There will be 7 of us in convoy coming down from Yorkshire, aiming to arrive by 7:40 ish but that's going from Google maps time, and then it depends how long the queue is to get in. So I'm guessing there will be quite a few of you on the stand before us, same as last year.
Non-existent customer service at my bank, and people ignoring emails.
People ignoring emails is one that really annoys me. There are companies that actually know what customer service is, like Mountune who responded to my email the other day in a few minutes. And then there are 90% of other companies that seem to have these email addresses which are completely ignored.
As for banks, I think I've only walked into a bank a handful of times in the last 10 years. There aren't that many reasons to go to them direct these days.
Send a message to jamesm182 to see if he has any spare stand passes left (I guess they might all be gone at this stage but worth a try). Also you could ask around the other clubs to see if they have stand passes, but if not you don't have to be on a stand to get involved
I noticed after reading this thread that the banner ads on this site are now from Trust Ford lol. It's as if they're trying to claw back some of their reputation. It would be good if you could change their ads to include some of your opinions on their customer service.
We were on route T last year so it should be the same unless they changed the routes. But that takes us all the way around when we should be going straight to the stand (but then we get to go through that tunnel which was fun).
You'd think it would be easy for them to look at how many stand passes they send out to each club to work out where the bigger clubs need to go, it's hardly rocket science. But I'm sure we'll manage on the day, even if we all have to bunch up and park on the grass.
