extension to 6pm.
There should be a projector this year which will be great, also something I’ve been working on which will be a surprise on the day....
Loads of robots signed up, please don’t forget it’s £2 per robot to enter the qualifiers for the main tournament, this will all go toward the venue hire and insurance.
Free tea and coffee - bring a mug as we may run short! - also please try and bring something for the snack bench like a packet of biscuits or whatever.

I still can’t believe it’s now into its seventh year! Let’s make it a good one

Just noticed that the A4303 at Lutterworth is closed so if like me you are coming up the M1 from the south you need to get off at junction 18 and then follow the A5 from there rather than junction 20 which I usually use..
