Well that's bit shit but I would hate to do the drive then realise that it's too wet.

I am away next weekend. I guess no one is keen for easter long long weekend? I was considering coming up to see the venue on the Thursday if that's possible.

Nice block of wood Smile

Easter weekend won't work for me, anyway refer to my previous dates if you want to know when I'm available.

I'm currently in the material sourcing stage for the new beetle Smile

This just topped off my awesome night XD

Rode home in the wet from a night out at like midnight, saturated as hell, food poisoned from the most rank korean bbq, put killer back together over the course of an hour then read this haha! FUGG. That'll learn me not to check the internets first.

But yes fair enough, tis pretty wet. Whenever is okay for me aside from early - mid april (due to uk)

edit - that is the lamest attempt at a robot ever aaron hahaaha! What have you been doing for the last month and a bit Razz

I have no particular plans at this stage, so whenever is good.
weeknight event is also not an insanely bad idea.
Perhaps limited rounds though. (9:00PM knockoff would be the latest I could do)

Week night could be done, but will require a tight schedule and for everyone to get their shit together. Bring spare batteries to swap in and out instead of waiting for chargers and limit the amount of time between rounds for repairs.

6PM - 9PM is probably the threshold I can put together by balancing the time it takes from getting back from work and to how late I can piss the neighbours off.

I have 1000w of flood lights on a tripod I can bring.

There are also the lights for inside the arena.

I wonder about just running it over a few days, IE don't try and compress an entire comp into 3 hours, run 3 rounds in that time, then another 3 another week (or whatever) then run the finals.
