    Just ordered advanced tickets for the forthcoming show. On promotion code enter TCC1 (Caravan Club members) and the advance tickets for under 60s drops to £7.25 and £6.25 for those more experienced in life.

    If you are over 60 and can go on Tuesday 14th October, there are vouchers in the Caravan Club magazine - September and October issues - that allow entry for £4.50. It also allows under 60s in at £5. It requires a CC membership number but I would be surprised if they bother to check on the door when the voucher is handed in.
    Every little helps !

    It says on the NEC site that there is organiser paid parking in the NEC carpark, BUT does it include MH that are 7 mtr+ long or just little-diddy cars. If so I need to park up out of town and press the CG125 into service for me and Wifey to putter in on.

    We went on the very busy Saturday & Sunday last year & there was masses of parking as once outside car parks are full they direct you to park inside in the vacant halls! It's not all tight marked out spaces so would think you will be fine but can always double check by giving NEC a call. Just make sure on arrival that they know that you just want to park not stay overnight at the CC rally or they might point you in the wrong direction!

    Yes, you can park your m/h foc as a day visitor but to stay overnight you would have to book with the Caravan Club for their Temporary site which is what we shall be doing for a couple of nights.

    We'll be there again at the weekend this year & thought that wearing Fun badges would be considered as advertising so will be wearing these instead http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/151028818036

    Thought it might be a bit of a laugh so us Funsters could spot each other (y) & say hello!

    Spent 4 nights in the normal car park last year. No one said anything. Went to the show every day. There was about 5 other vans spread about.
    Left the spot as clean as I found it.

    Thought about wearing large normal Funster badge but wouldn't that look like advertising especially if quite a few of us wondering around?! NEC staff are very hot on rules & don't want to get thrown out:( Smiley badge would like a secret code that only we know about but if asked about it we can extol the virtues of Fun to non-members without it looking like a hard sell(y);)

    And what is the worst they can say ? Take it off ??
    I have worn my badge at the NEC, at the german camper salon show.. at anywhere I want to actually (y)

    Do folk worry about wearing them at the big shows ( like Lincoln where we have just been ) ?

    Nahhhh.. Just do it.. no worries (y)

    We might be brave then but will bring along the plain smileys as back up:) Only problem with wearing them at Malvern was that having our first names on our badges meant motorhome/stall sales staff kept using them in an annoying over familiar way :mad:
