Yeah, I've been using one of those plastic roller chair mats and it seems to work well.

Huge turn out, looks like Adelaide is full of sleeper of bot fighters just needing a wake up call.

Thanks for hosting James, it was a really fun night. It was fantastic to have the new faces along, and the melees with 8 or nine bots were insane. The kids really got into it as well which was great to watch.

March bot fight night!




An excellent turn out this month, with James2 hosting this time round. Great job hosting James!
The arena was also upgraded for this meet. Better Arduino control, an extra pit and permanent legs were some of the improvements.



This fight night, we had a tournament of 1v1 matches with one bot coming out on top. The entrants were:
Chris (me!) - Green Devil
James - Red Dynamo
Owen - The Force
Greg - Botbitz Blue
Steve - Cut Above
Ben - Roach
Mike - Blue Dynamo
Tash/Makayla - Orange Dynamo

In the end, The Green Devil won the tournament for this month! Very Happy
Highlights video can be found here:

Following the tournament, we had several free for all matches with all 8 entrants competing simultaneously.
It was complete chaos, but so much fun! James won the majority with that Orange Dynamo of his. Very Happy
A video of a couple of the matches can be found here:
https://youtu.be/bg5tUwcTkiE



Next Antweight fight night will be on Saturday, the 16th of April, starting at 6pm. PM myself or James2 for any details. Or even post on here if you're keen!
As always we will have several spare bots for anyone to join in and have a go!

I've heard of possible prizes for Arpil's tournament too... Razz
We will also have a shield installed on the arena for next month, so bring on the spinners!

We now have a shield for our Adelaide antweight arena!

It's made up of 3mm polycarbonate (from Kinda Plastics in Para Hills West - thanks for the suggestion Steve!) with 3mm aluminium angle to hold it together. It also has a couple cut outs for the remote boxes and a couple hatches to throw the bots in.

Now we're all set for the next fight night in two weeks! April 16, 6pm folks!





Don't mind the messy look of the second pic, it's still very dusty and the daylight shows that shit up really well!
