So do the first 8 not have to apply individually? :)

Good question.

We either give the 8 free tickets out to the first 8 people to respond when I post this in the members' section, or have a draw nearer the time (the actual deadline for booking is only a week or two before the show). Could be an opportunity there for a non-member reading this to join the club quickly and then get extra value for money for their membership :)
What does everybody think?

We need to have a cut off date for members to request a ticket and then have a draw. It's the only fair way for all members. Obviously we need to do it in good time to enable those who are not successful to purchase tickets on line.

Give free tickets to non members who sign up to a 2 year membership. Good way of increasing numbers. Once they are here with a bit of luck they may stay. I'll happily pay for my own ticket if necessary :jerry

Yip, this is a good idea :-)

Hammond's idea is good but limits the prospective audience too much.

I'm happy to pay for my own too :)

Do children under a certain ago not go free?

I am shore that the will be someone on their own in a car so a second ticket to get into the museum will be going spare if not on here one or two off the coupe lot are normally one person per car!

Blue Wristbands for Gaydon

#27 Post by JEASPEKE » Fri Jun 09, 2017 4:34 pm

BTW,

Do the blue wristbands sent out with entry pass get you into the Museum?
If yes, I have received two, so one is spare if anyone needs it.
