    Talking to a very nice man earlier today about one of the above he made me aware of a facebook group called

    'The camping and caravanning club - All DA's'

    Nothing to do with the actual c&cc - it's run by a couple of blokes who are committee members of one of the DA's.

    I've had a quick look and it seems very good (he did tell me the club have tried to buy it:Eeek:) but they've refused as they want to keep it run by members, for members.

    Has lots of info about the THS's /DA meets etc.

    It is a closed group, so you have to ask to join & they also request an email with a pic of your membership card.

    Thought it was worth a mention on here:)

    There is also a c&cc app called 'out and about' which gives details of holiday sites and meets. Seems to work quite well.

    These meets are all listed at the back of the monthly magazine you do need to show your membership card though I believe, and are run by members of different area sections but as I understand it all members are welcome.

    Yes all members are welcome on a first come first served basis, unless told to book in advance. You do need to show your membership card on arrival.

    That's one of the great attractions, especially when outside influences can mean late plan changes.
    MCC rallies are the same.

    Went to one in Cromer a couple of weeks ago. Organised by our area local members... quite cheap too at £10/night showers, toilet, water & dump.
    It was very popular.

    About a 15min stroll into town too!

    I'm not 100% sure that all meets are listed in the mag - I've seen several listed on the Waterside DA website that haven't been published. The booking officer I was chatting to yesterday did say it all depends on the da's submitting info for the mag cut off dates (and also the club keeping up to date)

    I have the c&cc out & about app on my ipad but don't find it easy to use - perhaps that's just me:confused: it's designed to run on a phone I guess.

    I've only had a facebook account a couple of months and don't particularly like it but I do like that with this particular page you can look at events by date order and click the links for more info.

    It's just another tool and anything that helps us to find value for money places to stay is fine by me:)

    I don't know to be honest - I seem to think that Roy was using it a while ago @Khizzie how are you finding it? Can you help Madge with her query? (Apologies for my cr*p memory if it wasn't you:rolleyes:)
    We always try to remember to take the latest mag with us anyway:D

    You can access and use the website without being connected to the Internet

    No doubt that is true - and the mag can't hope to keep up with late changes due to circumstances such as waterlogged fields - but the DAs tend to keep their own web sites up to date don't they?

    No idea Graham - but with the 'All DA's' you'd only need to look in one place, no need to know which DA is running an event that you were interested in. I never thought I'd find a use for facebook but am finding it helpful with regard to local businesses.

    @Khizzie isn't that the one Madge was asking about?;) (The club app)

    At the end of the day FB is just a tool so if you find it useful then that's fine, well worth using. Their attitude still doesn't attract me back though :)
    I just used the app to find a substitute destination for the next few days as we had to cancel our planned Tall Ships trip :)
