There are only 4 places left in the main rally field as of today.
Once these are gone you can still join us but won’t be pitched with the Club, you would have to book on the main site and pay the standard rate. If you do book on the main site, if you mention you would like to be near the California Club meet they will try and locate you as near as possible to us.

If the rally field is full you can now book your pitch online on the main campsite, there are plenty of pitches right next to the rally field

Thanks @Martin and if anyone does wish to book on a standard pitch then make sure you mention the California Club meet and they will endeavour to locate you nearer the rally field.

You may better off calling the site in the morning and explain you would like to be near the Cali Club group, sure they will try and locate you near the main group if possible.

Right Cali gang (have I earned my place and right to say that?)
I have ordered the brandrup pop top liner after checking out Jim and Maggie’s. if it arrives before the Slimbridge weekend I could bring it with me and have a group bonding exercise

It’s got to be reasonably warm to get the Velcro to stick properly, here’s hoping for good weather. I fitted my liner a few months ago so I can probably still remember how to do it if you need a hand.

We are hoping to attend the next rally at Slimbridge. This would be our first rally. Is there a programme of events? Apart from having a weekend away, we also want to pick up some top tips about how best to organise our lovely Beach.

Hi, for this coming weekends meet at Slimbridge there is no programme of events, it is very much an informal meet. There will be plenty of opportunity to discuss all things Cali related with other members I’m sure.
Look forward to meeting you Friday if you are coming.

No Dog show? No Live music? Anything for kids to do?

We’ve been to quite a few meets here and never been short of things to do. There’s some good walks along the towpath and the wildfowl trust is also just a short walk away.

Hello to all that are booked in for Slimbridge this weekend, not long now!

I am going to attempt to make some larger name signs for each member to display on their windscreen, as previously mentioned earlier in this thread.
If you would like you first name(s) on this sign along with your forum name could you please edit the guest list above and add your first names to the Notes section? Humans only ;)
I'll then create an A4 laminated sign for each Cali owner. Certainly helps break the ice and also helps me remember who's who!
