Is this going ahead? Wondering whether to book a room in Basingstoke :)

As I understand it this is event is going ahead at least as the Antweight Open and as no definite alternative has appeared more than likely as the AWS.

If Harry is organising something in October, do people still want this event to go ahead?

Definitely! Sadly, we are going to be unable to make Bath as it is way too far for us to travel so the Antweight Open is really our last chance for an event for the rest of the year. We wouldn't want to miss out on the Antweight Open at all; really loved it last time. :D

I would definitely want this event to go ahead this has been on the calendar since the end of August.
The fact that another event might be organised if a venue can be found is all a bit iffy I think we should aim to make this the AWS and if the other event does happen then all well and good we don't have enough events as far as I am concerned.

Agreed; well said Pete. I agree that currently the issue of the venue for the next AWS is concerning. Basingstoke is to date my personal favourite venue so another AWS at Basingstoke would definitely be the best way to do it.

Hi guys, thanks for all the kind words about our events. we're still happy to run it as an AWS. I just don't want to take Harry's opportunity. If he's happy with us doing it again in Basingstoke, that's what we'll do. If he still wants to host the winter AWS in bath/Bristol, we'll still run ours as the antweight open.

We won`t be attending sorry, I'm putting everything on hold to get the heavyweight built but couldn't say for definite earlier until the official BBC announcement of the new series.

Hi guys, now that Harry has put his event exactly two weeks before our one and robot wars series two has just been announced and filming will start in December, how many people are likely to still attend our event?
