Our Coach Manager, Julia Allison will try to ensure that connections
are kept with late-running trains, coaches and flights, so long
as we are made aware that people are arriving on them. In case of
emergency, Julia's mobile number is 07752 819793.
FROM GLASGOW FRIDAY 8th JUNE
Do not confuse Glasgow Airport with Prestwick
Airport, which is 1 hour to the SW of Glasgow. If you do fly to
Prestwick and wish to use our transport you will need to catch a
train into the centre of Glasgow. There will be one coach from Glasgow.
Please don't make bookings on trains/buses that get to Glasgow later
than 19:00 or planes that get to Glasgow Airport later than
Glasgow Buchanan Bus Station - Coach Departs
at 19:30 for Glasgow Airport
There will be one special coach from Glasgow (journey time 2.5 hours).
If you will be arriving at the airport some hours
before the coach departs, you could take an airport shuttle bus
to Glasgow Bus Station, spend the day in town and then join our
coach at Buchanan Bus Station rather than the airport. The bus station
is situated in Killermont Street near to Glasgow Queen Street Railway
Station and is less than 15 minutes walk from Glasgow Central Railway
Station. Please note that the coach will NOT be calling at
a railway station. The coach will be standing at Tour Stand nr
23, sited at the far end of the bus station opposite the main
building. You should be able to locate Julia Allison, our marshal,
who will be wearing a bright yellow LAMM bib, a few minutes
before the departure time. Also we expect the coach to be marked
with LAMM or Lowe Alpine MM and it is possible that some
information will be provided on the overhead displays. In case of
emergency such as late running transport or if you are on the list
but will not be requiring the transport, please contact Julia Allison,
our marshall on mobile number 07752 819793 to
discuss the options.
Glasgow Airport - Coach Departs at 20:00 for
the Event Centre
Our meeting point will be close to one of the Airport Information
Desks. Look for the desk situated on the Ground Floor near to Domestic
Flight Baggage Reclaim. If you arrive on an International flight,
you will need to proceed to this area after you have reclaimed your
bags. Our marshal will be wearing a bright yellow LAMM bib
and will arrive with the coach from Buchanan Bus Station - so don't
be concerned if the marshal does not appear until a few minutes
before the coach departure time (or later if the coach is delayed).
Our marshal will lead you to where coaches are required to await
SUNDAY 10th JUNE
Our transport will leave the Event Centre at 15:30,
calling at Glasgow Airport, Glasgow Central Railway Station and
finally at Glasgow Buchanan Coach Station. THE PICK UP POINT
ON SUNDAY WILL BE VERY CLOSE TO THE DROP OFF POINT ON FRIDAY.
If you are not there on time you will miss the coach, as
there is no significant margin for delay. If you miss the transport
you will need to try to hitch a lift in a car leaving the venue.
This should not be too difficult. Please
do not book flights leaving Glasgow Airport or coaches/trains leaving
the centre of Glasgow on Sunday earlier than 18:30.
HOT TIP - CARRY YOUR PACKED EVENT SACKS AS HAND
LUGGAGE. A few years ago, Sabena Airline mislaid the hold luggage
of a pair from Holland. They turned up at the event without any
kit and were unable to participate - a disaster for them and a lesson
to be learned. Even on domestic flights you should now carry your
passport or some other form of photo identification.
GAS CANISTERS: You cannot carry these canisters
on an aircraft. Please contact Compass Point, Rick
Houghton at firstname.lastname@example.org
or telephone 01253 795597, so that
they can bring the right type of gas canister to the event for you.
MANAGE A COACH: If you live in the Glasgow
area and in return for free transport would be prepared to 'manage'
a coach, please contact email@example.com.
WHAT TO DO IF YOU MISS A COACH
This is not a disaster as long as you REMEMBER TO BRING YOUR
DRIVER'S LICENCE AND A CREDIT CARD! There are a number of car
hire firms situated at Glasgow airport, within a short walk of the
terminal building. Weekend rates are reasonable and you should expect
to pay an all-inclusive price of about £70 per economy
car for 48 hours from Friday evening -> Sunday afternoon.
Check the damage excess when you hire a car. Look out for other
LAMMers in the same predicament so that you can share a car between
