    As I don't have my MAP anymore the only meet I'm definitely up for is Blackpool. However I can always join you guys for a drink at the South parks =)

    Hi Dan

    Quick question: What do you do on the 'Closed Season Weekender' given the park is shut?

    Please take this as a serious question - and not a 'dig' - but is 2 nights "overkill" given the limited second-gate offering at Alton over Winter.

    (Unless you plan on drinking for 3 days :p )

    On our closed season weekend we will be:
    • Visiting the water park
    • Having a round of golf
    • Having a wander, often this includes lunch at a pub in the village
    • Investigating a visit to a local brewery
    • Dining in the resort restaurants and drinking in the bars.
    Obviously, it's only the Saturday to fill, really - as we don't arrive until late afternoon Friday and typically we part ways late morning on Sunday.

    :)

    Yes I imagine we will be drinking for 3 days....

    Towers Street has carefully cultivated a well structured reputation and it requires commitment to ensure the standards set are maintained.

    Sadly won’t be at the opening meet as I have a stag do that day. I may turn up extremely hung over on the Sunday as it’s the last day of my MAP being valid, but it’ll be touch and go

    We've made a slight tweak to the Official Meet calendar for this year. As fireworks is moving to the 8th, 9th and 10th we've also moved our official meet to all three days.

    Naturally we know not everyone may make it for all three days, in fact many will only come down from Friday evening, but we thought we'd make it a three day meet since we've waited so damn long for them to return!

    Due to the date change, there's a new RSVP option up on the page.
