printing</H3> <P>The "Green Book"&nbsp;(A Coventry Way, A 40 mile circular Walk, 18 Maps and Directions) has now been updated.&nbsp; It was sent for printing on 1-Mar-2011.</P> <P>Paper copies should be posted to registered participants for ACW Challenge 2011 in good time.&nbsp; Plentiful supplies should also be available to purchase from the Coventry Tourist Information Centre (within the tower of St Michael's cathedral ruins).&nbsp; We will be considering if other outlets should now be invited to hold stocks.</P> <H3>Green Book available for download</H3> <P>With the OS (Ordnance Survey) rules changed, we can now offer a download service for files covering the Green Book.&nbsp; </P> <P>See <A href="40-Mile-Walk_Downloads.html">http://www.acoventryway.org.uk/40-Mile-Walk_Downloads.html</A> for details.&nbsp; Note the "Copyright Statement"&nbsp;sections. </P> <P>Those preparing for ACW Challenge 2011 may care to download some maps and directions to get themselves familiar with the route before their Green Book arrived.&nbsp; If you are going out to check some of the route on the ground, print a copy of the relevant sheets and take them with you.</P> <H3>Bing ACW LARGE Scale Maps updated</H3> <P>The Bing based "ACW LARGE Scale Maps" have been updated with all aspects updated in the Green Book.&nbsp; </P> <P>Visit <A href="ACW_Large-scale-maps.html">http://www.acoventryway.org.uk/ACW_Large-scale-maps.html</A> to see updated outline, and use the maps to zoom in (etc.) and explore detail of any changes - almost as good as doing a trial visit!&nbsp; Better still study the map, then visit, then let me know what you found (especially if&nbsp;the maps need updating).<BR>&nbsp; </P> <H3>Significant Changes since Mar-2010</H3> <P>Many of you will be aware of changes through the Challenge 2011 pages, or from the paper Feb-2011 Newsletter, or via the grapevine!&nbsp; For those who missed some, the key points are:</P> <H4>a.&nbsp; Start &amp; Finish</H4> <P>For a start, the event will be operating out of the marquee at the Queen's Head in Meriden - thanks to Caroline and Lawrence for welcoming us back.&nbsp; In the early years, registration, start and finish were located outside the front of the pub.</P> <H4>b.&nbsp; Bubbenhall Checkpoint</H4> <P>This year the Bubbenhall checkpoint will be in the car park of the Malt Shovel pub.</P> <H4>c.&nbsp; Wolston Checkpoint</H4> <P>At Wolston the checkpoint has also been moved - to the Community Centre, in the sports field and the first building you pass approaching the village.</P> <H4>d.&nbsp; Other Changes</H4> <P>Other changes are mostly the usual "improvements" such as more stiles replaced by kissing gates, better waymarking, improved and clearer direction notes and similar.&nbsp; Other more subtle changes will be noted by the observant, such as the old oak tree we used to pass just after leaving Kenilworth golf course is no longer on the ground, and has ben removed from Map4 of the Green Book - but you can still see it on the Bing "ACW LARGE Scale Maps"!<BR></P>
