The floor will be unpainted, its also interchangeable for different events and replacement.
I picked up the polycarb sheet this morning, from sheetplastics.co.uk, who are local-ish.
I`m getting the last of the plywood sorted in the next couple of hours, just the metalwork to cut now.
Just received the camera permission form so that's sorted.

Is this event open to spectators? I was going to be competing but won't be ready in time.

'Spectators' is a bit of a grand word for ant events but we always welcome people who want to come watch and chat.

I'm afraid I'm going to have to be a nuisance and ask if anyone is able to help me with transport between the venue and the train station? I'm happy to help with petrol money, of course.

The station will be on my way so I might be able to pick someone up but I will have one space, two would be a tight squeeze but maybe do able but I shall have to see whether my mum is willing to be put through the stress of finding the station and meeting people as she isn't exactly desperate to come anyway but ill se what I can do.

Which station are you going to there seems to be a choice of about 3.

Nuneaton station is easiest, but can get to the other two if it's more convenient, it just means changing.

No that's fine its only about three miles from the event so if I need to bring the arena I will drop it off first otherwise I can pick you both up on the way.
If you and Joey can let me know when your trains get in I can work out the best time to leave home.

Sorry, I'm going to have to pull out of this. I've had very little time lately, just been working on Entropy and it's having issues I don't have time to fix, and I just have better uses for the time at the moment. I wish everyone the best of luck and hope you all have a great day, and I hope I'll see you at the AWS.

Thanks for the offer of a lift Pete; I really appreciate it.

Thanks for the lift offers, I'll take you up on that I think Pete :) According to the railway oracles I should be at Nuneaton at about 9:04, so get the Pink ready for then!
