Seemed quite fair to me and thats when I got our tickets.
Whilst £50 or £80 may be reasonable if you are camping for the week, what about those people who cannot stand camping or want to/are only attend for one day? For those people £80 is a rip off, pure and simple.
Chris whilst you have other family members able to take advantage of the additional family members discount (which brings the total price down to a reasonable amount) I cannot think of many people in your situation, I certainly couldn't get any of my family to go to this even if I paid them £100 each!
How many people take more than one car to a show, what's that all about?
Don't even get me started on holding at the same time as the Olympics, comments on the CCC forum complimenting the organisers on getting a "good discount" for holding it then begger belief, even my dog could have negotiated that deal. The showground owners must be rubbing their hands with glee and never have thought that would be able to sell those dates even a £1 for the week. How short sighted are the organisers on that issue?
Mike's earlier comment really does sum this farce up for me, the organiser's clearly believe that everyone else would/can go for the whole week and enjoys camping
personally I would sooner stick pins in my eyes than suffer that barbaric practice.

One of several reasons why I recently cancelled my membership of the CCC.
