    I'm not sure I'm able to make this meet, but I'd far rather do PBB on the Saturday than the Sunday. Closing time on Saturdays during September is 8pm, on Sundays its 5pm - so no night riding :(

    I will be there for both days. As the Merlin attractions will only take a few hours is anyone interested in going swimming at Sand Castle on the Saturday?

    As John said, why are we doing it this way round and cutting down our riding time at PBB?

    Wouldn't mind at Towers, but since I have to pay each time I go to PBB, I want to get my value for money. Can you swap them round please? :)

    Will change the days. Three hours of difference seems crazy.

    I won't be on this meet.

    Considering I'll be possibly meeting up with the Skypers, could we change the date due to Sunday service for many want to go to PB.

    EDIT: Doesn't matter, Astro just posted.

    It has been changed as I had no idea the gulf in hours was so considerable.

    This reminds me actually, need to sort out my 21st.. :p

    Needless to say I'll be at this meet as it involves both my beloved Blackpool and those lovely TSTers.

    I dunno,

    I dislike PBPBPBPBPB...

    It'll probably be a great laugh with you guys, but dunno if I can justify the cost of getting there and paying entrance to a park I don't like...

    Will be the only official meet I won't attend... :(

    I am so excited for this meet! Haven't been to Pleasure Beach since 2008 and have never ridden things such as Wild Mouse and River Caves...also haven't done Merlinpool yet, so all in all should be a fab weekend :D

    I'll be there, looking to book hotel with Alex and our very dear Maggie, assuming he would like to. Simon may be coming but will take a solitary trip to a hill somewhere
