All events marked as "evening" will commence between 18:00 and 18:30 local time.

ah ok didn't see that bit if it is 6.30pm could I suggest a central meeting point
Your "meeting point" will be either the staring station (Mouse) or your choice if this is not fixed (Nordic Combined + Tramlink) Can't really see any need for a central meet up?
So u can choose then start by yourself is there a end meet up as I only be up for day if can get a few hours off.

I was sure you did the Tramlink last time around? For that we normally meet in Croydon... And Nordic Combined part 2 is a pub quiz!!
The only rule is that you must start within the designated "window" and with the Nordic stop after an hour I think or thereabouts...

The TOSA here

--Biathlon. All challengers will meet in the first pub and start from there. The second and third pubs can be visited in any order. The fourth pub is fixed and all teams finish there.

--The Mouse will be started as per Zone 1 events, i.e. all challengers will start from the same station at the same time (but of course can choose which direction you depart on the first train after the start). Once finished we meet up at usual pub (Bricklayers Arms) for results.

--Tramlink. There will be no fixed start, challengers can choose their own start station and depart within a set time window. Once finished, there will be a fast food/pub meet for results.

--Nordic Combined. There is no fixed start for this either, but you only have 1 hour on the clock to visit as many unique stations as possible in ONE attempt. All challengers then meet back up again for a pub quiz. Points obtained from both parts of this challenge will then added together to give your total score.

Random 15 and Full Network need no explanation. Full details in the individual event pages which will appear about a month before the actual event.

Thanks.
This is a Central line train to "Woodford via Hainault"- it always is, except when you actually want one!

I am planning on making the first and fourth pubs for the Biathlon, The Bricklayers Arms and William IV- both of which have hosted these events before and I am usually able to reserve these in advance. Unsure yet which way round these will appear.

Interesting as this wasn't an option previously on a full network can the night tube be used as Friday night is there a start time deadline Tosa
