Massive numbers of new problems on the way as we get ready for THREE
With just a week to go before THREE on 12th March, we're gearing up for a huge routesetting effort over the next two weeks. As well as the 40 or so competition routes that will be set for next weekend, we've got mutiple whole circuits getting reset, ALL the house volumes (and current routes going through those) coming down and being replaced with an exciting new array of shapes and problems, and special short-lived challenge routes popping up left right and centre to fill any temporary gaps.
Here's a more-or-less comprehensive list of what's changing over the next few weeks to whet your appetites, and give you the chance to tick off any of your projects that may be coming down over the next few days.
The centre will be open as normal throughout this time, with most of the setting being done out of hours as usual - but please bear with us through any minor disruptions, it'll be totally worth it!
Route setting days coming up:
- Monday 7th: White and Giant Killer Circuits fully stripped, and most house volumes being taken down, with about 15 new problems taking advantage of the new house volume set around the centre, and some special 5 day challenge blocs.
- Wednesday 9th: the ENTIRE comp wall is being stripped, a 2 day special mega-route being set up while it's empty, and Mint & Seagull circuits all coming down. More new house volumes going up with attached problems round the centre.
- Friday 11th: Huge set of about 40 comp blocs being set around the centre, with the comp wall out of action all day - routes from Yann, Evie, James, Tom B and special guest Holly!
- Saturday 12th: THREE competition day.
- Monday March 14th: New Mint Set by James and Tom F, general resetting by Tom B & Holly.
- Wednesday March 16th: New Seagull Set by Sophie and Tom B, general resetting by Gaz Parry & Josh.
- Friday March 18th: New White Set by Leah Crane, final extra resetting by Tom B and Luca.
I'm not sure exactly how many new routes that will be over the next two weeks, but A LOT ought to cover it. Shaping up to be the biggest route setting period since we opened!
