Haha. Think it also has a sticker of a hamster on that I got on a parcel once!!

I'm assuming the closest station is Bracknell? Or is there another? Does anyone know how long a bus from the station would take, or would a cab be better? Don't want to be late!!

Having a look at the map for the show, Bracknell station does seem to be the right station. The show is in Bracknell leisure centre I think and their website lists 4 bus routes that go there. I don't know which ones link to the station. It is not that far away.
I will look for more detail.

There's not a lot of room in the hamster section, and it's a busy large hall so I'd suggest taking care with getting pet class hamsters out of their carriers before/after judging. It may be better to leave them in their carriers as I'd hate for any to get lost.

I didn't do very well but if you click on the link in Vectis's first post in this tread (scroll down to the bottom of the information about the show to find it) it will take you to the Bracknell leisure centre website. It gives their phone number. A quick call to them will get you the most accurate local information I expect.

I've found a map of the bus routes, and all go through the bus station which looks to be near the train station and three go past the leisure centre from there

Pinkneon I have had a look at the bus map posted by Vectis and at the Leisure centre website and I believe that the 3 buses you can use are the 171, 172 and 194. I just don't know which direction you need though! At the railway station perhaps they can tell you if some of those bus numbers stop at the station and go on to the leisure centre.

Jasper will be going in the main class (cos it might be the only show I can take him to where he might have a chance at winning).

I really hope I get to meet the handsome Sweep. He's very cute.

I expect Larry -Jasper will be in the main show. I wonder if his breeder will recognise him during the judging!

Have to think how HC'ers can identify each other??!!
I want to meet Sweep as well lol.

Yes Larry-Jasper has been entered in the main show. I do wonder if Sue from TuftyFluff will recognise him as well as she's judging him. Although, Sue did tell me she was judging one of Jasper's siblings (who she'd given to the new owner that day), and didn't recognise him/her. The hamster ended up being 2nd (don't know what class) lol.

I think he's the first hamster to be called Larry-Jasper and she did have to send me his pedigree with his name on so you never know.

We could all wear labels with our HC names on and saying HC lol.
