It's something like 2 hours without a permit, so yes you'll have to use a public car park.
After much trawling, I'm just about ready to admit defeat on this.

For those driving I have found some cheap carparks at this link here.

On a Sunday, from what I can gather, it is a free for all, and if you're prepared to walk a little way, you can use any of the residentials.

I will likely be staying at the Mandolay Hotel, as recommended on UKCubemasters.

Not sure on what people usually do on the evening between the two days as it will be my first comp. But if any other cubers are considering the odd pint or three be great to catch up for some beers on the saturday night in town. So long as quantities do not affects Sunday mornings hand/eye co-ordination! :eek:

Usual protocol at UK comps is to try to organise ourselves and book a table for dinner, only to realise it's much easier if we all pile into McDonalds. Then we sit in the restaurant until we're told to leave. After that there will no doubt be several people keen for a drink(s) to drown their sorrows of not getting a good magic average. The second day will go quite late and I expect most people will leave that evening, but stragglers will find something to do I'm sure.

EDIT: p.s. I wouldn't worry about drinking too much - I have personal evidence that alcohol and sleep deprivation generates better official results, especially in bigbld

If anyone is interested I know where pretty much all the decent coffee shops are, where the empty ones are, and where most places to eat in Guildford are and I will be there both days competing only in a few events so I'm happy to hand out directions etc.

Some of my greatest achievements/close misses/downright jinxness has happened either under the influence or whilst in the period of getting some blood back into my alcohol stream. I just do not want to be responsible of leading others into a state of disrepair!

I'm happy to go with the flow and will be happy to join whoever is up for the sorrow drowning later :)

He means carbon atoms with hydroxyl attached to them.
Either I'm wrong or your wrong, but I didn't think he meant that either.

I was thinking more like 21 carbon atoms, 30 hydrogen atoms and 2 oxygen atoms.
