Anything would be good - the later in the month the better, probably, but any of them'd work :)

After the availability of the location is known, we could use Doodle (http://doodle.com/en_GB/) to find the best weekend for most people.

If people entered their username and ticked the best weekend, we'd quickly see which is best for most.

You can set it to not require a login, to save people having to sign up to Doodle.

I believe the latter half is the school holidays which might be more expensive but if not it might be good for us younger people :)

Any date around then seems fine although perhaps not the 9th but should be fine with any day should it come down to it. :D

Really looking forward to this one!

The 9th would be best for us but doesn't seem too good for others. We could do later as have already informed my boss that I'll need a day off in July to compete. This one should be good.

Antweight to build list: 4Wd lifter, new clusterbot, secret project, walker of some description.

Any date for us but maybe the 9th being straight after Robots Live would be the least favourite.

Prefer not the 9th

Be aware the Farnborough airshow is 16/17th
I started out with nothing and still have most of it left
