    The plan is the 21st but since they're still finalizing the details I suppose it's not 100% certain yet. It's also being held in Sheffield so it would be particularly harsh for the notherners if they...

    There's no spinners at Grantham, but that floor flipper of theirs can mess you up as badly as anything. I'll try not to get us both caught on it this time Lucy. :roll:

    In case you haven't seen it yet, Extreme Robots have released a plan regarding how they plan to run events. They specifically mention a non-spinner HW division, so if you don't want to...

    Hopefully the extra weight of the new axe will help a little with the wheelspin issue as well. Any chance we'll be able to see it at Grantham or Bolton? (I can't make Portsmouth)
