Having rechecked my shift schedule I'm afraid I'm going to have to withdraw my tentative entry for this year's Z1 cup, as I'm starting a run of nights that evening.

It's a shame, I think I'd be able to give a good account of myself this year now that I can actually run properly!

Post Challenge meet up pub update:

The William IV is due to reopen tomorrow but having had a peek through the windows today revealed the dartboard is no longer there and pool tables put in the area where the oche was.

Therefore I have provisionally booked us tables at The Lord Palmerston, Walthamstow which is near both Walthamstow Central (routes W11/W15) or Blackhorse Road stations (route 123).

This pub is at 252-254 Forest Road, Walthamstow, E17 5JN (corner of Palmerston Road).
This is a Central line train to "Woodford via Hainault"- it always is, except when you actually want one!

It might be a good idea to change the event close down each year.

Am I right in thinking this is the 14th Zone 1 day - Started in 2005? and does anyone have a list of all the starting stations drawn so far?

I am sure it was Vauxhall as well and was "chosen" not drawn - Tubeguru / Moley / Geoff :?: :?:

Also I would have thought it was excluded from all the draws since :?:

Here you go twas Vauxhall in 2004 - below posted by Mr Guru here...

viewtopic.php?f=4&t=19

"After careful consultation with Ewan Spence, the organiser of the 2004 Zone 1 Challenge, we can exclusively reveal that the second Zone 1 Challenge will take place on Friday the 20th of May, 2005.

The last Challenge started at Vauxhall but this time they're making it more interesting by randomly picking the start station before setting off!

After all, if it wasn't shaken it up, everyone would just do what they did last time, and where's the fun in that?
See the 2005 Zone 1 Challenge Page for full details."

So this is the 15th year :shock: :shock: :P :P

Have a fun day folks; thinking of you all. Sorry I can't be with you this time. :(
After you, madam - I'll wait for the next direct train to Mill Hill East.

I'll bring along my Underground board game for its first outing. Start at 17:00 in pub and I will need five players. Any volunteers?
