    I am delighted t be able to announce that we have secured an exceptional venue for the 2009 British Discus Show.:D

    We are going to the races!!:bandana:

    The venue is Haydock Park Racecourse. Like many Racecourses they have high quality conference and event facilities. We have secured some 640 square metres of space for the show which is over three times as much as the 2008 show!

    The dates for the show cover the weekend of the 28th and 29th November 2009.

    There are a number of good hotels within 10 minutes drive, some within a few minutes walk. Like last year we will be organising a show dinner, more details to follow. We will also arrange a more competitive rate at a chosen hotel.

    Haydock Park is just 1 mile from junction 23 of the M6 motorway and is an ideal choice being situated near to the middle of the UK. Manchester International Airport is only 30 minutes away. There is masses of free car parking and 24 hour security with the conference buildings also having full intruder alarm systems.

    Here is a link to their site showing some photographs of the areas we will be taking. These are shown in the first 6 photos. http://www.haydock-park.co.uk/professionals/professional-photo-gallery?thumbs=16&page=1

    I have some video and photgraphs that I shall upload in due course.

    Enjoy!
