Help is generally available from several of the "old timers". If you have a venue we can hold an AWS! :)

Looking at this venue. Only issue is it lacks many mains sockets. Opinions?

There'll be enough people turning up with extension leads that it should be able to be worked around - if there's only two for the entire room then that might be a problem, but generally people are resourceful enough to work around that (and these days I just arrive with seven or eight pre-charged battery packs and don't need to plug anything in!)

Got talking to the guys at the makerspace in Liverpool and have offered us the workshop as a venue. I'll happily help run it if there's interest.

If you have any idea of the size of the place? That could be pretty good.

There's a few rooms. One easily big enough for the arena and then 2 rooms in the workshops with a pile of desks where people could set up their bots. I'll get a rough estimate of size Thursday when I'm next there. Best of all they said if it's a not for profit event, we can the space for free.

Here's the Makerspace's website if anyone's interested:

The only problem I really see is that it's quite far north for an ant event and it may be difficult for a lot of people to get there. I know it's about 4 hours from me so I probably wouldn't be able to get there.
