WQC Sign Up and Travel - Masham

Postby Jane » Mon May 20, 2013 7:34 am

Please let us know here that you plan to come to the World Quizzing Championships event in Masham. We will be working out transport to and from Northallerton Station for the event, so please let us know what times you plan to arrive and depart Northallerton so we can arrange minibus/taxis - depending on which is less expense/more convenient. Please email travel@quizzing.co.uk with your train times etc.

Full details on the WQC British venues can be found here: viewtopic.php?f=6&t=342

I'll be attending, although I may not be very awake depending what time my coach gets back from Normandy the previous night.

Chris

Can you add me to the list, please?
I'm afraid that I'll need to leave immediately after the buffet (brother's wedding anniversary)

Though I'm not coming to Masham I thought I'd mention it is possible to get to Masham from Northallerton by public transport - but not on Sunday.

MONDAY TO SATURDAY

Dales and District Bus No 73 goes from Northallerton to Bedale at (approx.) 9 and 39 minutes past each hour, journey time is 24 minutes. Last bus is at 1811. Return buses from Bedale at 5 and 35 minutes past each hour. Last bus is at 1805.

From Bedale to Masham there are 4 buses a day - Dales and District 144 - 0905,1035,1205 and 1405. Journey time is 25 minutes. Buses return at 0930,1100,1230 and 1430.

So - overall journey time is approx. 1 hour as the buses are scheduled to connect at Bedale.

SUNDAY

Buses run from Bedale to Northallerton only - 0905 1205 1535 and 1825. Returning at 0933,1233, 1633 and 1853.

There is no service from Bedale to Masham on Sundays.

Following much umm-ing and ahh-ing, I'll be heading up to Masham on Saturday morning. Mostly in order to take in Scott's music quiz, which I see is scheduled for 4pm. This just happens to be the same time as The Derby is off. Assuming Masham Town Hall has a telly (?) would there be any chance of making this a 4.10pm start, as long as that doesn't inconvenience anyone? Ta.

ADG.

[We'll see what we can do Al. The venue has wifi so I am sure we'd be able to get you a screen of some dimension or other to view it on - hopefully the big screen via my laptop/projector. Chris]

The food order is going in before too long. Do we need to order food for you?
