    A massive thanks from me to everyone who attended today, we ended up with nearly double the number of competitors from the pilot! Despite the issues we were having with the arena floor (clearly, the masking tape over the join between the floor boards was the overall winner of the event :P), we had spectacular fights and a range of fun and interesting designs. Special mention to the Stolen Concept vs Voodette fight for being so memorable!

    I mentioned this briefly but we are looking to run BotFest 3 on the 14th of September this year - there is a community centre about 10 minutes up the road which have expressed an interest in having BotFest there so I'll be taking with them next week to see what they would be happy with (it may end up being a BW non-spinner and AW event, we'll have to see). I'll be looking into building a new arena as well to address the issues that cropped up with this one - I'll be moving offices soon so probably end up using the existing arena as a testing arena.

    Keep an eye out for the next event!

    Thanks for the kind words both of you!

    It was a fantastic event!! Everyone was so lovely, but I think the best part was the amount of fights we all got; 7 + whiteboards/melees is nothing short of fantastic, especially considering the amount of robots signed up! Great as usual, I'll mark the next one in my diary

    Thanks Michael

    Sorry, Lucy

    The forum's being a little tricky to edit posts on.
