The tournament will take place at Oslo Bridge Center located at Lørenveien 68.
Easiest way to get there from downtown Oslo is by subway line 4 to Løren subway station or line 5 to Økern Subway stop, and from either station it’s a short walk. You can find the subway schedule at www.ruter.no .
During the Easter weekend there will be quite a lot of maintenance on both trains and subways in the Oslo area. Make sure to keep this in mind when planning your trip to the venue, and plan some extra time for the journey.
During the tournament there will be free tea and coffee for everyone.
There is a bakery nearby that might be open for lunch on Friday and Saturday, but most probably closed on Sunday. Hard to say with it being Easter. At the venue we also have a fridge at our disposal, for those that want to bring along some lunch food.
For dinner, after the second round on Friday and Saturday, we’ll be ordering pizza. There is also an Indian place (http://www.sanjays.no/) nearby for those that prefer that instead of pizza.
We will try to offer private accommodation to everyone who wants this. If you desire accommodation make sure to note it on the registration page, and we’ll see what we can do.
