Big news at Derby Worlds 2017! There has been a change in the venue due to the Donington Exhibition centre being taken over and the new owners wishing to take Donington in a new direction. As such Derby Worlds will instead be held at Hangar 42 at Bruntingthorpe Proving Ground, Lutterworth, Leicestershire, LE17 5QS. See the link below. All the plans we have in place for Derby Worlds 2017 are still in place and we will keep you informed as we progress. This revision only happened over the past 2-3 weeks and trade forms have gone out this week with the new details on them, and it is great to report that overall there is positive support and bookings are already in place for some of the trade stands We will keep you updated on them as they come in. The derbyworlds website updates will follow shortly, the huge effort involved with finding the new venue impacted the time available to make those updates so we are a little behind at the moment on them. http://www.derbyworlds.com http://www.bruntingthorpeevents.com
I'm hoping to find out more soon, however based on current takeup levels for FoGR events in the UK it's hard to see any that 2-day event could expect to attract the minimum of 18 players who would be needed to make the current 3-player-team format viable I'm afraid.
Looking at the list of people who attended last year I can easily see as many as 10 of the 24 from 2016 choosing to play in other events, or not returning at all:
Anyone here who participated last time care to comment?
