Rainhill (Merseyside) Grand Prix

Postby Chris » Sun Mar 10, 2013 8:18 pm

The first Saturday in April sees us return to Rainhill in Merseyside. A full-day of events will include the massively popular 'Norway Open' individual quiz, followed by an afternoon fun team table quiz. Another trip to the Blue Mango Indian Restaurant is also in the offing - after the usual drinks that follow the conclusion to the day's (formal) quizzing. Full details to follow as we get nearer to 6th April.

Is there any timings for the Rainhill GP yet, Chris?

I'd like to get train tickets etc. booked if possible.

I would get booked as soon as you can, David, given that it is Grand National Day, which of course means that trains may be a) full and b) expensive

Thanks both - as luck would have it we're visiting Stafford that weekend so I'll pop up from there (I wouldn't make it otherwise). Hopefully should be able to get a ticket but I'll book online now just in case.
