Apologies to the Dundee organisers for kind of hijacking their thread a little, I hope you don't mind.

For anyone booking the Premier Inn next to the venue or anywhere else in Dundee or anyone who may be booking a Premier Inn stay for future tournaments, please consider helping the Prestwick 2012 congress and the sensory board fund by joining the Greasypalm website and clicking from there through to the Premier Inn website, before booking.

Details of how to join the Greasypalm site and help Prestwick and sensory boards can be found under the Prestwick 2012 thread of the tournament section on this forum.

In addition to helping the two funds you’ll also earn cashback on your stay, as outlined below in the excerpt below, copied from the Greasypalm site.

I don't mind at all but I'm going to claim it back Big Grin . A little more than 12 hours after my first posting of this thread the Travel Inn prices have changed again (perhaps there has been a rush of interest in the congress dates?):

Nearby:
Travel Inn (Monifieth) – Fri - £51, Sat £29 (adjacent to venue)
Travel Inn (Dundee East) – Fri - £29, Sat £54 (2 mins drive from venue)

So one night at Dundee East and one at Monifieth is still a cheap option.

. Yes - £5 for all the venue's facilities for the whole weekend. Can I anticipate an entry =) ?
