Event Report

Please check your results carefully for spelling/club/age group/correct timing and score, and let us know asap of any errors. If your score is not what you were expecting, and you don't feature in the wrong-answers list, one of us has made a mistake.

Don't forget that if you can't make a particular event, you can get the map and questions from Grahame , and run by yourself before or after the day, and have your score included.

Reserving a map

We shall be printing maps next weekend, so please email Grahame Crawshaw by midnight on Friday 12th February to reserve a map, indicating the number of maps required. And if you are planning to eat in the pub (see below) - let him know that as well!

Parking

The pub has a relatively small car park (approx. 20 spaces), and there are other small public car parks across the road.  There is a large (300 spaces) public car park between Churchill Way and Duke Street – just South of Cinemac/The Old Sunday School Heritage centre: Duke St, Macclesfield  SK11 6UR (vehicle access to the car park is via Roe St and right onto Duke Street, or Park Green and left onto Duke Street).

Early arrivals (before 6pm) may need to pay for a ticket.  From here, walk south (right) down Duke Street and turn right into Park Green to reach the pub (estimated walking time approx. 2 mins).

Food

Food is from the standard Wetherspoons menu: although you can choose your meal on the night, the pub manager has asked that we give an approximate idea of numbers.

Safety information

The northern part of the map is bisected by the Silk Road dual carriageway.  This must not be crossed except at marked bridges and crossing points.  ‘Tesco roundabout’ is also out of bounds.  The major roads are likely to remain busy throughout the event so please exercise caution when crossing.  The map also contains a section of canal towpath, which may be hazardous if the weather is icy and is invariably muddy.
