Huh, those are good questions.

I'm usually good at linking to stuff, but I have no idea how I even know that there's a tourney on in Bristol this weekend. There's nothing sticky'd on their forum... er, Rob, Andy? :?

From past experience I'm guessing it starts at 11am 'til about 4-5pm. (So, same as the recent Reading tourney.)

It takes a couple of hours each way to Bristol, so we'd look to leave Oxford on the train at ~8am and get back for ~8pm, those sorts of times. It's a whole day affair, brightened by the prospect of good banter with the friendly Bristol crew. The venue is smack dab in the center of Bristol so there's no faffing about with taxis or buses once we step off the train.

Aw. I appear to have goober'd up the National Rail Journey Planner form earlier today 'cos I just tried it again and now the price has jumped to £51 return. I was sure I selected return earlier but evidently not.

£51? Mmm. That seems a fair old whack for a day of NetRunner. Mmm. I'm wavering now. I'm going to see what everyone else thinks.

£51! In my day you could've gone to Blackpool for the same amount... with a packed lunch thrown in! Prices these days, I don't know.

I'm wavering on price and lack of any appealing decks to take. I'm wary of pushing myself to these things; I maintain my enjoyment of the game by not getting too stressed out by such things and burning out. A distant tournament at large expense isn't on my 'no stress!' list...

I think I'll give this a pass. I also looked into why it's so expensive - looks like engineering works mean the train is being diverted. Normally you can change at Didcot Parkway, but it's not stopping there, forcing a trip to Reading first. So I think they're charging extra for that pleasure.

Yeah, the £51 ticket killed it for me.

Aw. Disappointed. It's always a special kind of joy to lay a cable in the Hawaiian-themed loos at Excelsior. The Oxford Massive will return to Bristol in the new year, never fear. Andy, Rob, King Mob, and the rest... Merry Xmas!

I might save the Tower of Power until next time then, and play some other garbage instead.
