    PLEASE READ IF ATTENDING THIS MEET

    This meet was originally for around 40 vans however it has now grown to nearly 80 Cali's now. Here are a few reminders for anyone attending, especially anyone attending for the first time

    1. Arrival time on Friday is from 2pm onwards, some people ignore this but we have a set arrival time for a reason.

    2. When you arrive at the campsite you must check in at reception first. Once checked in please follow the signs to the rally field and wait to be checked in by one of the volunteers who will take down your details and direct you to your pitch

    3. Last arrival time on Friday evening is 9pm

    4. Day visitors are Saturday ONLY - please follow signs to the rally field, please do not come to the site on Sunday

    5. This is just a casual rally to meet other Cali owners, please do not expect to see any live entertainment, a show 'n' shine or fairground rides, we do however plan to have a quiz in the bar on Saturday evening but space will be limited.

    6. This is a joint meet with the Marco Polo Owners Club - Please be nice to them and no fighting, we have asked the same from them.

    We have recently ordered new Cali (should arrive beginning 2019). To allow my wife and I to hopefully see members set-ups we have booked on to the Dorset site (static caravan) for the 3 nights (Fri, Sat, Sun) at the time of the VWCC meet. Would be great to meet some members to get some general advice/tips.

    I am sure there will be a few other kids around that age coming along, its only early days and the campsite has already taken quite a few bookings so I can see this being a busy meet.

    Also, just to update we have invited members of the Marco Polo club along to this meet as they are yet to have their own rally and we thought this is a great opportunity for Cali owners to have a proper look at the MP and speak to owners about how they are getting on with them.

    You should be OK for now, so far we have around 20 bookings but I can see this being quite a busy meet. We will update this thread once pitches are limited

    Booked for our first meet, largely on the strength of the number of you who’ve said you’re also bringing kids with you - it’ll be nice for our two boys (seven and nearly-three) to have some company!
