We have arranged a meet in the Gloucestershire area in May from 17th to 19th. This should be relatively easy to get to from many parts of the UK.

The location will be at the Tudor Caravan Park, Shepherds Patch, Slimbridge, GL2 7BP. Which is the same place as last year. It is next to the Sharpness Canal which gives the possibility of long flat cycle rides to nearby villages. Frampton on Severn if you go Northwards or Purton & Sharpness to the South. 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 we are on a field together, but there are no hook-up points on this field. There are some on the adjacent fields, but you will then not be with the main group.
The price is £17 per night and you book directly with the campsite 01453-890483. You must mention VW California Club to get the discounted rate and to be with the main group, you will also be able to come earlier or stay later at this rate if you book it at the same time. Campers staying in the rally field are able to stay until after lunch on the Sunday.

The campsite has given us 40 places on the Rally 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, please be aware these pitches are not near the rally field.

This was a photo of last years rally taken by MattBW from the Forum.

To get there:-

From the North, come down the M5 and take the Glos exit 13 then A38 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 to the M5 and take the A38 southwards.

Please try to avoid arriving at school finishing time, 14.45-15.45 as 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. Many thanks. Simon

I checked with the campsite yesterday and was told that there were 10 places left on our field. There will be others on the site, but you wouldn't be with the rest of us.
I have booked the Tudor Arms bowling alley for Saturday night so we will have somewhere to go and demonstrate our skills whilst eating and enjoying a pint or two.

For those keen to come, there are only 3 left now on the rally field... after which it will be full price on the EHU pitches away from everyone else.

We’re in. If someone can organise weather as good as last years Tenby meet we’d be very grateful!
