  1. Just wondered where people are staying for Harrogate. Rainford are in the Holiday inn next to the Conference Centre (I think).

    Emley are staying at home,

    at least until the day, when we'll come up by coach!

    Ripon?? is that the closest you could find? They have to think about the venue in terms of accessability and facities - not just the cheapest venue to get all the bands in!

    Ah, we stopped there two years ago (along with Pemberton which was interesting sharing with a rival 1st Section band, great fun they even let us join in their victory celebrations), not bad, though we did have to educate them as to what time a hotel bar should shut! They actually re-opened for us tho and reduced the price of the beer for guests staying in the hotel!

    As for Drig, we're stopping at home this year and then bobbing up on a coach to a top-secret rehearsal location prior to descending on the Conference Centre. Not sure where we will be relaxing after playing yet (any suggestions people?). Didn't find a bar in the Conference Centre last time as we had the hotel one next door (is there one that will be open?).

    There's definately a bar in the conference centre. I spent about 8 hours there last year just to make sure!

    Lizzie, we're staying at the Leeds Parkway Ramada but you probably know that already!!
    It's half way between Leeds and Harrogate which is OK if you're not travelling from London and have to pay a £15 taxi fare from either Leeds or Harrogate!! Tight aren't I?

    Well, you always hop on the X84 bus from Leeds (from the main bus station) and pay about £2.00 ;)

    Good-o! Can't be a proper contest venue without a bar!!

    But it only serves electric soup. Take your taste buds to the Old Bell and treat them to some proper ale.
