AWS 38 - Brighton 7th July

Post by James » Sat Mar 17, 2012 8:25 pm

AWS 38 is going to be held in Brighton on the 7th July

It will be at the University of Brighton, in the Cockcroft hall (same venue as SAC)
Address:
Cockcroft Building
Lewes Road
BN2 4GJ

Directions:

List of people coming

As this is a different venue to previous AWS's we have run, we won't be able to do the legendary team beligerant sausage sandwiches. :( but we might manage to bring some cakes :)
It's probably best to bring your own food, but there is a newsagents/ small shop across the road which sells food if needed.

The hall will open at 10:00, and the event should finish about 16:00.

This post will be updated with more info nearer the event...

AWS 38 is going to be in Brighton in July, the date will be confirmed when we've found out when the hall is available.

more details on the way...

Note that "across the road" does *not* mean "walk one mile in the wrong direction down the road" XD

Looking forward to this already, hopefully I'll have a full complement of robots :)

An AWS can be run by any experienced roboteer, Joey has run one, but for this next AWS The Aylwards volunteered, We've travelled to Hull and Pontefract in recent times and will do so again if an experienced roboteer wants to run it...

Feel free to run your own non-AWS event, it's recommended that you do that if you want to run an AWS in the future, something along the lines of Reading Robot Club, Richmond Fighting Robot Club, Southern Antweight Challenge or the Sly Practice in the North West.

As for Saturdays, public transport is much better on Saturdays than Sundays.

Also, more people can make the Saturday. It makes it easier for everyone not to have to rush home to get back to work on Monday morning.

You're contradicting yourself quite massively there XD

The reason AWS35 was run on a Sunday was the fault of the venue (my old college), as they were booked on the Saturday - it ended up working out well as a large group of us got together for a meal on Saturday evening and much fun was had. Saturday tends to be better for most people though, for the reasons Simon and Dave have pointed out and also because it gives you a day to recover and travel back (if the distance is a problem, you might find it works out well for you to travel down on the Friday evening and return on Sunday morning - I've done this in the past ^^).

Also, this isn't the Eurovision Song Contest and winning the event doesn't mean you have to host the next one :)
