Hey Jesse D, is there a good pizza place there or near Lemmington Spa?
Like 'better' than Pizza Express???

Prezzo is better :)

It's at the bottom of town, just round the corner from the town hall. Very easy to find.

Thanks Jesse!

When you say best normally two for one does that mean they have that kind of deal(2 pizzas for the price of 1)???
If so how do I get this deal, is it a coupon or ???

Steve asked about access via the gate from the Clinic. I have spoken withthe Manager today and she will arrange for the gate to be opened on Friday afternoon.
As always it is very important to me and the course to maintain good relations with neighbours, so please be very respectful of their property and their privacy. For example, the bins in the clinic grounds are for the Clinic's visitors, don't put your rubbish in their bins. Businesses don't get free rubbish collection.

Slightly updated - this I believe is what will be played too, however discussions are afoot.

Another tree came out of 10 on the weekend and all the rubbish was chopped down from above the tee of 6, there is now a standing area behind the tee, please use this when waiting to drive. Steps have been made half way up and should be completed by Spring Fling, if not take care up the slope as it is slippery.

Its all coming together very nicely.

There won't be many scores under 60 over the weekend on the new layout! whilst the course par is now a 57 there are two more holes at least that play like 4's - 9 and 11 and you have to really work for your birdies.

enjoy.

I don't need a list. Just need people to be respectful. The Clinic offers it's clients a peaceful and private setting, so they don't want someone cranking up a soundsystem next door, or wandering around taking photos of their building and grounds while clients are coming and going. If people arrive after 5pm on Friday, as requested in the invite, then things should be winding down at the Clinic, most clients will have gone by then.

 Jesse Denny E. Jessedenny@hotmail.com T. 07590992813
British Disc Golf Association
E-mail: Info@BDGA.org.uk Website: http://www.BDGA.org.uk
Location
The course is located just to the north of Leamington Spa. Leamington Spa is located in the middle of England about 15 miles SE of Birmingham and 90 miles NW of London.
There is no postcode for the course itself but you can enter the post code for the adjacent BPAS Blackdown Clinic: - CV32 6RW into http://www.streetmap.co.uk and zoom out once to see this map
For directions use the same postcode on http://www.theaa.com journey planner
Directions
 Train - You can get a train to a Leamington Spa from Birmingham or from London. If coming from other directions you may travel via Oxford or Coventry. It is easiest to then get a taxi to the course on Old Milverton Lane. It's about 2 or 3 miles.
 Bus - There is a bus stop about 800m from the course, on the A452 between Leamington and Kenilworth. There is a frequent service between Leamington and Coventry. Ask the driver to let you off at the stop closest to the Warwickshire Hospital. From the nearby roundabout take the exit to Old Milverton. The course is on the right hand side after about 700m.
 Car - If travelling by car it is easiest to approach the course from the north side. From the junction of the A46 and A452 between Kenilworth and Leamington Spa, head south towards L/Spa. At the first roundabout take the second exit towards L/Spa, at the second roundabout take the third exit towards
Old Milverton. After 700m turn right into the new car park. Please do not access the course via the BPAS Clinic. The gate is locked and any unauthorised vehicles on their premises may be towed away.
 Important- about 300m from the roundabout and visible from the road is a small sign on a gate saying ‘Quarry Park’. Please ignore, this is not Quarry Park Disc Golf course. The Quarry Park course has a very low hedge along the road, and the entrance has a sign with a disc golf graphic.

If Andy signed up and isn't on there maybe others have as well and it just didn't show?

Should players double check to see if they're 'listed' on Jesse's spread sheet???
