Having shared tthe trip down with Dave Lawrie, we got to the venue a little too early, we managed to beat Oliver there
After entering F.I.N and Baby Hell in the non spinner, I got let down by my driving once again, With F.I.N losing in
succession to Shadow and Valliant, and Baby Hell fairing decidedly better, beating Dead Meat, then loosing to General Mayhem,
beating Not Antlifter, and loosing once again to Flippant.
Onto the main AWS:
F.I.N was up first, and after a miraculos escape from the edge of the arena, managed to get
Dead Meat off the side, with a little luck on my side.
My temporary clusterbot, Hell's Anthology (Little Devil and Zoos!) was up next against Craig Danby's Anto 3, and after
some prancing around, we were both dumped off the edge by the little black bot.
Then came the brown adrenaline moment....Stewie had to fight Mutant.
Mutant had problems with its walking, so I managed to out-manovuer it and push it down the ditch, escaping the encounter
with minor fraying to my flipper edge. Phew!
Next up was Baby Hell, fighting Gross Incompentance, a replay of Baby Hell's first ever fight back in AWS 19. Unfortunately
the result was the same, after being flipped over, and my self righting put me right back into GI's path, and I was abruptly
flipped from the arena.
Second round, and F.I.N was drawn against Combatant, a fight which I was not looking forward to, and with good reason.
After my initial spin up, Combatant hit me and took off one of my nails as well as a small chunk of polycarbonate, but I carried
on irrigardless, but my attemps to move away from Combatant ended up with me driving over the arena edge.
Hell's Anthology was up next, but W/N 2.0 was too much for the clusterbot and LD ended up out of the arena and Zoos!
on its back. Game over for Hell's Anthology
Stewie's second round opponent was Wanted, and with 1 flip it was over, and Stewie was through to its heat final.
Baby Hell's second round oppoent was Craig's comedy entry Badgerbot, who,was pinned into the corner and hacked into by
Baby Hell's axe, and after some additional pressure, Badgerbot was turned over and Baby Hell proceeded to hack into its underbelly,
much to the disgust of Pete Collier. Unable to self right, Baby Hell went through.
Round 3, and F.I.N had to once again fight Dead Meat, and with F.I.N this time in considerably more control, I managed
to take off a wheel and push Dead Meat down the ditch. into the heat 2nd place fight....
