    That caravan club wardens occasionally get a bit fed up and take it out on members.
    I completely understand their dilemma given the number of complete knob heads who are members
    Very clear instructions for new arrivals while the office was closed and a big notice to read the office door before going on site!
    I booked a non awning pitch and knowing my length the wardens reserved a pitch for me and coned it off
    We arrive and find this complete idiot parked where we should have been and buggered off out
    The warden has now checked the bookings and not only did he remove the cone but he booked an awning pitch which is a white peg not a blue one
    I'm waiting for them to return to see what an idiot looks like

    I'm happy where I'm pitched but why did he move the cone ?
    It could have been someone just gone out for the day
    Being on the wrong pitch type is no joke either as it stuffs other people up
    There are three muppets here on the wrong pitches

    No I'm on an alternative non awning pitch and told the wardens straight away that I'm happy as is but it doesn't help them that he has taken a blue peg when he booked a white one. The issue really is that he's thick and ignorant

    On most of the sites we go to the entry is usually a barrier with card access or code. No entry until booked in, then told where our pitch is. The wardens shouldn't allow anyone on site until booked in IMO :mad:

    I hope they move the muppet anyway and give him a good thrashing :LOL:

    Thanks Antony

    I'm proper chilled Eric (y)
    I know from experience that the pitch that was coned off for me would not have got a satellite signal.
    Had that not been the case I would have had words and have him move.
    He's now washing his van another rule infringement :LOL:
    His appearance does fit the profile of silly old sod, A big red nose and some extra long shoes and he could play the part of that clown on the Simpsons :ROFLMAO:

    Nothing wrong with the booking system I don't understand how anyone draws this conclusion that there is.
    If you book a pitch with space for awning or a pitch without awning then that IS WHAT YOU HAVE BOOKED you can't just turn up and park on what you like as that just dismisses everyone else as if they don't exist. It's not rocket science and the price is the same for either. If a tugger has booked for a week and arrives to find their previously booked awning pitch is occupied by some knobhead in a motorhome who didn't book an awning pitch then it does not work.
    EDIT likewise if you have an 11 metre RV and the warden saved the only pitch big enough on site for you and you arrived to find a 6 metre Elddis parked on it, who is the knobhead?

    Please leave my 6mtr Elddis out of it. what I am complaining about, is they do not take a deposit when people book. so they do not turn up. it leaves empty pitches. and it makes a lot of very angry campers. these so called members book early in the year. so no one else can .and if you ring and complain. all they say they are looking into it. moan over.@Techno100

    I cant understand why they play this blue peg/white peg game, after all, there's no price difference........Except for pitches where awnings wouldn't work, then all the rest should just be awning sexual..........(a bit like Bi-Sexual). It would save a hell of a lot of trouble in the long run.

    Out of interest Andy why did you book a non awning pitch, we learnt the hard way that on a CC site near Belper the non awning pitches are all very inferior, typically grass and on the corners so triangular in shape and right alongside the road

    I will now always take a slightly spiteful approach and book an awning pitch, they all cost the same which is another oddity

    or more likely not bother with CC club sites, we are only really CC members for the Cls and Scottish club sites which are mainly affiliated anyway
