      On September 7 we are visiting one of the Europe's most famous and popular capitals - London itself!

      You can expect an activity-and-action-packed Saturday spent together with the fellow Diamonds and Black Members.

      The event will kick off at the renowned Campaign Paintball venue which is easily accessible by train from central London. The exact location and directions can be found here.

      After a quick lunch around noon, we'll be able to do some serious paintball shooting. Has anyone from the forum annoyed you recently or even beaten you at the tables? The time for revenge is coming! :)

      After a good workout "army-style", we'll grab some good food, enjoy a live band appearance and some DJ mixes later in the famous American style restaurant - Roadhouse. In this rocking venue in Covent Garden in the centre of London, you will be treated to a 3-course menu and some free drinks.

      From buffalo wings to crispy baby camembert, we'll sail through the main course (including a few options to choose from for everyone) and we'll indulge in one of the delicious desserts washed down by a Mojito or a cold beer.

      To participate in this event, you need to attain Diamond or Black Member status for at least one day between July 1 and September 1, 2013.

      Bumpy bump!

      A bit more than 1 month to go.. it might be a good plan to focus on grinding in August in order to get a Diamond.

      If you are a July Diamond, you can already sign up!

      Who will I see in Lodon? :rolleyes: :f_biggrin:

      Hey hey,

      anyone who's willing to join us?

      The registration period is open and whoever qualifies is more than welcome to attend the event! :)

      All that needs to be done is dropping me an email (marta.wyrobek@pokerstrategy.com) with:
      - your nickname
      - real name
      - confirmation if you want to attend the paintball part (that would require you to be present on 7th September - Saturday, at around 11am at a meeting point in the center that is yet to be specified).

      The paintball venue is outside the center so it's better if we go as a group.

      Let me know, looking forward to seeing some of you very soon! :)

      I'll be going to the Pokerstrategy VIP Tour in London on Sep 7th. I expect to fly in on Sep 6th and fly back on Sep 8th. Now I don't want to just go in a boring hotel room alone as it's usually much more fun to hang out with other poker players. So if anyone has a couch/mattress I could crash on for 2 nights that would be amazing. I'll be happy to give you free productivity advice in exchange of course smile . Please contact me on skype if you're interested (skyrocketyourproductivity).

      Also please contact me if you're just interested in sharing a hotel there :) .

      Update regarding the meeting point and time on 7th September (Saturday) - Paintball part.

      Paintball part will take place at Campaign Paintball, London (Old Lane, Cobham, Surrey, KT11 1NH).
      See the directions below:



      In order to get there, we will meet at the Waterloo train station (Waterloo Rd, London SE1 8SW) at 10:30am on Saturday. We will meet in front of the main entrance (pic below). I will be wearing a red PokerStrategy.com hoodie, so you should not have problems with spotting me. :)

      Please be on time. In case you cannot make it, please give me a call/send a text to the number that I will send you all in an e-mail.

      The train:
      Departure: 11:09 London Waterloo [WAT] Platform 1
      Arrival: 12:03 Effingham Junction [EFF] Platform 2

      Here you can find the complete schedule in case you cannot make it on time.




      ---

      The paintball part starts at 12:30 with a quick lunch and finishes around 4pm.

      You are free to return to your hotel with us (back to the Waterloo station) or choose another train, depending on your location.

      The dinner part will start at 8pm at Roadhouse located in Covent Garden.

      If you have not booked your accommodation yet, I'd advise to look for something in the area. I'm staying in the Grosvenor House Studios, so if you are around, we can meet before and travel together. :)

      Hope to see you there (and still waiting for more people to come). :f_cool:

      Let me know if there are any questions!

      Hey man


      I was thinking about going to Newcastle first. If not I will definitely be going back to Newcastle afterwards.
