How much adaptation does a route have to have before it is a different route?

No radical changes for the Zone 1 logo this year, I liked the previous one I made in 2011, therefore I have retained it for this year.

I still haven't done the Parliamentary train from Kensington Olympia to Wandsworth Road, due for imminent withdrawal. Is anyone else wanting to do this on Z1 day before the meet up?

I would also like to pop and say hi to Tubeguru after the challenge has ended, at Paddington. I hope this wouldn't be too disruptive to proceedings...

Don't forget the Tuesday's only replacement bus between Ealing Broadway and Wandsworth Road is still operating, it has had another contract entension!

The results to the Zone 1 will be announced at 1800, so please ensure you are present so all the times can be collected.

As long as at least one member of your team is present to hand me your "entry card" and Tube Map detailing the route taken, this will suffice.

hakan and lars and patrick (the swedish contigent have to be favourites in my book with 3 past wins for zone 1) 2-1
Kevin brown 3-1 (come on this year has to be a brown win after all these years and current zone 1 record holder)
glen 3-1 (current zone 1 record holder new breed of tube challenger will record holder use the route he used though?)
peter 4-1 (won zone 1 in past will he concetrate on this though or save some energy to win random 15 championship next day?)
tangy 5-1 (twice 2nd though the person whom put him into 2nd both times is not there will this spur martin on to victory)
nozza 6-1 (nozza like kevin overdue a win in this will baldies win the day?)
iain 8-1 (has one of the best rookie times for the challenge if his knee holds up could be a dark horse?)
tractakid 10-1 (spurred on by completing 2 full networks and creator of a new and fresh challenges posh&royal can he use skills to upset?)
nigel 11-1 (overground king narrowly missed out last year will wrong choice of clothing be his downfall?)
starkey 12-1 (allthough no news of whether young starkey is taking part a renewed interest seeing as his record was broken may encourage to take part?)
Team Rhys 16-1 (this means either rhys have shown willingness and speed and web building to random 15 escapades would a zone 1 win rocket them up tube rankings and then on to 270 and record?)
garion 18-1 (although garion has a previous win to his cards will the loss of winning colleague dampen his spirits)

other 20-1 (i will list any others in this catergory as im not sure there are coming or wish to take part)

tubeguru 20-1 (can he be persueded to come out of retirement and stop being a grumpy old git)
geoff 20-1 (can he also be prepared to attend the grand event seeing as he is one the original few)
adham fisher 20-1(if he remembers to turn into the correct farringdon station this time perhaps with that speed a dark horse)
sam 20-1 (a 2 time and most successful female challenger what would a zone 1 win do for her standing)
any brown that is not kevin 20-1 anthony will he also rekindle his love of tube now he has new job!
Other at 20-1 please.

See you tomorrow.
