Hello All,
Brinkcraft advertising hen & stag parties weekends-with a free bottle of bubbly. Must be desperate times

As we all know they do not give a fig for other users.  Actively encouraging alcohol afloat is not the responsible act of a good neighbour. Maybe when a few boats get trashed they will change their mind.

I shouldn't think one bottle will make much difference to the summer holidays mayhem

Sounds to me like they're trying to run a business.!!
Do members here seriously think that the bottle of bubbly will increase the stag/hen party's alcohol consumption over the week?
Does anyone here honestly believe that any such party will turn to drink as a direct result of this promotion??
If the answer to either of those questions was "yes" then getting out more would be my advice, but if the answer was "no" to both then perhaps we need to start an organisation, and call it "Party poopers anonymous"

Maybe they leave a note on the bottle to "Drink Responsibly"...


Free booze typifies the attitude of some hire yards, just regard the Broads as a means to make profits, and stuff the consequences for anyone else there.   Frown

As I remember it, quite a few yards give free bottles of wine to their hirers, so why not specifically to stag/hen parties?

If I were running any type of business on the broads (or anywhere else) my primary objective would be Profit. I would use whatever promotions I thought might work (within the confines of the law).

Responsible drinkers drink responsibly, irresponsible drinkers drink irresponsibly. A bottle of bubbly split between x number of people will not change one type into the other. It will make no difference.
Further, if the drinkers are of the irresponsible type, I doubt that the bottle of bubbly alone will cause much mayhem. Heaven forbid, but they may drink other booze in addition!

The bottle of Bubbly won't get drunk anyway.

It will be shook up and sprayed at everybody.

Private or under hire - bet more are wet than Dry in terms of alcohol at any one given time

perhaps to the non drinker a voucher for a bag of chips from Kens would appeal more - although not as attractive ??
