according to the official site it appears to be all ticket!

glad i found that one out before i drove down on friday for the weekend....

it seems we have an allocation of 500!

anyone think i might be short of tickets (i need 4!) ????

 

ps ... why all ticket?????

its a small ground, only holds about 6500 full. mind you dont think we will take that many, somebody is panicking.

all a bit tongue in cheek!

i have a mate who lives down there so mrs TTD and i always make it a weekend away .....

 

was a great trip last year, mainly cause of the weather! can't see it be so good this year!!!

 

just wondering why it would be all ticket????

All to do with parking restrictions and stuff.... some roads in the area are even blocked of for people simply walking to the ground and everyone thought we had it bad.

 

Your ticket includes return bus tickets into town or park and ride, by making it all ticket it makes sure that everyone follows the proceedures they have to have in place to get to the ground. The council monitors the way people travel to the ground and if they are found to have not followed the councils instructions the club get fined.

 

Always advance tickets for home/away fans because of above

That's exactly why it's all-ticket. It's fine if you're staying down there. You can spend time in Brighton before the game and travel in by train or bus. Then you have to follow the designated route to the athletics stadium which pretends to be a football ground.

 

If you drive and get there early enough to spend a few hours socialising before the game, you'll find that the park and ride area doesn't open before 12.30pm. By the time it is open and you've travelled to the stadium by bus, there is insufficient time to go anywhere apart from the Sportsman pub behind the North Stand at the stadium. After the game you have to walk down to the main road and queue until the bus takes you back to the car park. It's a more inconvenient system than the one at Swansea.

 

This time, as Mrs. S. and I are not staying over, we can't be arsed to go through all that, so we're missing the game.

There are four of us going down for Maddog's birthday weekend :).

 

Should be a good shout, we are staying Friday and Saturday so if you see us, say hi!

 

Anyone else going down?

they had announcements for it on sat'day at the yeovil game!

 

The Boundary blues trip has been cancelled because of lack of interest - shame really!

 

Last season it booked up really quickly and we had loads of people ask if we were doing the trip again this year. We have made announcements for the last few home games but at the end of Saturdays game, only 10 people were booked on it and 3 of those were Boundary Blues staff. We cannot afford to run the trips at a massive loss as each trip has to pay for itself.

 

We were only charging £25 for members and parents, which was coach ticket and match ticket. You go straight to the ground, no messing with the park and ride etc. Unfortunately, it seems people just weren't interested!

I'll be there! Also staying Fri/Sat. (That reminds me - best get a hotel booked).

The only suprise is that she didn't delegate the travel arrangements to me.

 

What, so we would miss the train then get a taxi to try and catch up with it. Realise that its a futile attempt and get on the next train so we can get fined ££££'s for not having the correct ticket?

 

Sounds like you know what you are doing.

 

How can i get to Port Vale?
