Some clot on our local FB page was having rant that since the IoM has a low Covid case rate there is no reason to cancel it. The thought that maybe opening the island to thousands of visitors might have an impact on their Covid rate hadn't crossed their mind.

I was over on leave for TT 87 with a couple of mates,  I recall staggering out of the Lido at about 3am, down the road to whispers until 5am then back to the B&B for breakfast before starting all over again ..... Ho the F--k I did it defies logic! Two or three pints now and I'm running for a Piss every twenty minutes :classic_laugh:

A lot of speculation about whether the MGP is going to get cancelled as well .... decision at the end of March 🤞

Was meant to go this year, got money back for flights ... re-booked our flights for next year after first lockdown. got to ring airline , think they only change destination and flight times, which no doubt will be an arm and a leg :classic_wacko:

I really want to go to the TT just once, just to see what it’s like but the accommodation sells out long before and the ferry prices are daft. Heyho. 

twelve months in advance usually, when i was going over every year as soon as i got to my hotel i booked in again for the following year

Yep apparently everyone books their hotel that way so to get a reasonable hotel you have to already have a room at one the previous year!

Boat prices are a rip off all year round! Best thing to do is camp, I know a couple of people who let rooms out,  if you decide to come at any stage let me know and I’ll ask how they’re fixed, I think they only take a max of two though?
