Thanks to Blithfield sailing club for a great days sailing and a fabulous Silver Tiller dinner & party!
Martin, I'll take wine with you and thank Blithfield (and Aeolus) for a great day of racing and a cracking dinner/party
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.
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.
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.
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!!
