Hi theres a lot talk about 'meet at the cafe' and ship people to the site. Does this mean we will not be able to park on site?. We have played Senny a number of times now and been able park and camp in the car park. Will this be OK for March?

Ditto.

How do we get to the site? Is there a specific postcode we can use?

I've done some leg-work for us all, and provide you with these dirrections. Sennybridge Fibua is actually 8 miles away 'as-the-crow-flies' North North East (12 miles via road) from Sennybridge Town. Here's a link showing the route from the town [arrow A] to the MOD Fibua [arrow B]:
http://maps.google.co.uk/maps?f=d&source=s_d&saddr=sennybridge&daddr=Unknown+road&geocode=FcSnGAMdhoDJ_yl_npKdfzVuSDEZPLvJkhR7pQ%3BFTj7GQMd8OHI_w&gl=uk&hl=en&mra=mi&mrsp=1&sz=15&sll=52.034885,-3.612957&sspn=0.024289,0.052314&ie=UTF8&ll=51.991434,-3.607292&spn=0.097249,0.209255&t=h&z=13

This a a StreetView (why in the middle of Wales????) of the Northern entrance road:

Josh

Just a few questions;

Will there be a staging point where we meet to be convoyed to the site or are we making our own way to the site.

What time do we need to get there on Saturday morning.

Will you be providing any food or will we need to bring our own.

Josh is prolly on site now, so may not be communicando at the mo, bgut i cna tell you that Nigel aka 'Brew Up Chaps' is cooking if you don't want to bring your own food. Here's the menu:

'Streets of Fire' Menu

Friday/Saturday/Sunday meal deal - £15
Saturday/Sunday meal deal - £12
Free tea and coffee with the meal deals


Friday Evening

Pasta Bolognese


Saturday Breakfast

Breakfast Bap (Sausage, Bacon and/or Egg)


Saturday Evening

Chicken Pot Pie, Mash and Gravy
Apple crumble with custard


Sunday Breakfast

Breakfast Bap (Sausage, Bacon and/or Egg)



I think we'll be driving up to the FIBUA site itself, as Josh said that'd be putting out signs from the main town of Sennybridge. You can arrive onsite anytime from 2pm today (Friday). Game usually kicks off for 9:30am/10am so ideally get there for about 8ish latest to get yourself signed-in and ready.

Are you sure about the start time as it'll take us better part of 5 hours to get to the site which to get there for 9 would mean leaving at 4am :shock:

Pete, as discussed by telephone, unfortunately Anne's not too well at the moment so we're looking unlikely for this one now.

Sorry everyone!
