AIRPORT PICKUP

We can only pick people up on Friday due to our driver being called away on a business trip until then. Don't worry, its very easy to get into Barcelona by public transportation. Read on for directions if you are coming early.

FRIDAY PICKUP Times: There will be airport pickups at 11:30, 12:30, 13:30 and 14:30. Rue and Nathalie will be picked up at 22:15.

The following people will be picked up:

Patrick, Sofia, Ze Luis, Koen, Rachel, Fred, Markus, Tim, Gunter, Pablo, Michael.

Amanda and Rio need to tell us when they arrive if they want to be picked up.

If anybody else wants to get picked up please send your Arrival Time, Airline, and Flight no. and you will get picked up.

Everybody will arrive at terminal A so just exit the terminal and wait on the sidewalk. Wait at the corner of the building near the enclosed bridge that crosses over to the train station. Look for a person holding a Frisbee who shows up in a car.

HOTEL ON THURSDAY NIGHT

This is not included in the price of the tournament!

Several people are coming in earlier then Friday and need a place to stay. We suggest staying in Barcelona rather then the beach hotels that we have booked for the tournament since we'll be going out on Thursday night in Barcelona and it is both cheaper and better for tourism. Here are some hostels and prices so please make your reservations with them.there are too many people for us to do it.

We recommend Gracia because it is near where a lot of us live, some players are already staying in this area, and it is central but not as touristy as Las Ramblas.

If dialing from outside of Spain, you must dial a 34 first.

GETTING INTO BARCELONA FROM THE AIRPORT

Get a map from Airport information!

There is a bus and a train that goes from the airport to Plaza de Catalunya in the center of Barcelona. You can take either one. The bus picks you up directly outside of the airport terminals and drops you off in front of the department store "El Corte Ingles". There is an enclosed bridge that accesses the train station which you will see when you exit the airport terminals. The train runs every 30 minutes (:13 and :43) and the last one is at 22:13. The bus runs every 15 minutes but takes a little longer. I'm not sure when the last one is. You can take either one and is dependent solely on preference.

From Plaza de Catalunya you can get the Green line metro to any of the locations above.


THURSDAY NIGHT PARTYING

We will meet in Plaza Reial off of "Las Ramblas" at the outdoor tables of "GLACIAR". Meet at 10:30 p.m. As you enter the plaza from "Las Ramblas", it is in the bottom left corner. We'll have a few beers here and then move on. We'll likely be there for at least 1 hour.

Metro stop: Green Line, Liceu (just after Plaza de Catalunya)

Exit the metro and walk down hill towards Plaza Reial. You will see "Calle Ferran" on your left, the next left brings you into Plaza Reial.

If you are late, the next stop will likely be SideCar which is also in Plaza Reial. Look for us there.

 

WHAT TO DO ON FRIDAY

 

Directions to get to Marfina are on the web. If anybody can not access this, please write to us and we will forward them to you. I think that s all for now. Sorry that this is so long
