Bristol Bot Builders
« on: July 11, 2018, 06:03:37 PM »
So myself and a few other local people are running events in Bristol, UK now!

https://bristolbotbuilders.com


We've so far run 2 antweight events, both in bars in Bristol, 1 including our Bodgebots tournament, featuring robots made in a few hours that day.

Our next event is BBB3: Beetle Bash, up at UWE on Sunday. In the area and wanna see some robot? Come along! Feel free to message me for details.

This isn't too far away from where I live, I could easily be tempted to come along and have a watch

Hope it goes well, mate. Gutted to be missing this one, especially with the beetles on show.

Very worried this is going to be a quiet one. Has taken the most organising by far but we'll see 🙂

Traveling from London for the event on the day felt like a mistake initially. LIke "jesus **** why am I getting up at 6am" style. But seeing how chill and also well-organised it was made it worthwhile in the end. Was the best event out of the three events I've attended this year. :smile:
