Again location for me.

Would cost me iro £140 in fuel + game fees + asst'd gubbins that are always 'necessary' for each game and it's around the £200 mark :shock: .................. and the 4.5 hrs travel time either way makes it a looong w/end.

Game style/limits/expectations are spot on though :good:

I'd also need a lift

Agreed on the distance thing. Well, not so much the distance as the bastard journey - Norwich is a horrible place to get to from my neck of the woods. By contrast Great Westwood was a gem, even though not remotely local.

I can sympathise; it is actually exactly the same distance from me as Drakelow - 121 miles but will take me nearly an hour longer to get there.

I am sure it is often a multitude of factors which tip the balance - the journey is difficult enough but will seem worse when it is going to be in the dark and cold etc.

thats true CW, i went to UCAP for Project WOTAN on the south coast 7 hours travel, but less of an arse to get to than Norwich (wouldnt do it now though)

JOSH what you need to do mate is get a fooking MOTORWAY put in.

get on the back of the local mp,( allong with every other buisness and event in East Anglia) and get some propper roadage coming your way :D

Get Alan Partridge on the case - if he's against the pedestrianisation of Norwich City Centre he'd surely support decent Motorway access ?? :good: :D :wink:

Well, I am coming (obviously) and giving Yith a lift, but the four hour drive each way is a bit of a drag, and like Porta, less than popular with She Who Must be Obeyed. Which is why I'm only doing the Saturday.

I certainly wouldn't have been up for a 24 hour game and little/no sleep followed by a four hour drive back to Sheffield in the middle of winter. Good way of getting yourself killed, especially on those awful single carriageway A roads.

I enjoyed Border Clash loads though, so want to repeat the experience. I just really like playing Russians, although my wife says I don't look much like Jude Law. :)

Cheers

simply timing for me, very early in the new year, so difficult to commit - the good think about most games is the long lead times to prepare and arrange timetable. due to timing on this one, I wouldnt want to commit and then let people down due to other commitments.

Well, theres an events worth of people right there already so was a well worth Q and poll.

Keep em coming guys, this is massively helpful for future games.

I must admit I have always thought peeps would travel anywhere for a good old bash up and grateful for all the support on this so far.

Norwich seems to be the main one so far....and by the way...I bloody hate Nowrich lol. Its a cocks hole to get to for me let alone players....still, it is a very good site so maybe net year in the summer! It only takes me another 30 mins and I can get to Eversley!
:slap:

Its only 2 1/2 Hours away from me so travel isnt too bad, just Money and time keep me away.

I personally like to use my own kit as well and only own Yank / Brit. I would feel like crap if I broke something given to me.

The plot thickens!

Norwich is a complete bugger to get to though. I once drove there from Lincoln and it took 4.5 hours!
