    Following the thread about a Mega Meet I wondered if there might be demand for 'club sites'.

    Not exclusive sites or meets but say one or two sites per county, recommended by members, where funsters might regularly go.......impromptu..... sites might also offer reduced rates (off peak or out of season especially)

    The idea is that members would just turn up knowing that other funsters are likely to be there.

    Getting to know folks is much easier at small meets and booking months and months ahead is not for everyone (me)

    Just a thought...........

    One thing that some members have done, especially on the Morocco and Spain trips is negotiate a deal with the campsites and then promote it on Fun..
    In Morocco, early visitors to sites haggled a lower price and agreed with owners that anyone showing a fun badge would get same rates.

    Marjal in Spain... Our own MrMotorhome set up a deal with the site and it lasted for 3 months. A code was used and members had to Pm to get the code, had to be done this way as we dont have any form of membership card that we could show reception.

    Yes, this is a really good idea.

    You quite often see posts on the forum along the lines of 'where are all the funsters?' so this would give people a better chance of meeting up with fellow lunatics.

    Maybe I got it wrong...........

    MHF is a forum......... not a 'club' like The Caravan Club ...... but when MHF meets are posted they are usually booked up well in advance......... often by established members

    My idea was that funsters would be able to meet on a more random and casual basis at known camp sites......

    You would book the site as normal with the site in the knowledge that because it was a 'MHF approved site' you had a good chance of meeting other members......... if your first choice of site was full you could look at other 'approved sites'

    Other campers on the site would be aware of MHF flags and badges and might end up joining MHF

    I am sure sites would want to 'sign up' and offer discounts ...........a bonus to us all

    While on the subject, what exactly are the MHF (motor home facts) "campsites" that appear on my garmin sat nav?
