So the plans for this years furball run are up here: forum.ukfur.org/index.php  
And for those who can't be bothered/won't look at UKfur, here's all the info you need:

PLEASE BE AWARE YOU NEED EARLY ARRIVAL AND LATE DEPARTURE OPTIONS CONFIRMED!

The skeleton plan for this year is as follows: (Hotel and service stops yet to be confirmed, ferry crossing will not change and as such can be booked immediately!)

LEG 1 - Monday 30th August

This is gonna be an early one guys and I'll explain why.

Meeting from 10:00am at our usual services (Maidstone), we shall be departing here by 11:15 at the latest. We will need to be at the ferry terminal in Dover for check in at approx 12:30 to take the 'Pride Of Canterbury' Ferry which leaves at 13:00. This crossing booked via www.poferries.com/tourist/bookJourney.html will cost you £40 on the outward journey if booked ASAP (P&O Special deal, thats £40 per car flate rate!)

The ferry arrives in Calais at 15:30. We will then drive to our Hotel which with either be Eindhoven or Antwerpen (I have a certain riverdog looking into this for us and details of the hotel will be with you by late May).

LEG 2 - Tuesday 31st August

Leaving our hotel, we then drive through to Magdeburg with a few service stops. This will let us arrive on the Early arrival day!
