You will be able to fit 3 people at least.

Last year I got Thom, Rowan and Charlie into my TINY room. You can do it too :D

Flying is a good idea. From the airport you can take a bus to the train station which costs £6 approximately (seems to change every time Joey and I use it) and takes 30 mins. The venue is about 15 minutes walk from there or you can get a 8/9 bus. There will be hotel information next week but there is a hostel that is about £15 a night (maybe less if you book in advance) and is quite close, or various more expensive hotel options.

All official events will be held with the exception of multi, feet and big BLD. We aren't sure about FMC yet
You're clearly trying to keep me away, but don't worry I'll still turn up for clock :p. But seriously, it's awesome to have more events than last year and it's nearer for me :) Looking forward to it :)
Team BLD pls.

We did squeeze in just fine, and the rooms at UWE are bigger than yours I think.

I prefer cowboys, but I'll have animals just for you.

FMC may change, not sure yet! Interesting BLD is remaining off the menu though, sorry!

New UK competition: awesomeness!

I might come, but not sure, since I just got a new job and I have to make my work time fit with the possible flights.

By the way, I just love how these threads turn into a chat really quickly! :)

Zyrb: Registering will be possible sometime next week. Keep yourself updated at the WCA site. Registering is quite easy, just click on the competition and REGISTER ^^

Bring ALL your c0bes, there is always a possibility to sell/trade/buy c0bes if someone else also wants that.

I need V-cube 5-6-7 ^^ <3

I will post in here when the registration is open. It should be whenever Ron gets a moment to update the WCA site and there is a big button that says register. He is busy with the German Nationals competition at the moment though, so it may not happen until after this weekend. Bring all of your stuff and compete in as much as you can, that way you get a lot more out of the experience. Everyone is really friendly and we are so used to newcomers don't worry about doing 'noobish' because it happens all the time :p

OH also, Joey do you still have your destroyed 7x7? I have a broken piece in mine (Kris did it while I was away... while I admire his 7x7 habits, I wish he'd be more delicate...) and need a replacement :(

Ace!

If there's time for FMC, that'd also be ace! :)

Any closeby hotels?
Last time I was down in Bristol I stayed in the youth hostel .. and it's almost a stone's throw away from the venue -
