It baffles me that organisers of any event try to put the blame on the public by saying that too many of them turned up and therefore, thats what caused the problem. It's like going to a restaurant and the waiter saying that there is a long wait for the food as they are very busy at the moment! Good management should have plans in place. The weather forcast was pretty good, AROC are a deddicated bunch who always support these events well (all they had to do was to call Duxford and ask how many AROC members attended their last event), first show of the season where punters are desperate to get to see some flying for the first time etc etc. And they had another event on the same day. Good management should be about planning for this. Would they rather 30% stayed at home? good for traffic, bad for their bank balance.
Looking forward to their response
PS we chatted to a few car loads of people who had just turned around in the gridlock and decided to go home. Every car load represented not only lost revenue but also bad PR. In the middle of the "credit crunch" no business can afford to turn customers away like that.
PPS who is "old blondy"
