AWS 51

Postby PanoramicHarry » Tue Sep 20, 2016 5:21 pm

Because no one else has stepped in volunteering to host the third Antweight World Series event of the year and that it's getting closer to the time of the year it usually comes around, after some discussions with David Weston at Colchester I am willing and hoping to step in and host the 51st AWS at Peasedown St. John (not far from Bath).

The proposed venue is Beacon Hall in my home village which is quite a big venue and will meet the requirements to host the event details can be found at http://www.beaconhall.org.uk/index.html.

Proposed date is October 29th and am checking with Beacon Hall if the venue is free.

It's a 3 hour drive, but should be able to make it there and back in a day. Or combine it with an end of half term trip.

Errrrr, will have to check with my step-dad if it's possible to drive to this event, otherwise I might have to pass on this one, which my little sister won't pleased about as it would be her first event with her robot.

Just had an email from Beacon Hall saying they're booked for the date until 5:30pm. :(

Will be on the hunt for a different venue that could end up being in Bath. If I can't find anything, I'll try Bristol.

Honestly I'd have thought there's more than enough room for two events at the end of the year :) I'll happily go to both Bristol and Basingstoke, and anywhere else for that matter...

Where would most people be staying if it does go ahead in Somerset?

Given that we have people travelling from Wales, Somerset, Gloucestershire, etc no it isn't! :D

I also live on the South Coast and almost every event is the wrong side of the M25 for me :) but wherever you live you have to accept that not all events, and not every AWS, will be on your doorstep.

Recently we seem to have quite a few people based in the south-west so an AWS down that way is not unreasonable (especially as Harry has volunteered to run it). The worse situation is when someone insists on running an event convenient for them but 200 miles from any other roboteer!

I very much doubt Dover would ever be suitable for any robotic event.

But I can understand.

Any update on the venue? It getting near and I'm wondering whether to risk everything and start a completely new one or not. :D

I'm looking forward to your new creation - I loved the lifting bot before (https://youtu.be/5n-6cuIlm6g?t=1h26m48s). I quite like seeing innovative designs.
