Yeh guys we aren't doing too well with the campaign. If everyone can share it, especially to people interested in spectating or businesses which would be keen to have some advertising on the arena.

Without this being successful I will be forced to cancel the event.

The Panda is cheering up - we are now over 1/3 of the way to the target Smile. I registered Shiny for demo matches, but anything is possible after the UK event.

You could gear the beater down to 400rpm and compete Razz

That's not that bad of an idea - a slow rotary lifter would be really annoying to face! Razz OR replace the blade with a flap of thick rubber or something and run a little faster Razz

Rotary lifters work decently well, though they can tend to turn into rammers when you're not getting much bite- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H2lOjOWIr2Q

Ahhhh big public events.. always lure you back into the game Very Happy

On a note though with Steve and Angus (not ignoring others contributions) but as main EOs going to all the effort over the past few years in getting this little hobby more known i think we all should be able to make a somewhat decent effort to make this the best it could possibly be.. what more of an opportunity could the sport get in Australia with a great location to be noticed and put on a show that well people haven't seen in a long time since old school robot wars on tv.

Get KEEN! Very Happy

$1780 to go.

Get those entries in guys!
Remember, with possible, you only have to pay when the project is green lighted at the end of the campaign. So if your tight on cash, you have 18 days! (plus about 2 weeks payment time). Getting you entry in now ensures the event happens!

Mine are in, is there any other way to help short of donating money I don't have and spamming facebook?
