or is the real question "can we get away with it?"

A common theme during the pandemic both on this forum and in the wider community

& of course this is a public forum so wouldn't take too long for this whole thread to be found by an external party and used as evidence (one way or another).

We are a family of 5 so am I right in thinking that if I ask both nan and grandad to come to this meet I can get around us not being able to see both of them?

Nonsense you new what the aim was - simple no unnecessary travel - and you choose to ignore it and do many miles for chickens and exercise - despite a park on your door step because it didn't meet your preferences ....
How silly of me...

I must have misread the legislation which *must* have said, “no person may undertake unnecessary travel”.

How stupid of me....

And there was I all along believing the restrictions were in place to prevent households coming into contact with one another! What on earth would be the purpose of that! Households could mingle as much as they pleased so long as they didn’t travel and pick up the virus by a solo trip in the car.

The meet is going ahead and I am finalising attendees and payment with the site today.

They have fully prepared the site to follow the COVID guidelines and have put in place additional clearning routines. They have had a couple of rallies there this month and have not had a problem.

Each member will be booked in individually and it is up to people themselves to follow the Rule of Six regulations and observe social distancing and wearing facemasks when appropriate.

Very good site, well run, visited last weekend.Very impressed with Covid proofing, very clean facilities which are fogged with special chemicals late at night every day. Looking forward to meeting members and learning much more about our Cali. Thank you Lynne for getting this together and see you all next week.

Have an MB Marco Polo.
Met Lynne Peglar last year at Clifton Hampden c/s and invited me to come along given the California and MP are similar and that the club ‘tolerates’ us wannabes.
Have always camped in a small tent until I faced a mutiny from my wife.
Had the van for about a couple of years although it is a 2010 and am climbing a steep learning curve living on 4 wheels

Perfect, great! As far as I am concerned MP owners are always welcome at club meets.
Looking forwards to meeting many MP owners as we did in Dorset last year.
"See you there" as they say.

Similarly, the current law is very clear:

(1) During the emergency period, no person may participate in a gathering which consists of more than six people unless—
(a)all the people in the gathering are from the same household, or are members of two households which are linked households in relation to each other,
(b)the gathering is one to which paragraph (2) or (2A) applies and the person concerned participates in the gathering alone or as a member of a qualifying group, or
(c)paragraph (3) applies.

(2) This paragraph applies to a gathering if it takes place on or at premises, other than a private dwelling, which are—
(a)operated by a business, a charitable, benevolent or philanthropic institution or a public body, or
(b)part of premises used for the operation of a business, a charitable, benevolent or philanthropic institution or a public body.
(2A) This paragraph applies to a gathering if it takes place in a public outdoor space which does not fall within paragraph (2)(a) or (b) and—
(a)the gathering has been organised by a business, a charitable, benevolent or philanthropic institution, a public body, or a political body, and
(b)the gathering organiser complies with paragraph (5G).
(2B) For the purposes of paragraph (1)(b)—
(a)“qualifying group”, in relation to a gathering, means a group of persons who are participating in that gathering and which—
(i)consists of no more than six persons, or
(ii)consists of only persons who are members of the same household, or who are members of two households which are linked households in relation to each other;
(b)a person participates in a gathering as a member of a qualifying group only if they are part of a qualifying group and, whilst participating in the gathering, they do not—
(i)become a member of any other group of persons participating in the gathering (whether or not that group is a “qualifying group”), or
(ii)otherwise mingle with any person who is participating in the gathering but is not a member of the same qualifying group as them.”;
This is the legislation posted up earlier. It does not define "gathering" but I doubt anyone can claim a large number of people attending a club promoted event presumably on their own rally field is not a gathering. There is no problem with a large number of people provided they are made up of a number of qualifying groups (as defined) because is can be claimed that it is organised by a business, the site owners. However, the problem arises from the point that no mingling is allowed other than with people who are in your own qualifying group. Although there is no definition of "mingle" it may be hard to claim there is no mingling given the purpose of the gathering is to meet and chat to like minded people.
But of course you and the site may well get away with it, assuming nobody notices and makes a complaint.

We " mingled" with other campers last weekend at the site. We all meet and talk to others in any site from all walks of life and other parts of the country, that is part of the enjoyment . If we all follow the site rules, social distance open air, rule of 6 etc what is the problem.Coomon sense applies. If everyone met in the bar for a session, quiz different story and that is not happening.

I would think what you say makes reasonable sense in the absence of any rules from the government. However I was pointing out that attending a gathering and mingling with members of other qualifying groups of up to 6 is not allowed according to the rules - its there if you wish to read them. You could also google what various politicians have thought mingling means.
Understandably people are tempted to bend the rules or justify ignoring them to do something they really want and I imaging the campsite and many wishing to attend feel comfortable with the arrangements in place irrespective of the rules.

Caravan and MH Club appear to have cancelled all their rallies now until 2021, its a very grey area I guess as its encouraging mingling?
