Thread: Team Kaizen Build Diary

  1. #251
    I'm going to the Dojo this Sunday (12th) & Ian mentioned that they're keeping the arena up over the next few weeks so it's definitely going ahead. If they haven't been it touch it's most likely because they're busy setting up for this one. If anyone wants advance info just shout. (Note you'll need to take personal toiletries & masks/gloves etc for social distancing reasons).

    Go get 'em.

    I'm hoping to get along on the 12th too James and opted to help with putting up of the arena,any idea what

    time on Saturday they will start erecting as I have not heard anything-Maybe its up already?.

    Ian did say he wasn't one for to and fro messaging but I think it's vital to keep

    in touch but I will go along Saturday afternoon if I don't hear anything .

    Hey Colin

    I was under the impression that the arena was being built tomorrow starting at 2pm. Ian did mention he was getting the units cleared up & ready today so I imagine he hasn't had chance to message you with the details yet.

    See you Sunday

    Azriel
    Locking pin has been fitted, wheels have been better secured to the robot and nyloc nuts fitted to the axe arm. Azriel 1.0 is officially "finished" with a little under a week to go before the event. It is a big transformation over the 0.9 variant seen last year and I'll be honest, I am rather pleased with it. For those that didn't see it before, here is the 0.9 variant...

    ...and here is the 1.0 variant.

    If there are any tidying up jobs to do, it's probably on the front wedge panel. I had hoped to stage a mock battle between Azriel and The Honey Badger 1.0 as it was a little over three years ago that I (re)started my foray into fighting robot combat at RL Grantham 2017 (1st and 2nd of July of that year! How does time fly?) but that didn't happen.

    I'll see if I can get someone to record what happens at Dojo.

    Alex was recording all of the fights yesterday so I presume he'll do the same next week.

    So I ended up not being able to go to Dojo in the end and if I am being honest, I can't see when I'll be able to again in the future. Since it is hosted on a Sunday, I am often committed elsewhere. This week was supposed to be an exception to that but for reasons I shall not go into here, I wasn't able to so at the moment I am feeling pretty low about it all.

    With things the way they are in the world at the moment, I honestly cannot see the bigger events starting up again this year. I've been trying to work on Jibril's Scythe gearbox in case that turns out not to be the case but... yeah...

    That's a shame, I was looking forward to your report on the event Lucy but it looks like the

    event took place and going by the the You tube videos thus far Telekinesis gave most bots

    a good thrashing.

    From what I've seen/been told Get Shrekt, Telekinesis & Captain Jack took 1st, 2nd & 3rd respectively & 3 robots caught fire, so you might have dodged a bullet.

    Still really sucks that you aren't able to make it to the Dojo's though Lucy, if I find out about any other events I'll keep you posted.

    Sorry to hear that Lucy. I've always hoped to see one of your robots at Dojo. Hopefully there'll be some non-sunday events at some point!
