Another great event, Thanks to Erica, Steve, the Martin clan and everyone else involved in organisging this.

Was nice to see so many new people. Hopefully they compete again in the future.

A decent crowd considering the crazy weather and they got into it. Hopefully put on a half decent show. Feedback I herd was positive.

Pack up was a breeze, we were out before Midnight and that was a shocker. Nice work to all who helped out Saturday making Sunday easier. Not sure we would have got it all done if there was an arena to assemble.


@Daniel, Will you be able to make nationals?


Just over two months until Nationals :S

Hi all,

I thoroughly enjoyed watching the first session with my family.

After chatting with the builders I have decided to make my first robot for the Canberra competition.

The set-up and packing went even smoother this time. Next time, I will have the lighting set up more streamlined; the moving lights will have daisy-chained power and data cables cut to length and trunked together for neatness. There is no need for any power boards on the roof and just one short extension cable.

Just got home this evening and am dead on my feet so this will be short and only vaguely coherent, but massive thanks to Erica, Steve (and his parents!), Nick, and everyone else involved in building/fighting/organising the event. Owen and I had an absolute blast, and we're really looking forward to doing it all again in Canberra. Special thanks to Steve for letting Owen drive Saw Thing - he was telling everyone on the way home (hotel staff, taxi drivers, airport/airline staff) about his win. I've really gotta get two bots ready for August now Shocked

good event!

massive thanks to everyone involved Smile
It was good to finally get back into it, even if it was with a very last minute robot.
A few minor improvements should make it pretty good for future sportsman comps.

There appears to be a bit wrong with the fights as well as the winners due to all the last minute changes no doubt.

Session 1, Fight 1 was twitch and someone. Twitch lost (vs Disasssembler? Twitch ended up upside down and cut its own Rx wire))

Session 2 I believe was Zenghiaro and twitch. Twitch won. (non spinning saw repeatedly hit the top of the bot, judges decision, twitch did more pushing)

Season 3 Twitch won (video evidence of Warboy upside down for quite some time https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fwTD0Tv1cKI&list=PLd8803VEK-ULlkmv0v4vwJWXAvYyetmoe&index=1)

Session 4 was the 3 way that twitch won (judges decision no one went great)

Sadly my demo/filler against Angus wouldn't count Sad, that was fun if not somewhat costly.


At some point Repent defeated HellaMax https://youtu.be/V9NLDwERiMo?list=PLd8803VEK-ULlkmv0v4vwJWXAvYyetmoe&t=7

In the first session First Pick beat Zenghiaro by audience decision (which was fair enough, given that 10 seconds in I smoked the ESC and got stuck in reverse on that side for the rest of the bout)

Oh, and in session 2 Saw Thing beat Citizen flips (just showed that clip to Owen's class this afternoon Very Happy )
Edit: and it's uploaded. I've also put up my fight against First Pick and I've got a few more to go up, but my internet is being rather slow at the moment.
