    Default So, do we go ahead, or try for late in season?

    Numbers down on previous years, which mean marquee hire etc become uneconomic. Do we go ahead with scaled down event? or try for later in year with more organisation and publicity. I've been preoccupied with other things this year, and haven't given it the attention it needed, and advance publicity.

    What am I missing here, Brendan? Is it in danger?
    The nicest thing about not planning is that failure comes as a complete surprise, and is not preceded by a period of worry and doubt.

    With the numbers we currently have, lower than in previous years, the finances don't stack up well. Fixed overheads like marquee hire mean we have to spread cost over a decent number of people to make it work

    Brendan,

    Are the numbers much lower? I for 1 would not mind paying more for such a good event, or maybe we all have a ring round and drum up more attendees...

    At the moment, and running out of time, quite a bit lower. Certainly not enough to make the previous format viable

    Most come for the social aspect of the Sat evening though, not the entire weekend, which is something maybe we need to publicise more?

    Weather has been poor at the event in the past two years, so maybe a June or July event would be better subscribed. Could even, maybe, if we're lucky have a BBQ too!

    I suppose that the real question is. How many do you need to make the event a Goer?

    I am surprised that you haven't got a better response. I have never found the weather off putting. Is everybody turning into whimps! [img]/forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]
