arrrrrgh i made a stupid mistake. i was thinking of taking the earliest plane on saturday morning could save me a night's accommodation, but now i realised there aren't any buses from the place i live to the airport in the early morning. have to take a taxi which would cost me 80 eur, or stay one night in the airport hotel:(

EDIT: there is a train levaing gatwick for guildford at 9:03 for £10 (11 EUR) which would arrive at 9:42, giving you time to get to the venue just as FMC finishes (if that is what's first).

I request that somebody (Joey) organises a vodka melon for Saturday evening and that you hold a 1 minute silence to think about my face as I'm sure you are all GUTTED that I won't be in attendance.
After all, this is the first UK competition in history without you there (remember I count the beginning of time as UKO '09). Just make sure you win USNats for us. Thanks

Meh, over 4 months I spent over 5k miles on a megabus or train going back and forth to Aberdeen whilst I was at Uni there, 400-odd miles each way, almost the same as glasgow-guildford :p
hah thats mad. The actual journey to guildford wouldn't be that bad its the price of the train tickets. i just don't have the money at the minute.

Gave you tried, mega bus or national express? I got to Manchester and back from London for £10.
Even if you could get only to London (which is more than likely to be cheapest) the return train fare from London to guildford should be quite reasonable.
