    The only meet I can guarantee to be there is South meet at Paultons since I'm still debating to renew my MAP. However I do renew it, I shall be at opening (hopefully both days!), South at Thorpe, and maybe the Roller coaster restaurant and Blackpool Pleasure Beach as well. I'd say Fireworks, but I say that every year and I never go :p

    I should be going to most of these except from the RC restaurant meet as I'll wait for them to iron out all the teething problems

    Looks like you won't be seeing much of me and Kelpie then. Hils can't get any time off over the summer, and I will probably be working myself. :(
    Oh, and I think South Meet might be a bit light on members, that's the day we are all doing The Crystal maze. ;)

    No weathervane? Rugeley is a bit out of the way in terms of travel for me sadly. Instead of a 1 hour train to Stoke it's a 3 hour trip down to Birmingham and back up to Rugeley Town. I should be there for either the opening meet or one in May for the day though :)

    I'll be there for the Blackpool one as well.

    Weathervane changed their adults policy meaning that it's unsuitable for TSTers I believe.

    Everything that was good about the Vane has been sucked dry by Best Western.

    We haven't used the Weathervane for some years now.

    Rugeley is used once or twice a year as it is scampering distance to Wetherspoons.

    Also, Rugeley Trent Valley station is on the west coast main line with direct trains from Stoke and Crewe.

    I Just checked and Trent Valley shaves off an hour and a half the journey time despite the stations being close together. Trent Valley indeed changes at Stoke which is much better, thanks.

    I was going to say I'll book it all this month but they want £150 for 2 nights, plus trains, park entry & spends I'm talking about £300 which is a bit much for a day at Alton. I will either still come down for the day or see you all for Blackpool. :)
