AWS 52

Postby razerdave » Mon Dec 26, 2016 10:53 pm

Hey guys
Sorry I've been a bit quiet, I've had a lot going on and a lot on my mind.

Just wondering who has plans to host this? Robot Wars filming is in March so whoever does host, I suggest doing it in April because various people will be busy.

Any volunteers?

I am looking into hosting it in our music hall at school however if anyone else wants to host go ahead as Gloucestershire is quite far west and I can't be sure if I can get the venue yet, I will be sure to ask soon though as it has about 24 plug sockets and is a good size.

I think Robot Wars filming in March is starting to look doubtful

Okay due to how busy I am in April and my parents unwilling to host so soon during school time I won't be able to do this but hopefully I can do the next one around summer holidays sort of time

Another Dutch AWS could be possible, i have some good locations. There is a big German ant competition in Dortmund April 8th, so timing will be an issue.

Im afraid melrose hall is booked up for the whole spring and summer so we cant do it. We should be able to do something in the winter though.

So far no-one has come forward, and with everyone in a stress regarding Robot Wars building, there may not be one. I will host if I have to but may have to ask for a few quid from competitors to pay for the hall.

It would be a shame, but if can't happen thats ok theres still the rest of the year to do it. And I think it's only fair for competitors to pay something back to help fund the hall costs.

Is there any word as to when the next event is? Some buddies and I have just built some bots and we're raring to whet our teeth!

Hi all,

New to the forum and to robot building.
Almost finished building my 'trial run' ant and starting plans for something more serious.

Would love to come and do battle at AWS52. Can travel pretty much anywhere in the UK!
