Its the lakeside Stadium in Doncaster, google should produce a map.

The postcode for the shopping centre next to it is DN4 5JH.

hope that helps, but from memory i think there were stadium signs to follow anyway when you get into doncaster

God my geography of this country sucks. I just looked up Doncaster on Multimap thinking, "maybe I'll see about heading up to meet up with all of you as well."

Maybe not, it's like a 6 hour drive from me. I'm in Rochester in Kent and for some reason I had it in my head that Doncaster would be a little north of London. Somewhere around Milton Keynes.

Oh well. Have fun at the meet.

  it should be a great day for everyone, thers lots of hills and space for bocking all around the stadium area, then the inside the stadium for the walk pass or jump or flip etc, look farward to meeting you all, more details to come over the next few days.

A bit of an update for you guys....

Anyone coming to Doncaster (or those getting the coach to bradford) will need to do so on thursday. The earlier you are there the better. Anyone after 3pm is really pushing for time.

We have a Sports hall at the Doncaster college where we can stay overnight (you'll need sleeping bag, pillow, toothbrush etc). This place has far better facilities than bradford gym as it has proper showers and toilets for us and is also close to the stadium.

Sky sports are doing a little feature on the bockers which means any one of us could be pulled aside at random and asked to say a few words on camera. I need to speak to all of those who are going about this on the day.

Also the stadium is expected to be a sell-out which means we're gonna have close to 15,000 people there! Again, I'd like to make sure we have some sort of organisation while we do the lap of honour. Previous times its been a random free for all but the more organised we can make it look, the better it looks for us and the sport.

People attending this event will also hear the initial planning details of the forthcoming (first ever) POWERBOCKING OLYMPICS which is going to take place at Doncaster Stadium later this year.


For those who I dont know personally please make sure you have my number as I dont want anyone getting lost.

Those going by car, it's Junction 3 on the M18 (North on the M1 those of you coming from the south) and it is then signposted. There are security greeters at the gates who will let you in and then I'll be there waving my knickers in the air.

I should be there by 12 or maybe even earlier (with the welsh posse!).

Hi Guys, the reason iv asked peeps to get ther early is so you can have a bockaround, and reherse the lapp, if ther are one or two that can't make it early please get intouch with me or Uncle Matt, id rather you came along, the walk past will be around 7.00 pm ish, but i realy need everyone well before that, but like i said if its just a few coming late lets just get you in im sure you don't want to mis it and il do everything i can to help out, hope you can make it, and please do get intouch, chears Stevie, Happy Easter, from all of us.
