Many of which don't bother.
Ther must have been quite a few no-shows at Tawd Vale as well - I am sure they normally have 1A and 1B groups but at the briefing they mentioned that 8 lanes would only have pairs on them.
So that is at least 8 no shows and could have been more???
I understand that sometimes people have to cancel for valid reasons but we should try to avoid the book now and decide whether to go later attitude that may be creeping in. Not sure how you avoid it though - unless you can take payment at time of booking?
