You are invited to the UK Open Sudoku and Puzzle Tournament 28-29 April 2012
This will be hosted by UK Puzzle Association, but everyone is welcome: members, non-members and players from other countries.
It will be like WSC+WPC in a weekend, there will be multi-round Sudoku and Puzzle competitions, with over 6 hours of puzzles, plus a team competition and solving workshop.
Only £39 registration fee!
To register, email firstname.lastname@example.org
The tournament will be held at the Trafford Centre
in Manchester. The competition will take place at Chill Factore
which is an extraordinary 'indoor ski resort'.
The Trafford Centre is one of Europe’s largest shopping malls and is 5km from Manchester United’s famous Old Trafford ground. It is 16km from Manchester International Airport, and 10km from Manchester Piccadilly Rail Station.Accommodation
The recommended hotel is the Premier Inn Trafford Centre West, which is only a short walk away from the venue. The hotel is not included in the registration fee and you will need to book it yourself separately (http://www.premierinn.com
) once your registration is confirmed. Their current offer is £29 for a room with 2 double beds, which would be suitable for either a single person or two people sharing. But this price will probably increase towards their standard £72 price as the date gets closer, so you are advised to book early. Breakfast is extra.Planned Schedule
