    More a question for James, but anybody else feel free to answer. Luna-tics lift is
    a linear actuator, 10mm/s. (No load). Will I be needing a safety bar. Didn't need one for the live events, but best to check than fail the safety test. I fear that more than the spinners!!!

    No you wont need a locking bar for that. Good luck

    Hey guys, my second robot's driver is sorted now, and I've emailed James. I was heavily considering Jamie's advice of just dropping the second bot out to let someone else in, but since this person didn't manage to get in with their robot, I think this is a good solution. Looking forward to this weekend!

    The sign up sheet said Friday afternoon, with Friday morning set aside for testing and tech check. James, can you confirm?

    Also for those that are new to it and want to load in via the loading doors; head to car park N12 first thing in the morning (they start the process at 8am but you see a small queue building before then). Security will take some details and ask where you're going. Just say you're unloading stuff for the Robot Arena stand/door 20.2 at Insomnia. They'll give you a loading pass valid for fifteen minutes; head to the door (an NEC site map is handy to have), unload your stuff, then pop your cars back round in the main car park. They'll have an allocated one(s) for Insomnia, just ask.

    Still have to pay for parking I'm guessing? Plus we can go back and to from our cars throughout the day? If so I'll just bring my HW trolley to ferry stuff.
