Antweight open/AWS 2019

Post by Hogi » Thu Mar 07, 2019 4:07 pm

Hi guys im looking at doing an event at some point later on in the year. Possibly in November. It would be in the same place as in previous years at melrose hall. Would there be interest for this and if so, what date would be best for everyone?

Basingstoke would be really convenient for me. Yes :)

Nice to see theres still interest for it. What would be the best date in November for everyone? Also, this event will take place in the new extention. Its slightly smaller than the main hall but should still be large enough to run an event in. We'll just have to be a bit conservative with space.

well I know Extreme Robots has an event on the 9th and 10th of November so that puts that weekend out contention.

Initially I said November but I have since started a newjob and they wont let me take holliday in November or December so I think we'd be better off running it October. Any requests for dates in October?

Eep, well if possible 5th of October, that way it wouldn't clash with Extreme Robots Maidstone on the 19th-20th and gives some of us that would be planning to go to this event and XR don't have to rush getting bots sorted for each.

Update. This event is now confirmed and will take place on 5th October 2019.

Could people please let me know weather this should be an AWS event or an antweight open event?

Hi again everyone. It looks like we'll have to push this back to the 12th October 2019 as my mum and dad have a music festival on the 5th. Is this ok?

no problem for me...

which arena is being used? i liked the aws arena so if the difference is the arena then i'm cool with it being an aws... if its not a difference in arenas, would you mind explaining the differences between the 2 events... i have only attended aws and antfreeze so the open is new ground for me...
