What date is the modball?

Were looking at going the same time roughly as last year as it's the quietest month so everyone stands a chance of making it.

Now don't take these dates as gospel they are complete rough at the mo.

As for prices it's hard to say guy's as the exchange rate has dropped completely, i don't know what ferry prices are going to be, what accommodation prices are like etc

But last year as a guide i spent, 5 tanks of fuel 300, 16 laps of the track (8 euros lap), 35 per person per night Accommbo (4nights), 100 per person food and drink, 55 ferry.
