I always enjoyed watching Robot Wars, even though I wouldn't/couldn't build a fighting robot.
I think most of us enjoy seeing things get bashed. It should be fun to watch others competing, with or without a cup of tea in hand.

Whilst anyone who does not want to play smash the toys in each others prams is termed a "grumpy guts" I feel we are in real danger of having many serious modellers voting with their feet.  Sad.

How about


Springer tug with fire monitor on the front and a water container on the rear?
Challenge is to fill you opponents containers while avoiding getting you own filled.


Winner is the one with the least water in their container.


Obviously the container would have to be a regulation size

I AM TRYING TO DO SPRINGER JOUSTING!! But I cannot figure a way to keep a shield on and the joust without it breaking all the time Ideas??? it should fit a springer tug!

Another idea is a pin on the front of  CLUB 500 AND A balloon on the back...any takers?

Any ideas for the yacht guys other than racing round a set course???

I'm also looking for a tug to tow around a tub of chocolates any takers for that one.

I also think we should resurrect the HAWIAN SHIRT!!!! or STAVROS in a dress!

Guys

This was discussed at great length by the organising committee and it was decided that it was the best simple idea that didn't need any extra equipment to participate with. The whole "battle" would only last 20minutes maximum with 10minute tidy up, they will be in a separate area away from the main display area so no non competing vessel can get involved or any competing vessel to leave the battle zone. This is just a small part of the weekend and there will be plenty of other serious events such as the warship display to commemorate Jutland and WW1 era ships.

Please, please come to the weekend, even if you don't participate in the battle, as the following weekend I'll be flying out again to this hot and dry miserable place for 12 weeks, 12 hour shifts again!!! I will be fighting my own management to get 2017 off because they say I'll be going out again over the time covering Mayhem weekend and I want to see all my good Mayhem friends again just incase.

As per usual on Mayhem, things just get totally out of hand and ends up a fiasco!!!

Its perfectly simple! if you don't want to take part in this spectacle, then don`t!
I`m sorry, but members shouldn't rubbish something just because they think its not for them. For goodness sake, let those who DO want to take part in this event, go ahead and do it.
I`m sure those taking part will thoroughly enjoy themselves and the public too, no doubt  O0

Operating principle

the spring 1 prevents accidental contact.
This spring attached to the target 2 is at + battery.
The target 2 is a metal plate.
When the lance of the opponent hits the target it can be stuck on the magnet 3 and is glued.
Electricity passes.
The LED lights up.
The buzzer makes its noise

the candidate is eliminated

There is no possible contestatipon and no waste

If you have questions I am at your disposal.

You'll notice that when you sleep I thought   {-) {-) {-) {-) {-)

Not really
People are just making suggestions for other events that could be held at some point. No one has mentioned that any of these should replace your event
Klunk mentioned about the jousting and Gazou simply suggested a solution.

Goddammit confused by a french man (no offence! )
Did someone try to Insult me?
I asked for suggestions. Although overly complicated it could work.  But I was thinking of something generic that I could knock up a couple of dozen of to fit to boats at Mayhem.

There will be Other events too, if this is not to your taste, just  ignore it and focus on the rest of the weekend.
Currently, we looking at building a new build series based on the mini Thomas the 12" Tug!   :-))

I'm in for Springer wars. I'm also in for the 'fill the ice cream tub with the water monitor' thing, with my trusty of 4 gallon a minute water pump %)




Andy will have to know up a few springer hulls at work. Lots of ply and mdf lying around
