    I'm having real difficulty with this one because we find out some sensitive information today or Monday. A certain babysitter may dramatically change his mind should it not go his way. I'm sorry it's late but I will let you know by Monday evening.

    Thanks for your patience, team. I really hope we can make it.

    We'll be there for the Friday evening muffest. I envisage quite a few will. Think We'll probably get to the hotel around 9pm ish.

    So, for final confirmation, that's MADV and Angel1975 Confirmed!

    ok then!

    Myself and Jen are booked in at the Blueberry hotel - this is definitely the hotel of choice, as its about a 30 second walk from the casino. We'll be arriving on friday evening, so just give me a ring when you get there Smile (all of team should have my number now i think)

    This link should give you 2 nights double room on the fri and sat for 49 a night... http://www.laterooms.com/en/p1789/pv14505045/hotel-reservations/159001_blueberry-hotel-birmingham-birmingham.aspx?cur=GBP&n=2&d=20100205

    If youre not driving, I would recommend a taxi from city centre/train station to the hotel/casino, i got the bus last time, which passed through beirut and moss-side en-route.... not overly recommended.

    The team game is from 1pm-9pm on saturday, and playing to conclusion on sunday from 3pm. Altough check out from hotel is at 11, its close enough to casino to leave luggage there on sunday avo.

    Details on the casino itself are here http://www.gentingcasinos.co.uk/circus/casino/3/birmingham-star-city.html
