Re: Random 15 Championship 2019/20: Round 4

Unfortunate that it has come to this, however I fully agree that cancellation is the best option. Who knows what lies ahead for the world over the next few weeks and months but I have no doubt that we will all see each other soon.

Good luck. Travel safe!

Spoons is normally starting somewhere between 10:00 and 10:30 depending on Parkrun participants and distance to travel from finish.

Re: Random 15 Championship 2019/20: Round 4

I'll turn up for the R15. Solo this time I think though!
Parkrun... Yes, but will choose a location based on where others are going.
Spoons... A necessity after Parkrun, but location dependent.

I’m here at Birmingham New Street until 19:45. Curry is at Manzil’s at 20:00.
This was just a convoluted excuse to go for a curry. Tasty curry!

I think I may have broken one record today - 2h22 from start station to second station in a R15!
Saw you at Leamington Spa. I did shout but you didn't hear me.

Re: Birmingham R15

Route v1 planned. Predicted finish time classified for now.

(although subsequently revised due to accidentally going back in time by an hour at one point...)

Re: Birmingham R15

Peaky Blinders Top Tip: Most lines in Birmingham have 15-30 min frequency. But Stratford-on-Avon stoppers and Coventry-Leamington Spa via Kenilworth are only hourly. Even worse are Chiltern’s Stratford-On-Avon-Leamington Spa trains, which are every two hours, so you will need to plan the south-east...

For reference if anyone finds themselves stuck there... the pub The Warwickshire Lad next to Wood Green station is also very nice :)
I think you mean Wood End. If you end up at Wood Green on the Piccadilly line, your route planning has gone seriously wrong. 😊
Oops, yes. Wood End.

Post meet up on Sat evening is Manzil’s Restaurant, 112 Digbeth, B5 6DT. It is 5 mins walk from Moor Street.
What time are we expected and is "tufnellpark" the codeword for admittance?

Re: Birmingham R15

By order of the Peaky Blinders…. a timed photo of each station, showing clearly the station name. You do not need to do this for your first station, if you depart from Birmingham New Street. Please clarify. Intending to time using phone and take photos from phone. Cannot take photo of phone from ph...
