What are you guys doing for accommodation?

Just looked at flights to Dusseldorf Weeze airport - £32 from stansted...!

If I'm going it needs to be cheap ya.

Also would need partners for everything...

Waiting for the info pack before sorting out accom at the venue - assume they're going to have some special offer for foosers, as usually you can't booked Centre Parc lodges for just 2/3 nights etc.

Also waiting on seeing whos up for coming a bit earlier before looking into hotels in Düsseldorf for the 1/2 nights pre tournament.

I also need an OD partner. But having seen you at the Bonzini wcs and poor old Dave Z, not sure if I should offer :wink:

There is accom info for centre parcs on the itsf website - I had a quick look yesterday - don't have the link at hand but it should be on there. I will prob need to work on Monday as I have limited holiday left.

I was thinking more about accom in Dusseldorf for the 2 days before as definitely up for going there with £32 flights...Also how were u planning on goin from there to Centre parcs?

Looking at the package I will need partners for Open, Semi Pro and Mixed Doubles.

Joe they don't normally let you book a shorter duration although they may have a discounted foos rate. Last year the price halved by booking last minute so it may be wise to book a rate you can cancel in case they do the same again this year.

I am considering taking the Stansted - Dusseldorf flight Thurs out and Mon back leaving a day on Monday to go to Dusseldorf.

The Darlo bunch are possibles for this but it would all depend on accommodation prices at the Parc.We can get there and back for £60-£70 a head but don't want to pay crazy Parc prices.Will check it out.

Sarah and Laura are hiring a car, so we can easily get about if we find anything worth doing in that general area of Germany too etc.

I'll start looking into Dusseldorf hotels this weekend.

I am assuming the organisers would have sorted out with the Centre Parcs that accom can be booked for only 3 nights - with only having a 3 day tournament they'd be crazy if they haven't! I'll look into this too - obv the more British guys we can get into one the better!

That would be nice but it hasn't happened at the last few tournaments I've been to at centerparks! Stayed at this centreparks for the Leo WCS last year and I think we booked the villa for the week.

When are you guys planning on departing UK and returning??

The cheapest way is for loads of people to share a large lodge (others could kip on the floor etc), the most expensive is to have a single room in the hotel-style accom.

This place defines the 'middle of nowhere' so it may be worth stocking up on food/bottled water/snacks before you get there as the on-site food and provisions are expensive.

Our current plans are to leave Wednesday morning, head back some point Monday.

And yes, I plan to stock up on loads of food in Düsseldorf before heading to the Centre Parcs. I really hope they have a decent kitchen, as being able to cook while away has massive appeal.
