Hi All,
Please don't forget to register with myself for attendance at this years tournaments - liane@ukpuzzles.org .

I've been asked a couple of questions:
To get to the hotel from the rail stations the buses run regularly (combined 5 minute service) - http://www.tfl.gov.uk/tfl/gettingaround ... -11307.pdf shows the routes. Local expert knowledge says that the T33 stops at stop T (A on the way back) on Old Farleigh Road and there is a side entrance to the hotel there. Others stop at stops K (S on the way back) but there's an extra 150m to walk.

Awards:
We will award perpetual trophies for the winners of the Sudoku and Puzzle events, with small awards to third place in each.
There will also be a small award to the best lady, best person over 45 and best international competitor.
The newcomer award will be to the person that hasn't taken part in any UKPA competition previously (open or on-line).
