The next major event will be the Robotics meet at the ThinkTank theatre in Birmingham, piggy-backing on the Micromouse event in June 2009.

This event is not certain (as far as I know) and there are certainly discussions occurring about smaller local meets. Myself, RandomMatt, BillB, AnotherMattBillBKnows and iBot are all around Berkshire/Hampshire so there is a strong possibility of a mini-meet there.

I run the UK Robot Builders group. We build full size robots like R2D2s and Daleks. We meet once or twice at Articole Studios in north Hertfordshire (I own Articole Studios - www.articolestudios.co.uk ) - we are planning a meet in February 2009 - would Robo One owners be interesting in coming along and showing off their Robots etc?

Sounds like a great idea, although I wouldn't be available until the second half of the month.

Ok guys ...its now official - the next meet of the Uk Robot Builders Group will be on the 28th of February at Articole Studios in North Herstfordshire - 5 mins from junction 10 of the A1
The Uk Robot Builders new website is here http://ukrobotbuilders.proboards.com.
We have been running as a group for three years and meet once or twice year. We have guys (and galls) who build full size R2D2s, Daleks etc etc - we also have a toy designer amongst us.
Articole Studios (www.articolestudios.co.uk) build props in fibreglass & foam for the entertaiment business. We clear the workshop and put down a smooth board floor and sort out a few flat benches for everyone to put things on. We spend the day looking at each others work, drinking tea and coffee and with a few Robo Ones we will have some more fun.
Who wants to come and play for a day...??

Sounds interesting

I'll do what I can to attend. Hope to have my RN up and running again by then.

R2D2's Daleks....? How about some fully operational C-3PO's :lol:

We are going to be exhibiting some robots at the Bett exhibition in Olympia next week. So while not a proper robotic event, it is an opportunity for those who dont yet have a humanoid to come by and check out the robots up and close.
