Motorama 2013 Day One

I will post more once I get some sleep: those concrete floors and six-plus hours of robot fighting really take it out of you! That said, I am pleased as punch. Lolcat went 3-1 and took second place (it beat my friend Sean McKeown’s fairyweight, a disabled Keres, and Toni Fowlie’s fairyweight box and lost to the eventual winner). Cannon also took second, going 4-2 (it beat Toni’s ant box, Swamp Woman 2, Low Blow, and Algos then lost to Low Blow twice in the finals).

Both robots performed well, but both are in such a state that they should probably be rebuilt. It was worth all the effort I put into building them, though.

Here is a fight:

Note that we have several official videographers this year: I’ll be able to link all my fights to the full event report. Also note that my hotel Internet is terrible, so I will post these incremental reports when I get the chance.
