I have to say it is a long time since we have paid less than £100 for a National WITHOUT EHU, so I'm not moaning about being given it included in a package price of £95, all daytime activities are free and its in the Queen's garden, no pleasing some people though is there Wink

Just think how much better value it would be without EHUWink

If I want to go on Friday and attend all the entertainment then I have calculated my cost to be £265 assuming that I want to go to the Broadway Spectatular on Sunday evening rather than the 'Evening with Rebbecca Newman' which would cost another £114.  Well done to the CC PR dept. predicting a sell out for the event as I assume that all profits go back into 'club' funds and so benefit all members.

the Evening with Rebecca Newman is not a Club event and includes a meal too doesn't it ? Can't blame the CC for the expense of that, and there is no way we would do every nights entertainment, personally I think that is a bit selfish as there is not room for everyone to do that (if there was there would be no need to put on so many nights entertainment, just have one big night out for everyone instead)  As for the ehu, as we are likely to be out for up to two weeks even 6 amps will keep us ticking over as we stagger back to our van to sleep each evening.

Booked & Paid!   Thought it a bit hard to have to pay  now, but I suppose the set up costs are high.

Would be good if CT members confirm that they are coming on here or on the sticky.

Hope you can meet up with some from CT, there was provision for a get together last year but It didn't work out. We recognised some fellow ralliers which was nice. My best wishes to Alison, sorry to hear your news (in another thread,) your views and help on the National and other rallies have helped us join in and enjoy CC events. x

Sorry TF, I was posting to you and also to Alison (Firedragon) at the same time. Reading back it does sound  a bit confusing.

Write your comments here...Alison - Don't understand about it being selfish to attend all the entertainment laid on.  If it is just to cope with numbers how do we know which one needs the support ?

Take no notice of me Bill, if you want to do all the entertainment you go for it, as you say it works out a bit expensive but it is only money and I doubt many would do it anyway. Better they are fully booked to cover the cost. We rarely get to do any of the evenings as we work at the National but this year I am hoping I can wangle a night off to do the Adele evening.

Thanks Brue for the good wishes, we have to wait till the beginning of December now for results and then we hope to confirm our place at Sandringham, fingers crossed !

Write your comments here...Well done, TF. Ours is booked and paid too. It will be well worth it, I'm sure.
