I suppose everybody’s been having their club fairs recently :smiley: . We had all of the scoring objects out from previous years along with some of the goals. We made a nice display, and looped some video (video of our robots and this year’s game “animation”). We also had a robot from last year driving around, one on display (as we had salvaged some parts from it over the summer), and a mini-robot for the… erm… cuteness factor supposedly. We also drove the robot around the other booths, certainly an eye-catcher. Just be careful when driving it that nobody steps on it, so, depending on the venue, it may or may not be appropriate.

CHEERS, loads of good content there :smiley:
