If we had the biggest Silver Tiller turnout of the year, how come so many people didn't come to the after party? It was the same format as the previous 2 years, both of which sold out... No local accomodation? tickets too expensive? school hoidays? credit cruch? answers on a postcard please.

quick bump.

If anyone does have any feedback it would be most welcome. We have been asked to host the inlands next year and want to do all we can to maximise turnout!

By the time you look at two tickets, entry to the open, a bed for the night, taxi to and from the club, drinks and petrol, I worked it out to be costing about £250 to come.

Since I was at work anyway it was a no brainer, but had I not been I still could not have justified that amount when money is so tight at the moment. I am sure we are not the only people in that position right now.

I was nothing personal or against Blithfield where we love to sail. I am sure you guys did a super job.

Personaly Credit crunch, mainly why i haven`t completed the Midland series this year, Hopefully next year will be better.

We are going to try and do a bit more again next year. This year started well but we had to tighten our belts a bit too.

If you're hosting the inlands, onsite camping and a vintage section please and we'll hope to come up to re-stock the freezer with oatcakes!

Onsite camping in cars, vans, tents and the clubhouse floor was available for the Silver Tiller Dinner event and several people made use of this option, it certainly kept the cost down, no B&B or Hotel and no Taxi fare either.
No doubt it will be available for the Inlands in 2012 as it was the last time the club hosted the Inlands.

There's a number of things we can look into but we can't unfortunately reduce the cost of travel, or build a local B&B!!

There's no reason why we wouldn't get use of the field for camping, and there are a few ideas being talked about i just wondered if anyone else had any suggestions.
