Ok just a few points/questions etc.

How are people getting to Brighton and on which day?

How much is the train fare from Victoria, anyone know? (Yes I'm too lazy to look it up :) )

Who's meeting up pre-race and/or post-race on the day?

Also of those partying in Brighton the night before, shall we meet up before the meal and where/what time etc?

And after the meal?

Night before - Meal at Cafe Pasta 8pm
36 Ship Street,
Telephone: 01273 727 583

On the day arrangements as I understand are

Pre-race 10.00am - Entrance to the Palace Pier

Post-race - Pub at the end of the Pier (Name to be confined by a local please!)

Thoughts/answers anyone?

Oh and baggage and shower facilities?

I can't decide whether to drive or get the train.

I don't want to be the only one not drinking after the race. Oh sod it I'll get the train :)

Apparently there are shower facilities about 2k from the start (according to the ActiveEurope page).

I'm getting the train down from Victoria, probably about lunchtime or so. Will spend the afternoon having a bit of a wander round Brighton (very exciting, seeing as I've never been there before).

We could all arrange to meet for a pint before the meal I reckon. Perhaps mass swapping of mobile numbers is in order?

Yeah I think swapping mob numbers are a good idea. Ok so I've already got yours, but anyone else?

I want to travel about that time too.

I think I'll check out the time table and engineering works.

So you'll be wandering around Brighton? Sampling the deleights?!!!
12/11/2002 at 14:24
That's the plan Jon. Should be quite pleasant. Might go to the Jog Shop as well, that's meant to have a lot of stuff that could be worth buying.
12/11/2002 at 14:28
The timetable address.

Looks like the fare from London Victoria is £15.10 or thereabouts.

Behave yourself Jon
12/11/2002 at 15:02
Why's he got to behave himself venon?

I was merely saying that you could sample the delights of Brighton ie. sticks of rock, deck chairs, weird piercing shops, nice, fancy hotel rooms ... etc...

I'll be at the pre race thing. Don't think I'll be bringing the Snickettes to the pub -and I'm driving too.

Are you on or off the sauce Jon?

For those not already aware of it, Brighton has a reputation as a shirt lifter's paradise.

Minky is:

A) sober

B) aware of Brighton's reputation as a "Shirt lifter's paradise"

C) Holding a signing of race numbers from 1pm - 1.05pm
