The BHGS Challenge 5-6 April 2014

Post by madaxeman » Wed Jan 01, 2014 10:29 pm

The BHGS Challenge - Oxford running over the weekend of 5th-6th April just before Easter on the Wheatley Campus of Oxford Brookes University just outside Oxford.

The BHGS Challenge is our second largest tournament of the year, with a 5-round (3 + 2 Sat/Sun) "Any Army, 1570-1629" themed FoGR competition. Online booking is now open with an entry fee of £30.

FoGR is currently the most popular period in the whole event, with 50% more bookings so far than FoGAM :wink:

hallo,
we are a group of friends from Italy. We would try to partecipate to the tournament.
Which is the best airport to choose?
I have seen that there is a flight that departs from Heatrow at 20 p.m. on Sunday. Is it possible to partecipate to the tournament and take it?

Thanks!
Andrea

There is a direct bus service between the centre of Oxford and London Heathrow (http://airline.oxfordbus.co.uk/).

It takes about 80 minutes depending on traffic. You would need to add some time to get from the Wheatley Campus to where you can collect the bus which does not have to be the centre of Oxford. I am certain someone will be ready to assist.

There may also be people prepared to give you a lift to Heathrow ... how many of you are there?

Anyway, an 8pm flight + hand luggage should be OK. If there are 4 of you, you could even book a taxi for maybe £60 ?

Thanks for information!
If we solve our working problem and can attend to the tournament, we should be 3 people.
