    My car:

    1. Leigh- pick you up from home about 9.30am?
    2. Jase- pick you up somewhere(?) about 10.00am? I don't mind picking you up at your place, it's up to you.

    Thought I'd check the Leeds Utd website and they're playing away, so hopefully we shouldn't have too much trouble with parking

    Im just off junction 61 of the A1, so it should be fairly easy to pick me up at the Durham services there. Hope this is ok.

    There is good parking at the Armouries - but if I remember rightly its a bit expensive?

    Car Parking prices are as follows:

    0-1hr £1.50
    1-2hrs £2.70
    2-3hrs £3.80
    3-4hrs £5.00
    4-7hrs £7.00
    7-12hrs £10.00

    kinda steep but the Armouries is free entry [face_dancing] and the parking can be split 3 ways for each car [face_batting]

    Jase- I know that services, so I'll pick you up there, no probs.
    The parking prices will be fine if we're splitting it.

    WhimOTW- It takes about two hours from Ncle, so I think we'll get there about 11.30am-12.00pm

    coolio - so are we gonna costume this one people or are we gonna go under cover in civvies.....?

    I guess we have to bear in mind that if we costume we will need to change if we go out after to the town or whatever and we will also have to carry bags with change of clothes etc in the cars...

    In hindsight, Im ok for non costuming unless anyone has other thoughts...?

    Well I'm always happy to costume, solong as i'm not doing it on my bill. Having a room to change in would be good if we were though, would also mean we have a place to leave the bags.

    I was under the impression we were meeting at the Armories at 12ish, but not being familiar with the Armories, not sure whereabouts - do they have more than one entrance?

    There's only one enterance to the Armouries & one large multi-storey carpark.

    [image=http://i33.photobucket.com/albums/d98/spike_thmid/leeds.gif]

    So I imagine hanging about the entrance till everyone has turned up.

    One slight word of warning - the sign post directions of the city centre ring road can be a bit confusing 8-}

    try these pdf's

    lol Even with a map we are hopeless, hence our every present TomTom, without which we'd never get there.

    Will print the maps though - TomTom not perfect ;)

    Any other plans for after the armories?

    Forbidden Planet, food ... etc ;)
    Tethys, if she gets net access, was going to book us into a curry place.

    I have just booked myself into the Travel Lodge (Leeds Central) for the Friday and Sat nights, so I just have to get rail tickets now then that is me sorted :D
