Post by: The Void on 08 May, 2018, 14:59:23
Hi, I'm running some summer outdoor "meet-comps" for Royal Kendama.
(http://kendama.co.uk/images/RoyalParking2018.jpg)

Entry fee: £5, OR £3 if you compete with your own Royal Kendama.
There will be at least 1 XL and 1 Plush to be won at each event.

For each event, the timetable will be:
12:00-14:00 Meet up, jam, and register to enter
14:00-16:00 COMP!
16:00+        Kyu/Dan gradings (http://kendama.co.uk/exam.html) for anyone who wants one. (Kyu grading included free with entry fee)

COMP:
5 divisions, everyone enters all 5 divisions.
SOLID STATES; SPEED SEEDS; ROUNDABOUT; PROUDFOOT; TURNIP STEW. (Rules/tricks will be revealed on the day. Nothing too crazy - don't panic! ;) )
Overall winner gets the XL. A division winner will be picked at random to win the Plush (This will be a different person to the overall winner). Possible spot prizes too (tbc).

Eeek, the dreaded words "replacement bus service". I'll be driving then.
Meanwhile, word of mouth sounds like we'll be getting double figures, so that's good.

Today I finalised the formats for Newport. Had a few run-throughs too.
Also, the locations for Brighton and Bristol confirmed. (See first post in this thread.)

Weather forecast for Newport is okay. Might get a passing shower (coffee break!), but should be a reasonable day. Bring a hat and coat everyone!

If driving there is free parking on two sides of the park, top and right hand side.

If no space let me know as I do have visitor passes so can squeeze a few cars outside my house/ parking zone, only a bit of a hill to walk up from mine to get to the park.

Also, anyone travelling by train (well replacement bus service) drop me a PM as i can meet you to walk there as I live just 1 min away from the station.

Waterloo Road and Friars Lane (south side), but not Belle Vue Lane. Try NP20 4FP. Or if there are no spaces, try NP20 2GH, which is ~1km walk away.

What time are we doing on Sunday in Bristol? Are you still thinking of doing it a St George park?

Have you seen the weather forecast for tomorrow @The Void ?
Title: Re: Royal Parking - Newport/Brighton/Bristol
Post by: The Void on 11 August, 2018, 12:11:03
I've been keeping an eye on it all week, @Woodsy . It keeps changing! Okay, it's not brilliant, but the forecast as I type is ~50% chance of showers.

The meet is on. Bring a hat and a coat, everybody!

Maybe a light shower or two, but should be mostly tolerable. See you tomorrow, folks.
