If table space is limited I can bring a small workbench if that would help? Can bring a couple of 4-plug extension cords too.

You are welcome to bring the workbench for yourself but you'd need to be able to maintain distance between each other when setup. The church, handily, has spots on the floor where they place chairs for the service on a Sunday. This effects a grid pattern.

The two extra slots have been filled. I'll sort out the draw later on, there will be 8 groups rather than 4 this time as there are 35 robots in this one.

Extremely excited for the bigger tournament, remember if you need any help with the spreadsheet or hosting in general I'm more than happy to help.

Feels great finally having something to prepare for, the bots are looking quite dusty and depressed at the moment.

Please find attached the group draws, please tell me if you have two or more robots in the same group but I don't think that is the case here.

Image

As previous events, it will be a "everyone fights everyone 1v1" in that group with each match being a maximum of two minutes.

The 8th slot to go into the quarter finals will be filled by a last chance rumble with each team picking a bot to put in if still operational of course. This match will last until last one stands though we'll be stopping at each time someone is pitted or otherwise disabled to prevent a large amount of people being around the arena for a long period of time.

Important: Though I am still hoping this event is going to take place (and that is still the case at present), I've seen in the news today that there is the potential for the number of people who can socialise to be reduced quite significantly from 30 to 6 in England as I understand it (ref). I don't know if this includes sport events but I am hoping it doesn't. I'll be keeping an eye on the news for updates but the chance is there that this could be postponed yet again.

The image for the draws isn't showing for me. Fingers crossed we can go ahead this month but if not then we all have time to further refine our designs at least.
