Cheers for this folks. Fingers crossed MOS doesn't clash with the small matter of me getting married... and no, it's not to Jart.

I really hope you can make at least one meet.

 

Because we are certainly lacking bag holders in this forum!

Guildford is normally a go-er.

And will probably do Thorpe opening at least ;)

Will we be allowed at opening? Don't want to bugger up Stealth right from the start ;)

Better start drinking and riding Stealth now guys then!

 

I will know you've been successful when I hear Stealth has undergone excessive downtime.

Are the port aventura dates likely to change?

 

Yep that's just a rough estimate so far. We are planning to have a vote open for dates soon :)

Any chance of a vote for Thorpe Park Opening Meet? Train tickets are cheaper up to 12 weeks in advance also gives people time to book time off work Also as many of you are aware down south Southern are constantly striking,

We do plan on setting up the topic/votes for the open meet very soon, we haven't forgotten about it and we're trying our best to be considerate without chucking loads of information at you. :)

I tend to avoid that rust bucket company as they make DBGT look highly reliable.

 

South West wipe the floor with them until they combust!

I have already booked holiday for opening weekend. We can only have a limited number of people on holiday at the same time and I do also work weekends so I wanted to get in while I could. Obviously if the meet is a different weekend I would try to get the time off but its subject to notice at work and not having to many others off at the same time.  I agree on average train tickets do come out 12 weeks in advance for advance fares  (Especially for long distance visitors) and the savings are huge. However these tickets are now on sale for opening weekend and are likely to sell out. However I wont buy any train tickets until the meet date is confirmed. Yes Sothern's dispute with the RMT and ASLEF sadly seems no closer to ending. Thankfully I use GWR and SWT to get to Staines and they are not on strike at present

Fair enough on these 12 week train tickets and hopefully these new meet organisers will be able to plan in advance. 

 

But give some credit for the first part of the year. They've only been doing it for 2 weeks, set up two meets already, given a rough plan and also have their own lives to attend too whilst picking up the unfinished leftovers

Own lives should not stand in the way of meet organising, they knew the rules when they signed up ;)

Yes definitely. I appreciate that things take time to put in place when their is a change of meet organisers etc.

 

Also I can guess that their is more involved in organising meets than people realise to.

Could we do Drayton with the Towers weekender this year? It's been 2 years since we last did it and with Towers going downhill fast it might be preferred? :)

If Towers Fireworks is a definite, could I perhaps even be daring enough to suggest the possibility of replacing the Towers weekender altogether?  

 

Drayton is meant to maybe get a big-ish thing in 2018, so might be worth missing it this year.  And there's loads of other places that could be done!

Let's just all go back to Europa Park!

 

I need more absinthe to get me immersed to that place and re-rides on Wodan.

 

I'm no meet organiser so I don't mind what happens, we could do Brighton Pier for all I know.
