    Taking into consideration that the cost to Pontins for the beer will probably covered by the bands anyway ie. chalets and entry fees etc. can we assume that the above figure is PURE PROFIT????

    Is this acceptable?

    One band I play with has certainly chosen not to go to Pontins this year and do Butlins instead.

    Well I wouldn't hesitate to guess that the banding weekend is the biggest profit making weekend pontins has in the entire year!

    It always makes me giggle when the pontins representative says at the results 'it is always a great pleasure to welcome the banding fraternity to Pontins each year' I bet!!! ker-ching ;)

    Didn't think you were drinking this year Alex :guiness :guiness :guiness

    So that should be a huge monetary saving for you ?;)
