    + 1 for Saturday, for the not-back-to-work-the-next-day factor.

    Saturday all the way, I'll only ever attend Sunday races if they are short and close to home.

    Hehehe! I hears ya! Its not necessarily about going out and getting sh#tfaced that Saturday night but being good for Friday AND Saturday night to race Sunday totally kills one's social life

    Probably the same reason a number of other sports avoid long weekends (except AFL of course :) ) - not only the partners of the intended competitors looking for either a quiet or away weekend, but so are many of the volunteers that help put these events on.

    Add to that and you will find that costs over a long weekend usually jump by quite a lot - petrol and accomodation certainly do and many eateries (pubs, clubs, restaurants) put a 'public holiday' surcharge on their menus. What is petrol predicted to rise to at the start of Easter in Victoria? RACV are predicting $1.60 a litre, possible a bit higher...

    The final point is literally the traffic getting to and from events on a long weekend. How many here would like to be competing with traffic either going away or returning from their Easter break?

    This year I'm going to try booking post-race Mondays to annual leave.
    What's the difference, then, between booking the Friday to annual leave?

    Damned on a Saturday, damned on Sunday.

    The idea of recovering on a Sunday always appeals after a Saturday race, but the "other" commitments on a Saturday tend to make getting a leave pass a tricky negotiation.

    +1

    Saturday mornings I execute the role of family chauffer, carting the kids around to their various sports activities. In a perfect world I'd love a day of rest after a race.
