yes i had been hoping for something that was easy to set up but could get people talking and actually get people to have a reason to enter in these type of events.

you would actually be amazed at how shoddy some things are but used in the right way make a big impact and everything was so cheap to get hold of or make just took time sourcing items and doing some math on the pitch size as i had to shorten it slightly due to space mainly but it works so well just really needs final touches on and its complete.

would really be good if enough people showed up as promised to make it a big day out for everyone and people who are just curious in the hobby could have fun.

i was planning on bringing a video camera to record the event day but i am unable to now so was hoping to all the people going to the event if anyone has one it would be great if they could bring it.

yea i am finishing off cosmetic items mainly on my bioloid now my football program works and i have a throw in to go with tho its a bit tempramental with regards to actually picking the ball up i am still confident.

the fighting moves im really going to work on soon as i have stock moves but really want something to wow the people :D lets hope it goes well

thank you all for coming and helping out with the event it was a shame not more people could turn up but hopefully once people see the videos from the day and the photoes... (all authentic...) :D then we can get more people.

hopefully we can do more events with more people interested in taking part if people had any ideas of what events would be great to set this up at then please dont hesitate and let me know...

Thanks for organising the event. I was great to see old friends, and new people, and bots.

Super work on the soccer pitch. That surface seems ideal.

The lively audience that the Birmingham venue makes it rather special, but I would be interested in other events.
