This is a new venue for the event, I went in today and its very nice, kitchen facilities and a microwave, tables chairs (now theres a luxury!) and even carpet.
Free parking, unload by the door if needed then park up.
There's shops nearby (behind it) with a Sainsburys Express, newsagents, chemist, chip shop (not sure of opening times), pub that serves meals (The Flintlock).

This is looking to be quite popular this year!
Really looking forward to it, I’m currently working on a brand new No Parking front flipper and Limpet XXT but I really need to get a spinner sorted.

Signed up Betsie.

I'm travelling by train and bicycle again, which will be fun.

Now all I have to do is get the robot fixed, currently in 100 tiny pieces and not working, due to catastrophic short circuit last week (GND and +17v ?). New Raspberry Pi is ready...

My custom electronics leaves a lot to be desired...
Robot: Betsie - RaspberryPi controlled flipper bot with gyro stablisation - too clever for her own good?

According to the met office there is a chance of snow for the weekend.
It looks fine for Hinckley and there’s no plans to cancel the event.
If you want to text me before you leave then I will confirm yes or no, otherwise assume it is on until further notice.

Please see the updated timetable in the first post for this Saturday, signups will now stay open for the morning and we’ll run the main tournament in the afternoon.
This is to allow more time to travel with the weather as it is.
