Just thinking out loud here but is there any reason this couldn't be the last AWS of the year? Don't think anyone has volunteered and its around the right sort of date.
I know Antweight Open is its own event and usually a bit more causal, but it might help a few people if it is converted for one time only. I could help you run it Dan if you fancied?

It's not a huge venue; I'm not sure if it'd fit everyone..

Yes, it is rather small and I sincerely doubt that all of the teams would be able to fit their robots etc on those tables very easily as it was a bit of a squeeze at the last event and there were far less people than at an AWS. In addition, I personally feel that it's best to keep the Antweight Open it's own event; a large separate AWS like last year would be much better.

sorry Dave. the venue size would make things a bit cramped. i think a lot of people like a nice casual event to finish the year off anyway. i will host the AWS one day though. it's kind of a life goal :)

EDIT: actually, mum says provided everyone apreciates that it's a smaller venue we can do it as theres another room that we can use as additional pits space. we would need someone to run antlog for us though as it''s gone wrong at both our previous events.

I can do shouting and organising and stuff for you. We can talk about it on Saturday. I know people enjoy Antweight Open as a casual event but I'm not sure there'll be many volunteers to run the last AWS this year, and this event is round about the right time anyway.
You don't have to if you don't want to of course, was just a thought :-)

no, i really want to do it! it'll be nice to step things up a notch. yeah, Dave if you could do shouting and things that would also be very good. i'll get some certificates made up and i think my nan said she'll help out with food so we should have refreshments in the venue.

as for pit space: the arena will be in the main hall along with as much pit space as we can get in with it and the signups desk. additional pit space will be in another small room in the building. we should have plenty enough space for everyone with two rooms but may i please ask that everyone keeps their pits areas tidy and in order. thanks. :)

For those of you that missed it, this event will now be AWS48, run by Dan and Vicki, with help from me. I'd change the topic heading but I'm still away so if another moderator could do it that would be great.

Great! An event we should be able to make it to! It's a shame that we'll miss out on our Antweight Open though...
