    I tried to get in the CC club but they were full and had 40 members waiting list so we joined the MCC club, not only for that but their meets and more choice of CL's.
    I am looking forward to going, we have booked into the baltic wharf though from the 12th for 10 days, had to get on the website on the 7th Dec to do that as I have been trying for years to get there for that time and have always been thwarted, saying that even on that date I tried booking the 8th to the 12 and that was full at 9 in the morning of the 7th DEc on booking day opening, for gawds sake, how does it get booked up by then???
    Lots and lots of members must get on line and book baltic wharf at dead on 9 am.
    Its not a cheap site either so I was quite surprised.

    One reason Baltic Wharf gets booked up so quickly is that it is relatively small - only 55 pitches - for a popular location.
    Nice site. We stayed a few days in April a few years ago. Very handy for the city.

    We might go with MCC it depends on the weather, there have been a lot of tow offs in the last couple of years due to the soft ground. It`s an Avon group rally:thumb::thumb::thumb:
