    Looking forward to more events myself, and meeting some more of the cool people surrounding the spobby, I'm definitely going to try and make at least a couple of them.

    Myself and Colin (Team Death) will definitely be there for September event, and probably as many after that as possible. I know you're only looking at whiteboard matches for the September date, but are you accepting, or rather can the arena contain, spinners for this event?

    Yes the Beetle arena can demo featherweights so please bring any along. There will be some stuff to play with. We also hope to be able to give more information about the Robodojo Featherweight arena.

    Hi folks,
    We have several events scheduled before Christmas.

    Next event is an Antweight event on Sunday 21st October. Waiting for confirmation but hopefully this will be a collaboration between Robodojo and Sheffield Uni Roboteers. We know this is just after AWS but we want to offer an alternative for folk who either can't make the AWS date or for whom it's too far to travel.

    Then in November on Sunday 25th We are holding our first Featherweight event; apologies for the date confusion in an earlier post. This will feature both full combat and a new sportsman class competition (see seperate post for ruleset) in the featherweight arena that many people will have fought in at Gadget show live, Insomnia and many other events run by Robochallenge, but which is now the Robodojo Arena.

    Our last event of the year will be the Christmas social on Sunday 16th December.
    Signups for the Antweight and Featherweight events will go up in just over a weeks time.

    There has been also been some interest in a family event. I'm looking into this and wil post further when I have a date and a venue.

    Hello Ian,
    There seems to be some conflicting event dates.
    Your earlier message say's 20th Oct for AW and 21st for BW. However your last message states 21st Oct for AW's with no revised date for BW's - Can you please confirm the next BW event please?
