    Was hoping for gymnastics tickets but not at 450 a go.

    OMG!!!
    Some of those prices are way in excess of what I pay to see EC!
    [Mind you, I`ve never seen him pole vaulting. ]

    Did you see the top price for the opening ceremony?

    They'd have to guarantee me EC pole vaulting for me to pay that.

    OMG thay have BMX'ing. I would LOVE for the boys to see that!!

    125 x 4 though which i'm guessing are for the best viewing spots - hmm, 'tis a lot of dosh.



    Don't think i'll be able to make it to the opening ceremony unless i sell the house first!

    Shocking. So much for it being the people's olympics. I was hoping to go see the gymnastics too Dawn, but that's not looking likely!

    50 to watch the Marathon? Is that not just run around the streets of London?

    There'll be some sessions where I can buy Steven a ticket from 9 but he'll have to go on his own.

    Maybe I'll just go to Disney World instead.

    My thoughts exactly! We could have a whole holiday for the price of watching one session of something! We'll watch it on the telly I think!

    I'm thinking that at over $300 per ticket (best seats)to see the Equestrian final is a bit steep when I can watch it at home, with probably a better view, and in my comfy clothes for a whole lot less (Let's not even discuss the cost of getting to the UK and finding a hotel)
