been researching travel since its no longer possible to fly direct into EMA from aberdeen or inverness and it looking very likely i wont be able to make it. the train would mean me leaving first thing on a friday and arriving late home on a monday with 3 nights in a hotel i need to find somewhere less time consuming and expensive in comparison to what i am playing for to make it back onto the felt

looks like i am looking for somewhere round manchester leeds birmingham or luton to play

Can you fly to Tees Valley? There are decent deals on trains from Darlington to Nottingham. I would be pleased to move you from airport to rail station.
If I get to play I’d just drive you there and back.

thank you

i live 90 minutes away from Aberdeen and Inverness it makes any travel plans without a direct flight too long, and leaving early friday and arriving home late on a monday would be a long time away from home. Doubt my body would cope with that anymore.

Going to try and find somewhere i can get to and from with just the one night stay over and get a game of poker in somewhere

That's fair enough, pretty sure there's still quite a few on here that play there semi regularly at least. Sure if you put a flag up, you'd be able to get a decent weekend sorted. Couldn't comment on what the poker would be like though lol

yeah edinburgh is handy due to being able to drive or train it in 4-5 hours but luton birmingham etc with direct flights are actually a little quicker but the direct flight times can get in way

anyway i am going to step aside for the team event to allow the team to prepare properly with shorts etc ad wish you all the best of luck and looking forward to some updates

Hi Chief

There is an early morning flight (9ish) from Aberdeen to Brum - Im not sure of the APAT tourney timings but f you could do that I will pick you up from airport drop you at your chosen hotel/lodgings and then onto DTD for around 12.30/1 ish.

Im afraid I couldnt do the return on Monday but there is a good train service to Birmingham which should suit the flights back?

Any good?

thanks for the offer boss, but i struggle to get into a car unless its drivers seat of a 3 door car. I did look at that flight and getting a train through but it would mean me leaving house at 5.30 to get to airport for 7am (they want wheelchair users there 2 hours before flight) which would mean waking up at 4am just makes its too long a day ( i am getting old)

Ah ok 2 hours seems a trifle long time to be there before the flight.

Also Ive got an old volvo suv which is fairly high up off the ground so maybe another hurdle.

I appreciate the long day bit though (Im a bit older)  Wink

UK TEAM CHAMPIONSHIP, 1ST-2ND FEB 2020

The UK Team Championship will take place at the home of UK poker, Dusk Till Dawn (DTD) on Saturday 1st Feb/Sunday 2nd Feb 2020.

We look forward to hosting all those playing over the weekend, with a full schedule of side events, and we will be providing a full player tracking and ongoing team score updating service throughout the Main Event, and a live update/blog with pictures via the APAT Website/Forum.

The table draw/seating plan will be available via the APAT Forum from 9pm on Sunday 12th January.

Venue:

Dusk Till Dawn, Boulevard Retail Park, Redfield Way, Lenton, NG7 2UW
Tele:  0115 8454300
Web: HERE

All players must be a member of DTD, and hold an active Party Poker Live online poker account, both of which are free - photo ID in the form of a passport or driving licence is needed to confirm membership at DTD.  If you already have an active membership of DTD then you need to bring your membership card to use at the reception desk to gain entry each day.  If not a member of DTD, or you are unsure as to having an 'active membership', then you should ensure you bring either your passport or your driving licence as failure to turn up with either will mean you will not be allowed to enter the venue.

Free parking is available at DTD.

DTD will be open as follows:

Fri 31st - from 7pm
Sat 1st - from 12 noon
Sun 2nd - from 12 noon

Ill PM all team members once I know the details of how to register for the event and get T shirt sizes etc

Have booked Travelodge Riverside Fri - Sun.
As Friday is 31st is probably my busiest day of year, I probably wont make it for the Friday night bounty comp, but will be in DTD at some stage late on Friday.
Look forward to seeing/meeting you there
