Hello!

Countdown is coming to Liverpool in September. Hope to see you there!

FACEBOOK EVENT:
https://www.facebook.com/events/431283990952369/?ti=cl

LOCATION:
Cross Keys pub, 13 Earle Street, L3 9NS, Liverpool.

DATE:
21 September 2019

FORMAT:
Edinburgh/Lincoln style, 6 rounds of 9-rounder games played in tables of three, one player hosts while the other two play. The top two ranked players, after six games (sorted by wins, then points scored, then points difference), will meet in a final to determine the overall champion. This will also be a FOCAL event.

SCHEDULE:
12:00 - Doors open
12:20 - First round draw
12:30 - First round
13:40 - Lunch
14:30 - Second round
15:40 - Third round
16:50 - Final
17:20 - Prize-giving ceremony

PRIZES AVAILABLE:
- Champion
- Runner-Up
- Third Place
- Most conundrum solves
- Best word spot of the day
- Rudest word spot of the day

DIRECTIONS:
- Coming by train? The best bet is probably to come into either Liverpool Central or Liverpool Lime Street, and then change to get onto a train that stops at Moorfields. Most likely this will be on the underground/Wirral Line service. Walking would be an option but it's quite a fair distance.
- Coming by car? There's an NCP car park nearby. A quick glance at the website tells me that it should cost around £19 for the entire day. Feel free to check the website for more information. Most of the nearby streets have yellow lines so I'm not sure what to suggest otherwise. If you're early enough you might be able to find somewhere within walking distance for free.
- Coming by any other method? Send me a private message and I'll assist you as best I can.

Any other questions, just let me know, preferably on Facebook but obviously I'll check this forum from time to time as well.

Cheers!
Andy

Some news regarding the after-event festivities.

I've spoken to the Trattoria restaurant and they are happy to take our reservation without needing a deposit, because the owner trusts Emma and me as fairly regular customers there. Which is very nice of him. #itsnotwhatyouknowitswhoyouknow

As with a few other events recently, he will however need the food orders two weeks in advance of the event, because we will be a large group. As such, I will be putting the menus up on Facebook later and collating everyone's order in advance.

Any questions just let me know.

We don't have Gavin to sort us out with a parkrun, but I'm intending to do:

if anyone wants to join me.

Looks like an easy train from Moorfields - and my hotel is close to the station/venue if anyone needs to use my shower afterwards.
