Ok, I do know that Sue, Ivan and James will not be attending. That frees up 1 Masters, 1 Womens and 1 Junior Spot.
I need to verify the entry criteria to see who qualifies for the Junior spot, Sophie is considering if she can attend, which means there is a spot for an old person ;)

Just checked in again on the ec10.fr site still nothing on accommodation but I'm guessing as it is at a holiday park most people will be keen for camping/chalets on site.

I assume everyone will be ferry/driving? My dad sent me a promo email today from ferrycheap.com for £40 rtn for car and 5 people. no restrictions! however it must be booked before 19th march. Can we get say 3 drivers to confirm from the team and book them for wednesday am, sun evening return? then fill those car spaces with players.

Can we have a team list posted here? i'm happy to sort out travel logistics if people wish.

I'm not at Qp this weekend as it's my 30th but maybe something to discuss?

Though I think Dunc still has first nabs on a seat - subject to getting Mrs H's permission..and baby H....er and getting an Ec10space!!

Travel to & Fro

Post by DamnMassive » Tue Apr 06, 2010 11:42 am

Hello all, i'm trying to sort out my plans for EC2010 in August. As Eurotunnel have a short (5day) travel offer at mo.

I am planning to travel out VERY early on Weds (gives one day to practice/play both courses) and back lateish (2200?) on the Sunday night.

I have a small estate car and am happy to offer travel / lifts to two others, (possibly three). I will be camping and self catering - so I will be carrying a reasonable amount of kit - so two bods is preferred.

I am travelling from Romsey (say 0500) to Folkestone (0700?) via M3/M25 so will pickup anywhere 'reasonable' en route.

Tunnel cost is around £90 return (inc people) and car does 50mpg so fuel share is only going to be around £15 - 20 each. And the car is a company car - so no other costs!

BUT once there - the car is only going with me to where i'm playing! but i'm sure between all UK players lifts between courses can be covered.

Anyone interested? - I would like to know by the end of the week

Sorry for delay in Euro-decision.

BOF will NOT be attending Euros - school holidays, family etc. make it an impossibility.

Maybe next year..? (didn't I say that last year, and the year before, and the year before that, ad infinitum?)

I hope someone will be able to take my place/fill my shoes (size 10)

Sorry Conor, I'm a size 9 and therefore unable to fill your shoes. I have lost the battle to come for "family reasons" those said "family reasons" may/may not have been that the shoes were too smelly.... :D
