    not much interest in this weekend

    hi all,200+ views and no one has signed up yet.
    i will need to start thinking about booking the portaloos and speaking to tom regarding food.
    can you give me some feedback.
    is it too expensive?
    too early in the year for commitment?
    does the date clash with something i dont know about?
    let me know your thoughts.
    mike

    i dont really want to cancel the event bisbee,but lets face it ,it dos'nt look very encouraging.
    there is no way i am going to start organising toilets,menu's and camping based on the response the event has has so far.
    to be honest i am a bit disapointed as the january event was really good fun,.
    i am away on holiday next week,
    well i might be, my bloody van broke down on the way home,i was supposed to be towing the caravan to zommerset first thing in the morning
    so i will give this some thought when i have some space in my head.

    You guys made such a good job of organising the Jan weekend it would be rude not to (subject to work commitments)

    This ones Mikes baby, other than leading a trail ride I have no time to donate.

    TBH I think he should pull the plug but at the end of the day it's his decision to make.

    Mikey, I'll be overseas on the dates for this weekend (as I was last year), hence why I'm unable to attend.

    Looking @ the thread re: details, I don't think what's on offer is over priced, and it certainly appears to be a nice venue.

    See you on the 9th August......

    I'm interested but it's still a long way off for me to commit.
    I understand you have to make decisions, but I'd have expected a greater uptake by now.

    I haven't booked in yet but am still planning to lead the road ride. I also have a mate who's interested in attending too.

    I'll add us to the other thread.
