I'm definitely interested. If I go I'll be travelling up from Newbury, Berkshire. Happy to share lifts with peeps from Reading, Basingstoke, Southampton, Swindon etc. Can take five Peter Pans plus all the kit you want to take.

Need to verify attendance with She Who Knows All.

Edit: Will be going up from Bristol. Offer of lifts still applicable but attendance is by no means definite

Birmingham is reachable from Oxford. If I was at home that weekend Oxford would be on my way to Birmingham and as such I'd offer you a lift. As it is we'll be in Bristol Friday night and it doesn't make sense to go to Oxford before going to Birmingham. And unfortunately I need to pick up Jo on the way home from Bristol so I won't even be returning that way.

Trains from Oxford to Birmingham are probably pretty frequent (check out http://www.nationalrail.co.uk/ or http://www.thetrainline.co.uk/) and I think it's a direct line. Car is very easy too as it's pretty much one motorway (freeway) all the way to Birmingham.

Of course this gives me a little over a week to get my Bioloids running!

I've just noticed that this event is not mentioned on the ThinkTank web site.

Is this a Bad Thing?

Hi guys,

Had an idea about a swap shop at Robogames so if anybody has any spare robo bits and bobs then bring them along.

I will be travelling up with Manoi from near Oxford.

Won't know if I can offer lifts until Friday afternoon as my main car is having some work done.
