A suggestion for those who are attending.
Place a notice in the windscreen with your Forum name on it.
May help to break the ice.
When I arranged the last Club shop meeting in Bolsover I produced such notices for all participants. It certainly did help break the ice. I still use mine!

Great! Sadly cannot attend the meet but quietly hoping for a COTF in the summer months…
Would be nice to see some members again ‘from back then’ and to get to know new ones; we had so much contact with each other during the long waiting times (especially in the thread New T6.1 order delays ;)).

We have booked Fri 24-Sun 26th of September at Tudor Park and the price will be £40 for the 2 nights.
(£20 per unit per night. Minimum stay 2 nights.) Extra nights they will also kindly do at the discounted rate. So if you wish to get there before Friday or stay after Sunday you will be able to do this at the same rate.
All bookings must mention the California Club to get the discount which will then be applied. Will be easier to do over the phone 01453 890483 as the on-line booking system is not so flexible.
The location will be at the Tudor Caravan Park, Shepherds Patch, Slimbridge, GL2 7BP in the same place as last year.

It is next to the Sharpness Canal which gives the possibility of long flat cycle rides or walks to nearby villages. Frampton on Severn if you go Northwards or Purton & Sharpness to the South. Their website is http://www.tudorcaravanpark.com/

There is no direct access from the field to the canal so the site is safe for children.
It is also only ½ a mile from the Slimbridge wetland wildlife reserve.

The site is level and there are no hook-up points on this field. There are some on the adjacent fields on the site, but you will then not be with the main group. Campers staying in the rally field are able to stay until after lunch on the Sunday.
The campsite has given us 25 places on the Rally field, we have the canal side of the field only this year and there will be other campers on the other side of the field.
Should visitors wish to stay on an EHU pitch they are not covered by the Rally discount and will pay full price as per prices published on the website which is about £52 for the 2 nights, please be aware these pitches are NOT on the rally field but are within a short distance of it.

To get there:-

From the North, come down the M5 and take exit 13 for Stroud then turn right to A38 South and follow signs to WWT Slimbridge.

From the South, take exit 14 from M5 & then A38 North and follow signs to WWT Slimbridge.

From the East, take exit 18 from the M4 and follow the A46 to Stroud. Then follow signs towards the M5 and take the A38 southwards.

Please try to avoid arriving at school finishing time, 14.45-15.45, there is a primary school very close by & the roads are very narrow around here with few passing spaces.
At the roundabout on the A38 brown tourist signs direct you to the WWT & Tudor Caravan Park which is just before the canal bridge. Pub on the left, drive through the pub car park and reception is on your right.

Could you please add a note to this thread when you book so we can keep a track of numbers please.

See you there I hope
Simon

Booked in. No problems over the telephone. Paul Dickinson. Just me - wife at a Zumba weekend in Bournemouth!! Can't add to the Guest List probably because the maximum number 40 has been reached.

Excellent, look forward to meeting you, it’ll be much more fun than Zumba.

@Martin or @calikev can you edit the rsvp to allow more guests please?
Thank you

Although having sold our California, we really wanted to come, having been to a previous Slimbridge Meet, and really enjoyed it. So booked in at local BB, and hope to make the trip in our MGB if the weather looks half decent.
