    I was interested to hear any follow up comments about this event but it seems
    strangely quiet, was it a success?, this is important as we do need a venue up
    north.
    I was unavailable and was slightly taken back by the idea of a entry fee-yes
    only £10 but that seemed a phaff through pay pal.
    It's quite costly to build a Robot and attend an event with all the traveling
    and hotel costs so it's probably best to rollout the red carpet for roboteers
    and charge a viewing fee if possible or advertising fee.

    The entry fees all go towards building and maintaining a safe arena/venues for the events to take place, without them the events likely wouldn’t be able to continue - none of the above is cheap

    Other events do have the paying audience (Robots Live/Extreme Robots) but Robodojo is intended more to be a club for the members to meet up and battle robots rather than be a ‘show’ put on for an audience - a lot of US events use this model and it works out well for them, and means that the events are sustainable long term. Even then, the entry fees really are good pricing wise. - it’s not much extra to tack onto your robot budget and the cheapness of hotels/airbnbs in the area more than makes up for it. I personally have zero qualms with it and I’m more than happy to pay per event if it means we have somewhere (much closer to home too) to go play more regularly!

    Having been to the inaugural event the other weekend I can definitely say with zero doubt it’s well worth it per event, and like I say it means we have somewhere up north for antweights, beetleweights and featherweights when most events take place relatively far south for all three classes.
