    Ooh! Exciting times! Looking forward to it, finally seem to have Pullover at 100% and want to see what it can do except lose embarrassingly

    Many thanks to everyone who came to BotFest 3! It is always great to see new and returning faces come to this tiny little event. We had 25 robots enter this time and a whole host of excellent fights. The grand final, particularly, was spectacular. Many thanks to 5upercrab for the pit floor donation. We'll have the video of the event up soon.

    For 2020, I am looking to have BotFest 4 at the end of March though not committing to anything concrete just yet, I am planning on making some changes to the event. Keep an eye out!

    Seconded, a big thankyou to Lucy.

    Feeling fired up to make a new ant now! Happy with Gremlin's performance today (especially after the upgrade courtesy of Paul) but definitely need something meatier than a pusher next time out!

    Good to catch up and see you all March-ish!

    Thanks for hosting Lucy, had a great time & definitely happy with another podium finish! Will hopefully be at the next one, but will definitely have to make something new since Please Shut Up's chassis probably can't take many more spinner fights.

    Another very fun event, well done to everyone some great intense fights as well!

    Hopefully by next time I'll have sorted Bombastic's flipper problems to put up more of a fight for people, after a bit of examination I think that the servo was actually smacking the arms into the chassis on the way down and repeatedly bending the linkage as a result until it shattered
