It's that time of year again when people who feel the urge to do a Tube Challenge but don't fancy all of the 275 stations on the system, can have a go at the 64 (I think) stations in zone one. So if you are free on Friday May 19th (skive a day off work or college) the organiser, Chris Presswell, is still taking entries.
However, as Chris says "Anybody unable to get the day off from work/school/college/prison is welcome to join us for an evening of drunken antics, geeky chat and tube-related games (TBC)". I'll keep you posted of the post challenge pub location nearer the time.
Look out for a Tubechallenge quiz this Friday where you can win a copy of Tunnel Vision by Keith Lowe (kindly donated by Graham O'Mara, who really is spoiling us). Tunnel Vision is a novel about a guy who takes part in a personal "stag" Tube challenge on the eve of his wedding, with his essential belongings dotted around the network. Fortunately this year's Zone 1 challengers won't have the added pressure of looking for their passport, credit cards, house keys etc - although it would add a certain je ne sais quois to the proceedings!
