Can we change the dress code so we can all wear our favourite trans-gender outfits without feeling guilty

Can you please change the table type to dining, and food choice to anything with reggae reggae sauce?

Ok......time to drag things back on topic.

There will be no official Friday night event at this tournament. However, there will be a few tables set up at the Horwood Bar (see the campus map for directions) for a knock about in between drinking. All welcome.

Also, I've had a few people ask me about Handicap, and whether it'll be no snake. I'd like like to confirm that there will be no shot restrictions in this event. I did think about it a while ago, but as this is in the schedule early Saturday as a warm up for OS then it seemed stupid to ban any shot. So those of you who have nothing else on Garlando can relax.

There are multiple car parks across campus.

The map can be viewed here - http://www.esci.keele.ac.uk/kudis/_camp ... colour.pdf

The tournament will be in the union, building 39, so car park E would be your best bet. There's pay and display in use, not sure how much it is, don't think it's too expensive.

The arrangement for parking on campus is as follows: Pay and display machines are now available for the use of all visitors during daytime hours, or students may purchase an annual permit from 24-hour reception in the Darwin Building. Students and part-time tutors are advised that to avoid the probability of clamping, tickets should be purchased on weekdays, until 5.30pm. Evenings and weekends are free.

Horwood bar is worth a visit on the friday guys, the drinks are insanely cheap, so if you want to play some foos, and get some serious drinking under your belts I highly reccomend it. If you do by chance happen to arrive before 5:30 friday and you're attempting to park, make sure you pay and display, they are shameless bastards when it comes to ticketing, and you will undoubtedly get a parking ticket (I've racked up a few this year). Looking forward to the weekend!

So, I've managed to persuade my mates to come to Keele on the Sunday to compete in junior doubles. However, the first train into stoke-on-trent from Nottingham (where one of them will be coming from) arrives at 15:30 so they wouldn't be able to make it until 4 at the earliest. Could junior doubles be moved back to accommodate this?

Thanks,
Luke.

Oops, my bad. Seems like TheTrainLine isn't all it's cracked up to be.
