Any idea of the likelihood of getting a mid week non club permit for Mongo Gill?

It's a while since I went, but nothing to lose by giving the owners a ring at Stump Cross as Mary's Boy suggests.  It used to be that all in the party (must be more than one!) sign in the book at the show cave, then they're happy.
