AWS 60 - Headington, Oxford - 30th Nov 2019

Post by razerdave » Thu Sep 26, 2019 12:01 pm

Hi all!

So, myself and Sarah Townsend (Tic-Toc, Eyesaurasaurus) are hoping to finish the year with a bang, hosting AWS60, our community’s 20 year anniversary, in Headington, Oxford!

Venue: Science Oxford Centre, Stansfeld Park, Quarry Road, Oxford, OX3 8SB

Sign up here:
http://antlog.garya.org.uk/entrant?eventId=23

Sign ups will close on midnight on Tuesday 26th, because we fully expect this to be at the limit and we have contingencies in place for this.

Venue and tech checks will be open from 8-10, competition will start shortly afterwards.

Due to us being under the insurance of the centre and also under their GDPR rules, we ask that you sign this form to say Sarah can take pictures to use for promotion of the science centre, and also gives us a list of every person in the building in case of evacuation:

We will also be opening up a special vote for “Contribution to Antweights” - special certificates to recognise those that have helped promote the Antweight class over the last 20 years or have contributed to the cause of antweights in other ways.
Please make your vote here:
https://forms.gle/92Yabx1cfuu2K9rZ7

Sarah has suggested a donation of £5 per team that enters, but this is voluntary. It’s just to help with costs of running the event.

If all goes to plan, this event will also be streamed via Twitch :). Commentators welcome!

Any more information, ask here or drop me a message!

Will there be a limit on how many bots you can enter or is it the same so 3 rollers and 1 cluster/walker?

The entry limit is not set, however we are expecting a full event. As such, enter 4 but one will be put aside in case gaps need to be filled; we want everyone that has signed up to enter, so the people with 4 entries will be asked to sacrifice on as we did at AWS 58.

In the spirit of diversity, we would ask that your “sacrificial” robot be one of your rollers as opposed to your required 4th entrant (a Walker or a cluster).

after aws58, i decided to run a permanent 3 bot lineup. seeing as between myself, my son and the mrs, with 4 bots each would be 12 bots entered... us all having 3 instead allows for another team of 3 without the overall number changing...

unfortunately, i dropped my cluster so my 3 bots are all rollers
Team Rocket Robotics
Esper(4wd flipper)
Mantis (4wd grab 'n' lift)
Dominus (SPINNAAAAAH under construction)
Remembering Rex (antweight cassuis)

I got in touch with my inner self today....... Thats the last time i buy cheap toilet paper!!

Have already signed up, am looking forward to it!!

Out of curiosity, how will the "Contribution to Antweights" vote work? Will it be a ballot on the day, an online form or something else entirely?

James:
Working on the form now, should be a case of an open ballot, although I have suggestions for a few people who should get them.

I'm sorting the form (it's for my work).

I need to keep an eye on numbers, so ideally each person needs their own form / own entry on the form (if you tick yes to extra people, it lets you put in more names), as it cuts down on my admin (plus will make it quicker to check in on the day) - sorry if it wasn't clear!

Don't worry about how you've done it, it's clear there are three people, but for future people reading this... please enter each attendee separately :)

FYI this isn't saving emails or tracking your data!
