Update 20/10/16
Event 9 THE GRAVITY OF CONTAINMENT is obviously different in both the location and style of the site most people will be used to, so I have listed a bit of information below to help your booking decision.

Timings
The event will last one day only
Time in will be 10am and the event will finish time out around 8pm.
The site will open for the players to arrive from 9am and leave by 9-10pm
This site will offer no accommodation so if its not within easy travelling for day trip you will need to arrange your own accommodation nearby or share with friends / other players

Location
The Grange Live Gaming - Bravo One site in right in the centre of Birmingham
93-99 Holloway Head, B1 1QP Birmingham, United Kingdom
Parking is approximately £ 4 for a full day, you should not have parking problems
The site is also only 3 minutes walk from Birmingham New Street station

Other logistics
Food, no cooking facilities exist on site, so you will need to bring cold foods/snack, although we may do a food order from a local cafe which offers very good deals I'm told.

Why use the site
The Bravo One site is set in a multi storey building with each floor themed, including one level aimed at Larping I don't want to reveal too much as it will be more fun for you to find out in game.
The site primary purposes is airsoft combat but the site is run by larpers so they know what makes for a interesting layout that will hopefully allows us to create a unique Dark Colony event, that if all goes well may well be used again sometime.

The event will continue the typical nature of Dark Colony events and include combat, problems, puzzles, encounters, diplomacy etc.

We will obviously give you more information nearer the event but if you have any questions that need answering to help you decide on attending or not please ask.
