Hi all,

The venue for the 2018 UK Championships has now been booked. It's the same location as last year.

Venue

Premier Inn Manchester


Premier inn Website

Nearest station is Manchester Piccadilly, which is, according to the website, 200 yards away.

There is also information about parking on the Premier Inn link above.

Meeting Room 2

Meeting room information

The room is booked from 8am to 5pm, (not my choice, that's the standard time).
I will start another thread for equipment requirements, at which time I can liaise with those bringing Amigas and TV's, to arrange a time to drop off and set up.

There is unlimited water and coffee included in the room.

The cost of the room is £162, to be divided between participants. Please bring cash, and expect to pay about £20 depending on the final number that attend.

Hotel rooms can be booked and will cost approx £63 per night, according to the website, but if enough of you wish to book, I can have a word and see if I can get a reduced rate. I won't hold my breath, but it's worth a shot.

This venue has been selected as it is really close to Manchester Picadilly rail station, so coming in on the train may be an easier option for some of you.

Rule set - all as per 2015 World Cup.

If your name is not already down and you wish to attend please do reply to this post, and I'll add you to the list.

I don't have contact details for any of the Brummie lads, so could someone please give them a shout to let them know where and when?

Provisional attendees:

01. John Vella (Obviously)
02. iankay
03. Logos
04. Steve Camber
05. Lee W
06. durban (Hopefully)
07. MICK
08. Mark V (Probably) :P
09. Robert Swift

Super stuff I will definitely attend, although it looks like someone has already spoken on my behalf ;)

I'd just like to add I am not too happy about my name being all lower case, can you please change it or I'll get all mardy and bring a mouse to the tournament instead of a joystick.

The fact is, MICK, that you could bring a mouse instead of a joystick, and you'd still beat me, (probably) and Mark, (definitely)!

:P :lol: :etc:
