Countdown Bristol 2018

Post by Mark Murray » Sun Aug 20, 2017 6:50 pm

CO BRIS (Bristol) IS BACK....24th February 2018
Bristol County Sports Club
40 Colston St, Bristol, Avon BS1 5AE
Location on Google Maps:
Presented by Mark Murray and Jeff Clayton,

The plan at the moment is for everybody to compete in seven 15r games, in the traditional classroom setup:

The grand final will be played out as a 15 rounder showpiece
Prizes for 1st, 2nd and 3rd

Doors open at 9am for a 10am start, with free tea & coffee available on arrival.
A buffet lunch will be provided at 12:30pm and light refreshments will be on sale from the bar throughout the day. (Please advise of dietary requirements, where necessary.)

We will also have a raffle again this year with all proceeds going towards the FOCAL 2018 finals. any donations of prizes is very welcome

The intention is for the grand final to start at, or just after 5pm, with prizegiving concluded by 6pm

Admission costs £15pp (including buffet) and you can secure your place now
- By PayPal ( Please ensure when sending money by paypal that paying family/friends otherwise the full amount will not come through)
- By phone (07527 907065);
- By cheque (address available on request).
We have capacity for 40 contestants ; spectators are also welcome. Please book as early as possible to avoid disappointment if we reach maximum capacity
we will also be going for a meal later (last 2 years has been za za bazaar and the decision for where we go this time is in the hands of the co organisers poll currently). I will be also taking payments for whatever is decided, either in advance, or on the day. if paying on the day, I will need to know at least few days advance whether you intend to come for the meal

The Club is in a prime city centre location:
- If you're travelling by train, get off at Temple Meads and high frequency bus routes 8 & 9 (up to every six minutes combined) depart from the station forecourt. These will drop you off at the Hippodrome just a short walk from the venue.
- If you're coming by car, you can avoid the cost of city centre parking with the Park & Ride buses from A4 Bath Road, A4 Portway and Long Ashton -- please check for details including times of last buses back to the car park.
Accommodation: there are a lot of hotels around central Bristol, but parking can be an issue. The ones below are just some of the hotels in Bristol, but there are a few more
- Travelodge Anchor Road: - hotel parking £7.50 for 24 hours.
- Hotel Mercure: (on-street parking can cost approx £4; secured NCP £15/24hrs).
- Hotel Ibis: £10/24hrs parking at nearby car park.
- Premier Inn: (no onsite parking)
- Novotel, Holiday Inn

Happy to answer any questions, and if you need any help with planning your journey or your stay, send me a PM!
Looking forward to hearing from you!
