Seriously?? We'd like to get along to something, but there's no way we're able to sort that out and book it right now! And just because Brownie no. 2 is into a particular sport right now doesn't mean she still will be by the summer next year, so we don't want to have had to commit 16 months in advance! :eek:
Yes you have to apply by 26th April, money taken in May and you'll hear what for in June. As you say far too early.

You may be able to buy some off the resell website there is supposedly going to be next year.

The total of mine came to £400, which I don't think is too bad. I put down one thing (can't remember what it was now) to see on my birthday, but it was £20 for only 45 minutes!!! Got rid of that one pretty sharpish!

We want to go. My fiance's a hockey player and my Mum, Dad and Me play badminton. Would love to see archery too!

Just put our application in..........
Anyone else think the ticket prices are a bit ouchy?? (admitedly we don't have to travel as far as some, so that's not so bad)

I've applied for the diving because of Tom Daly, rowing, all 3 days of the 3 day eventing, and also the opening ceremony, asked for the cheapest for all of them.

I have applied for tickets to the womens football in Cardiff for my Brownies as we could get there on the train from Somerset - not willing to take them to London even thought the road races are free! I have ordered 30, paid a pound per girls age in July 2012 for the Brownies I have now, and made up with adult tickets. If we are lucky enough to be drawn I have worked on the assumption that should the girls I have now not want to go, then I will take the new Brownies that join us over the year. Our total only came to £320, which I thought was very reasonable for a once in a lifetime event!

I've been to the Olympics in Atlanta in America in 1996 it was such a fab experience, I would have liked to have gone to the Olympics in this country but I doubt we will be going this time.
