Finally, Always be sure to organise the weekend well in advance to avoid disappointment and additionally, give your group a wide selection of choices and greater flexibility with your days. See which weekends suit most people and book accordingly. You can never please everyone and you’ll find that a minority may have to postpone other plans or miss out. A minimum of 2 months pre-planning is recommended.
If you are not all traveling together make everyone knows each other’s plans, so they are able to contact each other to organise travelling in groups. Try starting an email chain with everybody’s addresses and get everyone chatting before the big weekend. Try to collect all of the costs for each group member in advance (especially accommodation and activity costs). You’ll be hard pressed to collect it all on a Sunday morning after the event!
