Must have missed the advert, my mistake.

Missed a trick with Facebook. It was in the magazine and on this forum early enough. Plus ads on Concorde tours well early. TAS failed to get it into their magazine and it only went round their mail list too late.
We had problems with the contact number & didn't have a working email address until late.

20:20 hindsight is depressing :-(

Did the local press advert generate any interest? From recollection it was published at the beginning of this month?

Not trying to pick over the bones of this - just wondering for future reference and other regional events.

Thanks,

Gully

Happy to have bones picked. It's the only way we learn. The local press article didn't generate too much interest but did get some. I thought a couple of weeks ahead would be ideal. The reporter I spoke to reckoned that we should have been in touch 2 months earlier. He was supportive and I reckon we can use him again.
There is another local paper that I didn't manage to hit - I will next time.

The Visitor Park Management are fully supportive of 558 - remember Manchester closed for 30 monutes for the flypast last September - you don't get much more supportive.
It's letting Martin down I don't like doing.

Agreed with the above,it's so disheartening when all your hard work fails at the last minute I know i struggled to get 60 people to attend my Pie Night back in February,better luck next time and don't give up.

I've spoken to Martin and he's still willing to come as long as 558 gets some dosh.
Now the evenings are getting colder to hold it under Concorde would involve a heating charge. They already were writing off gate income and O/T for the guy on the  gate as well as any potential income from other events that we were blocking out.
The restaurant could be used but isn't ideal for several reasons. So realistically April/May is the next opportunity. Anyway let's hang fire for now until we know that the finances are up straight.
Anyone who paid by Paypal will be getting a refund to their Paypal account. A nice balance to spend on EBay stuff :-)

Once again many thanks to all for trying to achieve what would have been a fantastic evening, and better luck next time!
Hope you don't mind, the wife and I have decided to donate our 'dinner money' £60 to the XH558 fund, so your efforts have not been totally in vain.

Good luck to all for the future! Dave.
