    Ok so i know this is a long way in advance but my uni is doing a "jailbreak" charity event in november and im well up for competing.

    Teams of between 2 and 4 have 48 hours to get as far away from campus as possible in fancy dress and with no money to spend on travelling. Apparantly last years winners got to tel-aviv in israel! Warwick uni even got to vancouver!

    I have got one or two ideas but just wanted to see if anyone has any advice or tips.

    I dont have a clue how much im allowed to prepare i.e. a mate waiting round the corner with a car but i want to try do it without relying on pre planning.

    anyone done one before?

    should be fun!

    Sounds great, not sure about advice - but it can't help to brush up on your charm and puppy dog eyes!

    1. Call the local media, tell them about this charity event
    2. Meet them at the start, have them film every blag you can.
    3. Get to the local airport in a cab, with the media.
    4. Inform manager of biggest airline you're doing a charity event.
    5. Wave goodbye to the cameras as you board your flight.

    Put charity and cameras infront of any shrewd businessman, and you're sorted.

    not sure but definately would like to find out.

    I guessing trying to blag flights are airports.

    maybe somewhere thats got some spaces and wants a decent bit of PR

    Im looking forward to seeing where i can blag myself too!

    Yup. I've seen it done a dozen times before.

    Boobs are always beneficial. Especially when you are doing fancy dress as some slutty nurse. :yep:

    I know someone who did a charity jail break and managed to blag their way in to the cargo hold of a plane and wound up in Hong Kong.
