  As people are asking and it's about time I posted this, here we go.........

 When: Saturday 30th May

 Where: Herbert Manzoni Building, Loughborough University, Loughborough.

 Entry: £2.00 entry to Con, you'll need Patches for the UFS Event though.

 Starts: Registration starts at 10:00, Tournament starts at 10:30.

 Format: Block 3 Constructed.

 

 

 Prizes: To Be Announced, but there will be lots. 

 

 Getting there:

 By Car:

 Loughborough is very near to the M1 motorway, you need to leave it at Junction 23, which is the A512 New Ashby Road. You need to continue down the A512 for about 1 mile, then trurn Right on to the A6004, Epinal Way. The entrance to the University is on the Right, follow sighns for the Herbert Manzoni Building. Please note, I don't drive, I would check the directions yourself before leaving. 

 

 

 By Rail:

 Loughborough is a mainline train station on the London St Pancras to Nottingham line. There are many regular trains from both directions, but please be warned Loughborough has a short platform and you will need to be in the Front Four carriages to get of. Trust me on this, its not much fun trying to leg it down a train with bags because nobody told you this before the train pulled in.  Anybody needing train information should check out: http://www.nationalrail.co.uk/ 

 By Air:

 

 The nearest Airport to Loughborough is East Midlands Airport. The airport operates a shuttle bus in to Loughborough called Skylink. This service is 24 hour and runs between the Airport and Loughborough Train Station. The journey from the airport in to Loughborough takes roughly 30 minuters. For more information check out: http://www.eastmidla...com/emaweb.nsf 

 

 

 Staying there:

 Loughborough offers varying accomodation, from traditional B&Bs to hotels of varying prices. Here are a few links to check out:

http://www.greatcentralhotel.co.uk/

http://www.thecedarshotel.com/

http://www.ramadalou...roughhotel.com/

http://www.bedandbre...country=England

 With a bit of hunting I'm sure there will be some thing for everyone. 

 The T Shirt:

 I will be doing a Limited Edition T Shirt for the event, this will again be restricted to 24 shirts as with the Street Fighter Nationals. The design for the back of the shirt will be:

 The shirts will be £12.50, with all profits going to charity again. 

 For more information regarding the Convention please check out: http://www.donkeycon.co.uk/index.php

 

 If anybody has any questions please post here or email me at: steveg@esdeviumgames.com

  Maybe you have some godlike powers or you are an uber haxxor, who knows? I think it is more like you have a certain amount of time after you initially post to go back and edit, after that you are boned. Whatever it is, I can edit the original post.

Steve,

Does Tyler want people to register for the event on his website?  It seems to imply that from the DonkeyCon weblink you provided.

You can only edit your posts for 5 minutes, after which the link disappears.

But, if you log in and scroll to the first post you should still have a link to "edit topic" where you can change the date :)

Edit: Hmm. Apparently the link doesn't exist any more. Which is really weird since a few times I've used it a few days after I posted a thread to edit the first post. Maybe it only occurs when the moon is full or something....

Edit 2: Wtf? It's back again. It looks like if you reply to your own thread it gives you an edit topic button on your first post for a few minutes. So, if you reply to this you should be able to change the date by going back to the top of the page and clicking edit topic. I love these forums so much : )

 That was not the intention, it is also not my fault, I'm blaming it totally on this daft site and trying to jump between about four other tabs at the same time, my head hurt yesterday...........

 @ Joe

 Hell yeah on the Chinese front, I was going to try and organise something anyway, major get together before going to the games club sort of thing.
