  1. Sorry, but I won’t be there – visiting London is a terrifying experience for me and a waste of money which I can ill afford
    Say hello to everyone from me, Encota!

  2. I’m with you Roy. I wouldn’t quite put London at the level of ‘terrifying’, but would class it as ‘deeply unpleasant’.

    Perhaps when HS2 is built, they might consider meeting somewhere outside the M25. We have pubs and restaurants out here too, you know!

    1. For a while the Championships were held in Cheltenham, in conjunction with the Literary Festival. Apparently it became too expensive so they are now held at the Times offices in London.

  3. Ah The George! Frequented it quite a bit when I was a student up the road. A pity I cannot make it because I would have loved to revisit.

  4. I would love to be there, but sadly it clashes with a rugby commitment at my local club.
    I will definitely be there for the gathering in May.
    Best wishes to all.
