Re: Random 15 Championship 2018/19: Round 2

xcooler and Mr Orange headed up to Tangyland from Liverpool Street. Meanwhile, in Tangyland... actually it's probably better to start at the very beginning. Frantic opening of envelopes at Paddington (B/C/D) led to everyone running down one of the two staircases onto the Circle/District platforms. ...

Re: Random 15 Championship 2018/19: Round 1

Is TfL Rail included in the second envelope? (it is a separate category in the generator) It doesn't actually matter - the GEML is shut that day and Heathrow Connect hasn't actually been reprogrammed as TfL Rail... Current list of engineering works are: DLR: Stratford International - Canning Town (...

Re: Random 15 Championship 2018/19: Round 1

Not sure if I've asked this before, apologies if I have. It won't make a lot of difference anyway... Is Cannon Street one of the 15 or is it just a ceremonial starting point and not automatically one of the 15 (although it randomly could be)? Cannon Street, I believe, is one of the 15. Recommendati...

Re: Random 15 Championship 2017/18: Round 5

You may have spoken too soon - it looks like the RMT still plan to strike on the DLR that weekend. No doubt, using the disruption to the Marathon as their bargaining chip. Bugger that may screw up our parkrun plans, please let me know if you hear anything definite... If DLR is closed it's still onl...

Re: Random 15 Round 4.5 - 29th March 2014

Quick update: the pub we went to at the end of this impromptu round, the Bree Louise, is closing at the end of the month. It's a shame, it was a nice pub.

Re: Random 15 Championship 2017/18: Round 3

Early Warning At the pub there will be the usual game of darts. But in addition I will be asking for five volunteers to play a new board game that I have designed, based on the Random 15 format. Game should last about 2 hours, so we'll start after the Round 3 results have been read out. I'd like yo...
