any reason the entry date is march 31st and not sooner?
here is my thaughts on Moving it.
I know i want to attend "now". Thus, i am prepared to pay up today to get my place.
once I have my place as an individual, I know i have to book the days needed to attend, can start looking for cheap flights early and book the hotel etc..
Then start saving for beer money. given enough time to save, may even have enough to buy andy a pint
For me, as we know the dates, entries should be open and those that want to go will pay up. the rest can make their minds up whenever and take the chance on places being left?
If someone does not find out until April if they can go or not, by then cheap flights will be gone, the hotels could be booked up etc?
