Updates On Security Concerns – UADC
This email mainly concerns the questions that has been raised in accordance to the current situation In Thailand.
The tournament venue remains unaffected by the on going clashes that has occurred recently. The org com has taken all necessary precautions for your safety. Out of 8 days of debating, first 2 days all the events will be held at the hotel, which is located in the residential area, will remain unaffected by the clashes. The next three days we would be traveling to and fro from Chaleena to Suvarnabhumi campus, thru a single highway, which also does not pass any clash sites. The quarter finals, semi-finals, finals and social events will all be held at the hotel. We would also be providing transportation on 12th and 19th May to book your transportation please book your buses at http://www.uadc2010 .au.edu/transpor t.html
We have two big malls near the hotel, which are safe to visit and are also unaffected by the current riots.
