Then came the looser's melee's, which didn't happen for F.I.N, because as soon as Actiave was called, I tapped the transmitter
stick and F.I.N shot forward and over the edge, leaving Combatant and Ratio Atque Usus to fight for their place in the next
Baby Hell, with its limited mobility, lasted longer than F.I.N did, before it was immobilised by a hit from MBY which
took out my battery pack (and the hit recoilled and knocked out everyone else bar Ant-Lifter!).
So I was out of the main competiton, but for fun I entered into the Tag Team, With F.I.N teaming with The Killer
Sandwich From Mars, one of the host's (Dave Lawrie) robots. Unfortunatly we got drawn against the formiddable MBY and the
just dethroned champion DBA! After choosing the unwise tactic to go head on, I paid the inevitable consequence and promply
got my wheel take off by DBA, then the other one by MBY, and finally turned over by DBA's vertical disk!
In our second tag match, I had a case of Deja Vu, when the TX stick was tapped, out shot F.I.N!
So thats what happened at my first event. A dismal failiure ? No, because the experience has taught me shedloads, and
I will be back at the next one better than ever.
