    This year we will be holding a Rally to coincide with the June Victorian Celebrations.
    http://www.ilfracombevictoriancelebration.org.uk/
    The rally will be at Wildmans Lair, sorry smallholding on the Outskirts of Ilfracombe, bus services within walking distance will take you into Ilfracombe for the Parade and other attractions or there is a park and Ride At the Swimming pool car park. Whilst the rally exemption certificate only covers 5 days if our CFL license is granted by then some lucky people will be able to book the extra days. The cost is a measly £25 per van for the five days. (pay on arrival) There is water, waste dump, and rubbish bin on site but NO electric. We also have a large Marquee for evening entertainment. Dogs are welcome but must be kept on leads as adjacent fields will have cattle, sheep and lambs in them. Directions to the rally will be posted to individuals via email closer to the time(make sure you PM me your email address). But for now you can view the area on google maps by looking up EX348NZ.
    please reply to this thread to be added to the list.

    Cancelled

    It would appear I am expected NOT to charge for a RALLY on my property so this event is cancelled, selective invites will be made instead of open house. sorry people. The winner of the Christmas Charity auction Will still have a parking spot and facilities for the Whole of the Victorian Celebrations.

    I don't understand what is going on. A fiver a night seems like a great deal to me. Not many places left at that price. £5 a night will just about cover costs for the owner I would have thought. :Angry:

    Roger what if someone else holds the rally at your place then they could charge worth a thought.

    I have no idea how Jim's mind works so can't comment Gerry sorry. As already said £5 a night is cheap parking, who gets the money or what its for is nobody elses business. I feel discriminated against meerly because I own the land. Anyone else can arrange a rally and advertise it on here as its seen to benefit Funsters, Well I'm a Funster, well at least I was last time I checked. I have just spent £1000 on a marquee and fencing so funsters can come and visit am I really being unreasonable.
    I put as much effort into arranging the Carmarthen and shepton meets, is that wrong as well. Is my Marquee not of use to shepton funsters, sorry guys and gals I am confused and upset to say the least.

    Roger I do not understand why you are not allowed to charge. 25pounds for 5 days would not in my opinion be anything other than cheap parking.I would think you would be doing this meet and be out of pocket anyway and I would expect to pay for the use of the land in some small way I am puzzled?

    I am not discriminating against Wildman. It seems Roger wants to run the rallies as a money making concern, and I am just not happy about that. It is not why I worked at getting our exemption, the aim is to rally freely. If someone else is running a rally and using Rogers or any other persons land, and there is a charge to be paid, then chipping in to pay a reasonable fee to 'landowner' seems fine. But to have roger heavily/freely promoting "official" rallies at £25 a pop just does not sit well with me, it makes it a private enterprise and any campsite could ask to freely promote paying rallies on their campsite and where does it end.

    Dylan is not a trader and holds fun rallies at her place, how come I am different?

    All the Funsters' meets I have attended so far have been free and indeed some were less than free... let me explain... they were "rallies" attached to motorhome shows and as a Funster I paid less than I would have done as an ordinary camper in the general camping field.

    At these rallies, as well as the brilliant fun enjoyed with other Funsters, I was able to visit the trade stands and attend the evening entertainment if I wanted. I think the costs last summer were around £30 for these events...

    I would not pay £25 for a "Funsters" meet on it's own...

    Of course many Funsters only ever visit campsites so £5 a night to park is acceptable but I am used to £0 a night...:Rofl1:

    JJ

    When Funsters visit Quinta Majay they are not charged anything... I am delighted to see them...:thumb:

    You are trying to make this personal Roger and it is not. I have never allowed campsite owners to promote their own rallies. Other funsters have arranged rallies at Cumcuttan, the owner has not. I am surprised you cannot see the difference. Nor understand my position. The clue to the solution is in my previous post Roger. :Doh:

    Roger read this thread a couple of times and thought it a excellent idea and a good location and then could not understand why could not go ahead, but now I think Jim has given you a clue how to do it, should not be a problem to get it sorted. Good Luck, should be a good meet.

    This is all about interpretation of rules and regulations, I fully understand the non profit part of the license, however that applies to motorhome fun and not the landowner who can charge what he sees as a fair and reasonable payment be that per van, per person or for the lease of the land for a particular time. Motorhome fun does not Benefit from those Fees and the situation is therefore within the rules of the exemption certificate.
    The funsters would benefit from cheap parking and other benefits in a wonderful location and as always great company.

    Sorry to hear that Roger I was going to say could you book me provisionaly but hey ho as for you charging £25 of those quid things I wish I could get a deal like that more often.
    Of course you don't pay rates in Devon or have the poop tank emptied...are you a registered charity by the way......if so I am quite a needy subject.....can I come and stay free I am quite prepared to give you a drink for the favour say £25.

    All the best Rog

    Rick.

    Why not just avoid the problem and get another funster to organise the rally and collect the fees, they can then pay you for the use of your land and everyone's happy.:Smile::BigGrin::Smile::BigGrin:

    I'm not volunteering though, although we'd like to come, I'm not sure yet whether we can.
