AWS 52 - Greenwich University - Sign up + details

Postby Garfie489 » Wed Jun 14, 2017 8:07 am

Im just going to copy the information format for AntFreeze so people can see all the details clearly here. Spoke to Dave Weston who said to make it into an AWS.

TLDR version of the below information - http://robotwars101.org/events/display.php?id=7362

Image

Where:
University of Greenwich,
Medway Campus,
Central Avenue,
Chatham
ME4 4TB

When: 09:00 1st July 2017
Until: 16:00 1st July 2017
------------------------------------------
The plan...
Arrival anytime around 09:00
09:00 - 9:30: Sign-ups and set up - Signups for any non pre registered robots will close at 9:30
9:30 - 10:00: Tech Checks and Testing - Signups for pre registered robots will close at 10:00

Ant Weight Tournament to AWS rules

Fleaweights and Nanos can be done towards the end of the day if time allows.

Award Ceremony at the end.
------------------------------------------
Competitor sign up is at:
http://antlog.garya.org.uk/entrant?eventId=6

The easiest way to get to the University is by leaving the A2 at Junction 1 of the M2 and going down the A289. Follow it to a roundabout, and take the 2nd exit. You will now take the 1st exit at every roundabout till you get to a tunnel, which has a slip road at its exit that takes you up to another roundabout. By taking the 3rd exit, and then the 1st you should be at the University. The University is signposted as "Universities at Medway" at most of the roundabouts on the A289. The best place to park is by heading right once in the University going uphill towards the upper buildings. Follow these all the way around to the back, and the building we are in has a large car park on either side.

I will double check that parking is free shortly, however theres plenty of car parking spaces around the University. That last roundabout you took the 1st exit on, if you took the 3rd then theres a shopping center aswell - along with local hotels and supermarkets within walking distance.

The University has an upper and lower level (youll see this easily when you get there, theres about a 2 story height difference in the land). On the Upper level, the 2nd building along from the entrance is Blake. Its clearly signposted along the cliff front (the main walkway). We are on the ground floor in B028, ill try to find a way to get everyone directed there.

Will sign up once I've confirmed my transport with my step-dad.

Err, 'until: 16:00 28th July 2017' is that right? :P thought it was a one day event.

Would it not be better to do the sign up direct on AntLog?

Trying not to take Antweights too seriously. I think I'm failing.
First AWS was 46.

I looked on the event guidelines and the link for signups had expired. Thus i looked to Antfreeze and found the above method for signups assuming it to be correct.

Is it an issue? - i dont mind copying people over, but if so ill make it on Antlog

There are advantages in using the antlog sign up.
If you are going to use antlog to run the event it means the robots are already in the system and only need to be confirmed.
Even if you decide to run the event manually the ability of antlog to do the draw automatically splitting up the teams is a great help.
Also because each person can go in and edit their entry people don't have the excuse not to do there entry because they are not quite sure which robots will be ready.

All signed up really looking forward to this.
I think you should only sign up robots entering the main antweight event not the fleas and nanos.

Peter's right, Antlog considers each event as a single weight class, ie a single competition. Since fleas and nanos don't usually run double elimination it is easier to keep them separate.

Still only 18 robots signed up and less than two weeks to go.
It is hard enough for people to organise an AWS when you know who is coming but if everyone leaves signing up to the last minute it is difficult to plan the event in detail.
With such a big gap since the last event surly there must be more people intending to attend and with the antlog sign up you can always change your entry at any time.

On that note, if anyone is planning on coming but for whatever reason don't want to sign up yet - just comment on here to let me know :)

Doesn't matter if you don't know who or how many your bringing - but rough figures would really help :)

We shall aim to be there on 1st July. We shall bring the usual number of machines (~10) and shall sign up as soon as we know which ones they shall be. However, you can more or less confirm our attendance. Looking forward to it! :D

I'm really surprised by the lack of sign ups. Yeah theres Robots live on the same day but that shouldn't eat up the numbers of AWS regulars not attending. The silence from people on here lately hasn't helped either.
