Yes there is. Much like a nightclub cloakroom where you stand in a big queue and eventually hand over your coat in return for a ticket. Then you do the reverse when it's time to leave. I have a seat so will be using the space under it.
Also, make sure you have a stack of change for the toilets - you have to pay to use them @ 20 cents a pop if I remember rightly.

Paying for the bogs? weird... thanks for the tip off.

More importantly local crooner Garry Hagger will be singing. I saw him play this "gig" a couple of years ago...what a legend!

See you all there, this is an absolutely fantastic cycle meeting and I would certainly bet on any first timers going back again. The atmosphere is fantastic

Saw him a couple to years ago too, and Eddy Wally. Looks like we are spared the singing on Saturday with the womens omnium taking up the slack time.

This will probably be my 6th time, always look forward to it. If you see someone wearing a faded version of this, say hello.

Detailed schedules for each day are now online, and it looks as if their is no ladies competing? If i understand it correctly their is juniors (Chris Lathem and Samuel Lowe from GB) for the first 1hr15 then its the Mens competition with presentation gaps inbetween?

The women's omnium is still shown on the programme for Saturday. The Live section only shows the day to day regular stuff, not the 'specials' (like the Gilbert/Meersman pursuit too).
