Random 15 Championship 2017/18: Round 6

Post by tangy » 13 May 2018, 10:11

Hello and welcome to the 2017/18 Random 15 Championship. I am your host (commonly known to regulars as the BERC when I am hosting Random 15 challenges). The Random 15 Challenge is just that, visit 15 randomly selected stations that feature on the Tube Map and/or London Connections Map (usually within zones 1-2 and using the Underground network only). There will be certain rounds within the championship that are a variation of this such as adding an extra zone/s or network/s e.g. DLR, National Rail onto the challenge and these are known as "twist" rounds.

The rules of the Random 15 Challenge are unchanged from last season but if anyone is not familiar with these (or how the scoring works), they can be read here: http://www.explorerticket.co.uk/tubecha ... 5rules.htm

The 2017/18 season's finale, your last chance to increase your position on the league table. Who will be crowned champion this season?

When: Saturday 2nd June 2018 12:30 UK local time.
Pre-Challenge meet up point: TO BE ADVISED (to be generated randomly)
Post challenge meet up point: The Bricklayers Arms pub, Gresse Street (off TCR, the road).
Variant: Normal round. 15 London Underground stations within zones 1 and 2 only.
Time limit for completing: Normal round, 4 hour time limit.

Closures affecting the challenge:
--Currently there is NO scheduled engineering work planned on any TfL rail mode of transport.

Other engineering work that may affect you:
--There is no National Rail engineering works that will affect travel in zones 1 and 2 this weekend.

All welcome, Please advise me if you are attending. Thank you.
