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...

Thanks for the quick and helpful replies. After a more careful read of some of the stuff I'd skimmed through earlier, it does seem that as long as we have a shedload of cash in PAYG, everything should go smoothly, although it will end up costing quite a bit. And I'm not entirely sure how a refund w...
