What is the reasoning behind this one?


"The Club has previously always welcomed non-members to the National without any ticketing requirements.

I have always suggested non members to show up for the BKV to at least see what it is all about. With so many that will only show if the weather is right this move really seems a step in the wrong direction. Is some poor chap turning up from Inverness going to be turned away as not got a ticket‽

The club will always welcome non members to the National BKV.

The event is principally a day for the members, being paid for by the club from membership subscriptions.

We now have a much greater presence on social media and we simply do not want the event to be taken over by non members. It would not be fair on the fee paying members.

We have widely advertised that non members will need a ticket this year which they can obtain at no cost.

I believe some tickets are still available.

It says 'sold out' now, a real shame (I didn't realise it was limited). My lad and I planned to go but it'd now cost £70 for two memberships, never mind petrol to drive a 240 for 5.5 hours there and back. Hmmm...
