Nuneaton Open anyone?

Postby limpet » Mon Jul 27, 2015 2:12 pm

Due to the lack of ant events for a while if someone can provide the arena then I can supply the venue (Nuneaton - Ant Freeze venue). Just let me know.

Ditto for me :) Would there be possibility of non-combat events as well? It's been far too long since I had a game of antweight football...

Depending on the date I would be interested and can bring the arena.
Probably can't do one weekend in August although not sure which yet but Sept and Oct look clear so far.

I want to gauge interest of doing the Antweight Team Champs at this venue (cost of venue has been the main limiting factor).
For those unaware, the ATC's are a mixture of combat and games, set points for each event and in the past it was 4 teams of several ants, but this time it may be 8 teams of 2 roboteers, using 2 robots each from their squad (any with just 1 ant would be put into a team with another 1 robot team and a 2 robot team, to allow the same variety.

Assuming John would be alright with that too, I'd be interested :) I'll even come up with a less stupid team name this time!

I am in favour of September. August is too popular for holidays and its near, and October is nearly November :)
I`ll speak with the venue organiser today and see what is available.

Doesn't the 19th clash with the heavyweight champs?

Only worry with team champs is if there has to be 8 teams of two roboteers then only 16 people could come and about 8-10ish teams have already shown interest as do I but I don't really know how flexible the numbers are so idk if it would matter or not

It'd be flexible I'm sure :) if it's the 26th that's plenty of time to work out the details.

well I am sure we'd have roboteers with only 1 robot so we're making arrangements for that. Plus there will be a single elim comp for anyone that didn't get in. I know that may be restrictive but its all I can do really.
