Wedding Present

I never give cash, vouchers yes or I have done a couple of payments to Trailfinders for honeymoons.  asking for cash I think is far too clinical but maybe thatis just me.

i am just doing a note to go in with my wedding invites saying no gifts as we do not need anything and quite a few are travelling a fair distance. Now if somebody put that in an invite I abide by it but I have already ahd a couple of people say they will be giving a gift and what do we want ....

I tend to work on £50 for a whole day wedding and £25 for evening only invites but it has been more for a very good friend (and less for somebody I hardly knew, could not work out why I was invited unless it was for donation purposes).  But it entirely depends on how much you can afford.  I am sure the couple would hate to think that you're giving more than you can afford.

Can't decide if I am going to enter next year or not.  I loved the race and the setting but its an expensive weekend for me as its not daytripable.  If I knew I would have a job I'd go for it .....

Tesco used to be their main sponsor and certainly covered some of the organisation costs but I don't think they are so involved now.

i wouldn't waste time contacting them, they will not bother with a proper reply.  I emailed them about some serious H&S issues I saw on one R4L several years ago and I got a reply basically saying it was a charity event and nobody expected anything much from it and everyone was a volunteer and here was where to donate more money if I wanted to ......

its had its day ... they haven't taken the chance to evolve it in anyway .... time for a rethink.

I'm Green B and I probably put down about an hour or so as estimated finish time.  still, its the same course for everyone, we just don't have to be out of the loo queue quite so sharpish
