    Ok so Arnaud don't worry about Joey, Chris, Chris, Teemu or me as we have a plan to get to the venue on Friday afternoon, which involves getting the train. Still expect visitors Thursday night though, we just made the travelling situation easier!

    Hello everyone,
    I have kindly been offered a position at the bristol open in march to sell some cubes at the event.
    However, i have no way of getting there / back and have nowhere to stay.

    So if anybody is going from / doesn't mind going through manchester and has a spare seat in their car please could you PM me or post a message here so i can hopefully get to the open.

    Also if anyone has a place to sleep, even a tent or a floor near the venue could you do the same please as a hostel isn't viable when carrying tonnes of cubes around.

    PS i am willing to contribute towards petrol costs to and from the event.

    Thanks,
    Andy

    Funny, it seems that this thread pretty much died when Arnaud left for Asia and coudn't drive/host people anymore :p (so maybe this really was a "Arnaud's car reservation system" thread ?)
    It's sad, it think it was a pretty good idea... So let's dig it up a little and hope people actually react !

    Competition : Hessen Open 2012
    Requesting : Some place to sleep for Arnaud, Geert and me on Saturday night (so the 4th of February) !
    Offering : Home made cookies (I'm starting to be really good at baking cookies :p) and some fun ?

    Anybody know of any 2014 competitions in anchorage, Alaska, USA?
     
  16. There hasn't been a competition in Alaska ever.
    If you want to go to a competition, you're definitely going to have to travel, you could fly to west coast US, Canada, and maybe even Russia, but those are really far away, so if you want to hold a competition in Alaska, you need plenty of other cubers, you can hold a competition anywhere in the world if you have a cubing community there and be able to have a delegate come.
