LATP 2019 - WHICH BANK HOLIDAY WEEKEND?
« on: May 09, 2018, 09:57:46 am »
It has been suggested that we change the date of LATP from 2019 onwards

Please can you comment re. what you'd prefer ...

1)  Change it to the Bank Holiday weekend at the end of May

2)  Keep it on the August Bank Holiday weekend


If you are in the LATP Facebook group - there is a poll there -  https://www.facebook.com/groups/LeafersAtTPit/


You only have a couple of weeks if you want to comment because we need to book the 2019 dates soon!

I am ambidextrous on the matter.

I can work around either.
All the right bits, but not necessarily in the right order.

Since LATP now does not run officially on the Bank Holiday Monday, why does the event even have to coincide with either bank holiday?  Just asking.  Any Sat/Sunday would be viable id Monday is now written out of the event.

The decision was made to have it on Sat and Sun only because many people, understandably, pack up and leave early(ish) on the Monday

Therefore, if it was held on an ordinary weekend (and how would we choose which weekend!!), it's likely that people would pack up and leave early on the Sunday.

Having camping available Fri, Sat and Sun nights means people can show their vehicles and socialise etc for 2 full days then leave whenever they want on the Monday

Hope that explains our thinking  :D

If it is to be a BH week-end then August.

It is something to look forward to for longer,  The weather might just be better,  The darker evenings better suit a good chin wag around the fire pit,

I'd be packed up and gone home on a Sunday, ready for work on a Monday. But as it's a Bank Holiday, I'm off on a Monday.

Mike, I like your point about the fire.
Frenchie, it's good to chill on the Monday and pack up at leisure.

Correct. I like to chill for a bit also and then get on to the task of packing away and driving home.

August Bank Holiday is definitely the most popular - therefore LATP will stay on that weekend
