NEWSLETTER - 23rd May 2001

The site now offers online entry and coach booking. The list of teams entered is up to date. Those booked on coaches will be listed shortly on the Coach Bookings pages. The pages for Lifts to the Event and Partners Needed are now working and easy to use. The LAMM shop allows you to buy maps and videos from previous events. ONLINE SHOP
We now have an arrangement with the online retailer to allow you an 8% discount for any goods purchased.  See the link at the top right hand side of the LAMM website

On your entry forms you have indicated that about 80 of you would like bunkhouse accommodation for £12 per person – breakfast not included.  We only have space for about 40 people and places will be allocated on a first come, first served basis.  To be on the safe side it is best to come to the event equipped to camp at the Event Centre if all the accommodation is taken.  To take advantage of the accommodation you must both come to the Information Desk at registration together to request and pay for accommodation.  There will be a walk of approx. 1KM from where you park your car, so you’ll need to be able to carry all your kit in a rucksack.

Most of the best price flights to Glasgow and Inverness airports are now taken.  There is another option worth considering which we didn’t recommend earlier is a Ryanair flight from London Stansted to Glasgow.  See  The only problem is that Glasgow Central is 45 minutes by train from Prestwick.

As of 23rd May there are flights departing Stansted -> Prestwick all day on Friday 15th June for around £19.50. but to obtain this price you must return at 17.25 from Glasgow Prestwick on Sunday 17th for £19.50.  Good prices but to make this work you would need to hire a car from the airport and leave the Event Centre on Sunday for the airport by 14.00.

You can hire a car at Prestwick airport from Avis 01292 477218, Hertz 01292 511281, Europcar 01292 678198 or National 01292 671222.  It should be possible to hire a small car for around £55 for the weekend.  If you want to arrange to share car hire from Prestwick, you could advertise on the “Lifts to the Event” section of the LAMM website.

Alternatively use the outward flights FR405 or FR419 at around lunchtime on the Friday for £49.50 and return on the FR418 on Sunday at 20.50 for £49.50.  This way you could link in with our coach at Glasgow Main Airport.  Transport from Prestwick to Glasgow Main Airport as follows:

On a Friday, trains leave Prestwick Airport at 21mins and 5 mins past the hour and arrive at Paisley 34 minutes later.  Buses run from the railway station every 10 minutes till late.  Journey is only about 2 miles so if you are in a rush it shouldn’t be too expensive a taxi ride.  Remember that you must arrive at Glasgow Airport no later than 20.15 for a 20.30 bus to the Event Centre.  Returning on Sunday our coach will drop you at Paisley railway station at about 18.30 after it has called at Glasgow Airport.  Trains run at 11mins and 45mins past the hour to Prestwick Airport and take 34 minutes.
