No that's fine its only about three miles from the event so if I need to bring the arena I will drop it off first otherwise I can pick you both up on the way.
If you and Joey can let me know when your trains get in I can work out the best time to leave home.

Sorry, I'm going to have to pull out of this. I've had very little time lately, just been working on Entropy and it's having issues I don't have time to fix, and I just have better uses for the time at the moment. I wish everyone the best of luck and hope you all have a great day, and I hope I'll see you at the AWS.

Thanks for the offer of a lift Pete; I really appreciate it.

awww, sorry to hear that Scott :(

Thanks for the lift offers, I'll take you up on that I think Pete :) According to the railway oracles I should be at Nuneaton at about 9:04, so get the Pink ready for then!

I really want to come to this as a first event, the issue is my wife is working and I would have to bring both kids. Not sure the 2yr old would behave long enough for me and my son to enjoy it. Maybe next time.

Event details

IMPORTANT BIT FIRST.....
SITE SECURITY
MIRA is a secure site and cameras are not allowed except in the Sports Club for private functions.
I will inform them what is going on and it should be all cleared ready,
however please don`t photograph ANYTHING or wave cameras about ANYWHERE outside the club room,
do not photograph from the club room outwards either.
Doing so could mean confiscation of all cameras at the event and jeopardise any further events at Mira.




Official start time is 10am, (I should be there from 9 onwards, please try not to get there before me.)
this includes organising, setting up & sign ups etc., first fights planned to start at 11am

I`m planning on no later than 5pm finish but we'll see how it goes,
if everyone has had enough we can pack up but we probably won't get kicked out until the morning.

Planned events - subject to attendance, with 1pm-1.30pm break

Flea-Weight Knock Out

Main Event - Double Knock out as per AWS,

Nano weight knockout

Marbles - similar to the 'Hungry Hippos' game.

Tag Team Knockout

Annihilator

Football! (always popular)



Whatever else we can fit in....



SAT NAV Use CV10 0TU, that should be only for Mira and should get you straight there.

The roadworks along the front have now finished and there is a brand new traffic island at the entrance.
turn in and stop at the security gate, tell them you are here for the robot event in the social club and they will tell you where you need to go.
If you forget then its 1st left after the security, then left again.
The social club room is above the canteen.
Parking is opposite the canteen entrance.



(1)From M69
Take junction 1, head towards Nuneaton on the A5
You will go past a Texaco garage, then a Harvester, then the Hinckley Knight all on the right, if you are heading the right way.
Keep going on the A5, straight over three islands.
You will then come to some lights, keep going straight on the A5.
Then another island, straight over on the A5
There will be a bridge ahead, go over and straight on.

Mira will be on the right at the new island.

(2)From Nuneaton.
The best approach is leave Nuneaton on the A47 (Long Shoot),
At the end of the Long Shoot turn left at the lights onto the A5.
Go straight over the first island,
There will be a bridge ahead, go over and straight on.

Mira will be on the right at the new island

(3)From Tamworth
Head towards Nuneaton on the A5
Keep on the A5 all the way,
After you pass the Red Gate Pub on the left you will enter a short dual carriageway, Mira is on the left at the end of this.

(4)From Burton
Take the A444 to the A5
Turn left,
After you pass the Red Gate Pub on the left you will enter a short dual carriageway, Mira is on the left at the end of this.

Seeing as you are running Fleas and Nanos I have added mine to the entry.
Joey I have sent you a PM about the pick up.
