U3A National Robot Challenge.

We attended an extremely well planned event organised by Cannock Chase U3A, on Thursday, 3rd October, in Stafford.
Teams had travelled from Dawlish, North London, and Grantham, to to give you an idea of the spread of interest in this first ever event.
Our team, attempted 5 of the 6 challenges, and came away with a very creditable second place. We were fortunate in that we had been able, through simplified design, to have a robot that required no tinkering throughout the competition.
We came away buzzing with excitement at our success, and with quite a few plans for next year.
