Right now people, I want a discussion... I've just got back from a wonderful weekend at Butlins, and thought I'd start up the ultimate debate - which is better butlins or pontins and why and perhaps more importantly what can one learn from the other to make it even better? I was also wondering, and asked many people the question, why Butlin's was less "tMP" than Pontin's. There was distinctly less coverage, no suggestion's of a trade stand or massed band etc... what are your thoughts? I've got mine, but I want to know yours first. I'm sure there were plenty of tMPers there, I was even reckonised from my old avatar by a few. For my money, I'd like to congratulate the organisers, but my suggestion is that the test pieces are annouced much earlier, so bands can perhaps work on them in the quiet summer months, and not worry so much during the busier christmas/post-christmas-area-run-up periods.
