|TCMW IV was held at the National Guard Armory in St. Paul, MN on June 22 and 23, 2002
I didn't get the first two fights taped against Al (Team Bobbing for Frenchfries), and Loki (Team Norse)
|My fight against Al. Al was a two wheeled pushy bot with a flame thrower. It was pretty close
until the end when I got Al on top of Morphling and got some needed points at the end. The
match was called a draw and we had to fight for another minute. They left Al on top of Morphling
and got an easy advantage and kept it. Won this match.
|My second fight was against Loki. Loki was a 4 wheeled bot with a tilling type weapon in the front.
It was a good fight, took out Loki's weapon, but Loki did get Morph up against the wall and got a
couple hits in. Lost this match, hoping to get a video copy of this match from Brian to see why.
|My third fight was against Minnesota Mangler. Morph got
a good pop on the Mangler which took out the Mangler's
spinning action. The fight was a cat and mouse game for a
little bit, then Morph got stuck under the box entrance door
and had to be set loose. Morph, then took the Mangler to
the spinning hazard. Won this match.
|My fourth fight was against Disco Techno (cough HMN).
Disco got his problems with the vertical spinning blades
fixed nicely, in earlier matches the weapon shaft kept
getting bent. Morph tried to take it out, but it kept on
spinning. We were both trying to get set-up for good hits.
But, at the end Disco cut Morph's antenna (which we
moved to the outside to get better reception) and Disco
took advantage of this and took out Morph's back wheel.
Lost this match.

|Oh yes, one of the coolest and yet less
costly made bots at TCMW
