I don't see any problem at all...;)

EDIT: (although seriously, when I hosted it in Pontefract there was still a really good turnout, I think wherever you host the AWS people will find a way to get there. And it would be nice to have a journey that's less than four hours for once!)

EDIT II: I've done some working out (insomnia's a wonderful thing) and there's only been three World Series north of Birmingham out of the 20 since I've started, none of which could really be said to have suffered greatly for their location (in fact the amount of people who came to Pontefract was frightening). I do love going down to Reading and Brighton, but I think we're due another one, and I'm all in favour of Liverpool :)

It's the reason I'm not at many events, bit of a pain for me to get down South. Would be nice to see more AWS events in midlands or up North.

Agreed, the only antweight events i have managed to get to are ant freeze and aws45, and both were about the limit of where i can get to.

I'd be looking to run it on either Saturday the 5th or 19th March, depending on whens better for everyone.

I can only come to one of antfreeze or the next AWS and if it's in Liverpool my mum would say antfreeze because it would be too far to Liverpool so I have very few days to decide, how likely is it to be in Liverpool???

Not quite sure it'll be in Liverpool yet, depends on how many people can make it up here. Especially someone with an arena as I'm yet to build one.

For people like me and some other good folks in the Midlands, it's very hard to get to Reading. I was lucky to get to AWS 46. I vote for a up-north event for a change!

I didn't see much wrong with somewhere like Coventry. AWS 45 had pretty good turnout so perhaps somewhere in the Birmingham/Coventry sort of region would be a good compromise?
