Also for SAT NAVs use the postcode RG6 7BE
Please arrive between 10-10:30
Signing in/ Tech Checks:
Since there are a lot of robots to check please sign in as soon after arrival as possible and have your robots ready to run as time may be tight.
Also this time we will be checking that spinners failsafe- where possible please check this before you arrive as this will speed up the process considerably.
I will be signing in and doing basic checks (weight, cube etc.) and Dave Lawrie will be doing the spinner checks in the arena.
Due to the large number of entries there will not be a non spinner warm up. Instead we will go straight to the fleaweight competition after which the main AWS will begin.
Several people have volunteered to help with the judging- thanks to those that have.
This time we will be (hopefully) trialling some new tournament software which will be used in conjunction with AntLog- this should speed up the draw process and get everything underway a little faster than usual.
Once the AWS is over, other competitions such as Robot Roulette, Annihilator and Tag Team can be run until around 5:30.
As usual there will be certificates available for the winners along with the AWS Trophy but this time we also have some others which have been kindly donated by MBoss.
Please bring your own food
If you have any issues either email me at will_teamshock(AT)yahoo.com or PM me.
I think that should cover everything- if you need any more info let me know.
See you all on Saturday
As mentioned at the last AWS, I will be hosting AWS 37 here in Reading on the 17th March 2012
The address of The University of Reading is
PO Box 217
Don't use the university's postcode on a satellite navigation system as it takes you to the Royal Mail sorting office next to TGI Fridays in town. Use RG6 7BE
For Satellite Navigation the coordinates of the club are Lat: 51?26'30.35"N Long: 0?56'6.85"W.
It's a big campus, so you might have more luck looking atthis map where the bowls club is number 21 on square C8. Use the Earley Gate entrance to the University's Whiteknights campus.
