Can you believe that this will mark the third year anniversary of the "UK Robo-One".

How time flies when you are having fun.

Can't wait, maybe we should have some sort of 'theme' this time.

You are most welcome - we have advertised your presence, and I suspect that there will be the usual huge interest in your bipeds. If no Biped competition as such, then a few demo sessions would be good, in between other events.

We are now no longer coming along. We haven't made much visual improvement on the bots and I've a million home DIY jobs to do that I keep postponing.

The November meet should be more likely.

I will be at a wedding on that day. Unfortunately it is too far away from Birmingham to be able to pop in on the way. Shame because it will be the only one I have missed since we started these UK meetups 3 years ago.

Hope you all have a great time and take loads of Vids & Pics.

A great time was had by all at this years event, which was also well attended by visitors who were astonished by (and sometimes terrified by) Orac's Sir Kit.

Sonic Robobuilder Huno suffered a thigh injury:

And an unplanned football/kung-fu all in one match ended in exhaustion by all
