We just heard that 5 of the Scottish crew are heading down to the BKO. Great stuff.
Seems like a good time to announce that the titles of
Scottish...
Welsh...
Northern Irish...
English...
....Kendama Champion are up for grabs for people who hail from those countries.

Kendama Europe will be trading at BKO.

@mreasyguy At least 8 other people are staying at http://www.almondsburyinterchangehotel.com, but it is a bit of a trek outside the city.

Plans for the Saturday!
12:00 - 13:00 Meet up by the fountains between St Augustine's Parade and Broad Quay. Hang out and click.
13.00 - 18:00 Wander on a little walking tour of Bristol, via college green, cabot tower, etc, ending up near the suspension bridge. Plenty of playing and sightseeing en route.
(For those hoping to meet us later in the day, an approximate route is shown on the maps. Please note, this is liable to change! We plan on having some phone-trackers active, so people can try and find us!)
19:00 Evening meal



That's the good weather plan. If things are looking a bit grim, then we'll probably be spending a lot more time in cafes, etc!

Also I may be bringing the support team, i.e. Chris.

Right now, I don't think I'll be able to come, it may change during the following weeks, but I'm not counting on it.

In any case, if I go it will be for the full weekend and to enter advanced.
