    I asked about an early booking Funster discount and just got the answer (y)

    Hi Jim
    We are doing an early booking discount of 10% for all our shows if they book before 1st January 2017. If they book on line and put in Discount Code MC17 then this will activate the discount.

    @Jim
    Sorry if this is in wrong place etc, and if its a dumb noob question;
    As I understand it Stratford (& Chester) pitches are in the middle of the racecourse.
    Presumably you can get your van in & out during the 10 days? You're not locked in so to speak?

    Yes you can, but not on the first Tuesday as that is race day. Most people go to this rally for the stroll or cycle into town along the river and rarely move their van once it's parked.

    Steve, the only time you have restricted MH movements, is on the Race Day itself.

    HTH,

    Jock. :)

    Edited..........Just seen Jim's reply.

    I used to work in Stratford, so would be keen to re-visit some of the nearby villages.
    Also, I'm thinking that 10 days is a long time without EHU, even with a solar panel - so am thinking a run out would give the batteries a boost.
    As I said, all new.

    Hi @Langtoftlad don't worry to much in June plenty of day light hours so no worry's with the Solar Panels. Re the Chester meet you can move your van when you like, but if you are on a rally and likely to be taking your van off site much it's useful to let the rally officer know so that they pan pitch you in a convent spot.

    Unfortunately I don't think I can make Chester next year, my new van isn't scheduled until the beginning of May
    (and I don't have solar on current one)
    But its a good point (for any rally I guess) to mention to the marshalls that you might be fidgeting.

    Chester is only 4/5 days and electric hook ups are available. :)

    If your going to move off site it might be best to let the tractor driver know.

    I was just coming on to say that this seems a lot more expensive than normal...

    Is the £10 per night for two people and two children, or per person? .... I wish they would give discounts to those not using the full quota of people. :( ...

    I had just told someone that the best show of the year is the Stratford Show * lovely town and butterfly farm and pub grub and entertainment if you want it etc etc.. but I struggle with the costs of these shows. Just love Neil Diamond.. ah, I am I said ..

    * except for this year when we were in 18 inches of water in parts of the field ...

    Unless you are very inefficient you should manage indefinitely in June.

    It's a great meet. Good walking and cycling. It's ebikes that can cane the batteries.

    If the four nights of entertainment are similar to last years Polish Abba mime band, then we won't be getting too excited. The room provided last year was wholly inadequate for purpose, being L shaped and not really big enough for the number attending.

    Stratford is lovely but 10 nights may be a little too long IMO, but each to their own as they say.
