At £20 per unit per night the campsite looks a bit expensive but does have, showers, toilets & a clubhouse - perhaps if a lot of Funsters show interest in this then could ask AHA events for a reduced rally rate? Alternatively package deal/reduction with Air Show ticket which is normally £20-25 for each adult.
Can see on website that they offer reductions on tickets for groups of 12 or more.

People do travel from all over the world for this Air Show & it was a great spectacle with loads going on when we last went a few years ago(y)
Big day meet possibility or just discounted group tickets for those that are in travelling distance?

Hi Angela........
We would be very interested in this....(y)
Debs just like there are 2 lots of Bertie Bassetts on Fun there are also us Wombles (Karen & Alan) & Womble (perhaps that's Angela?) :eek: Thought I had better say or it might stick & I'd get called it at the rallies :unsure:
Great that you like the idea of this as a rally though:D

Great to see the interest (y) For tickets the website says that can get a discount if buying 12 or more tickets so can anyone registering interest here add how many tickets they would want & whether just day visitors or may want to rally ? Hopefully once Jemhorn can gauge the demand he might be able a negotiate a pitch & ticket discount :call:
We would want 3 tickets & may want to rally for 1-2 nights depending on price (we only live a short drive away :))

You aren't really wrong as there is this option as well (wonder if they would let us take our motorhomes in?!) on Friday 10th July :
PHOTOCALL - 10TH JULY
Enthusiasts have the chance to drive onto the airfield and use one of the private enclosures situated on the Flight Line to view aircraft arrivals and display practices on the 10 July.

1st Entry Time: 0900-1000

2nd Entry Time: 1300-1400

3rd Entry Time: 1700-1730

Enthusiasts must remain in the enclosure till early evening, when arrivals and display practices have been completed, for safety reasons. This will be between 1830 and 1900 but ask that you are accommodating should times overrun.

Air Day personnel will then direct you to the static aircraft areas, which will be open until 2030.

Please note this is subject to change due to weather, serviceability or operational commitments.

Toilet and refreshment facilities are available.

Tickets priced at £18 in advance on the day.

Joint Photocall and Air Day packages are also available in advance.

Fleet Air Arm Museum also gets great reviews http://www.tripadvisor.co.uk/Attrac...Museum-Ilchester_Yeovil_Somerset_England.html so that's 2 days out plus 1 or 2 days (including Photocall Day) at the Air Show & either just across the road or just a few miles away with motorhome friendly parking & a cafe - what's not to love?!:h:
Not that we are biased as we live in Somerset :blusher: Makes a change to have some positive things to post about our area after all the bad press last year.

Haynes Motor Museum not only offers group discounts but a free guided tour if over 15 or more plus can do catering from cream tea to full meal see Broken Link Removed
Any Funster motoring enthusiasts out there? Perhaps if enough interested they would do a group deal price - Sunday lunch after leaving the Air Show (have to be gone by 12.00 latest) or tour & afternoon cream tea then perhaps permission stay overnight in their overflow car park ?! Alternatively same idea for night/day before the Air Show? Had a look on Google Earth & looks like they have plenty of space. Just an idea....

Sorry more ideas from the Somerset Wombles Tourist Board:imoutahere:
Group bookings at the Fleet Air Arm Museum have advantages too - again with the option of a guided tour, reduced cost entry & catering available from £3.50 for a cream tea to £10.50 - £12.20 for 2 course lunch with tea/coffee see http://www.fleetairarm.com/Uploads/Files/en-GB/catering packages for groups.PDF. On the website they suggest allowing 4 hours to visit plus time for lunch/cream tea so not sure how best this might fit in with the Air Show but again a possibility before or after if enough people interested... http://www.fleetairarm.com/air-museum-group-visits.aspx
Like the idea of group spending power & getting a better deal:)

Thank you - hope they can do some kind of deal(y) Any more Funsters interested in this potential 1-3 night rally / day meet in July in sunny Somerset? The more interest the more likely a deal should be :)

Have talked to group booking contact at Fleet Air Arm Museum http://www.fleetairarm.com/ (on same site as Air Show) & don't think that group booking offers that much benefit for the work involved. Best value is to use Tesco Clubcard vouchers http://www.tesco.com/clubcard/deals/product.aspx?R=46 or if paying on entry remember to fill in the form to Gift Aid your entry fee (no extra cost) then you can return free as many times as you like for a whole year (y) The museum is open as usual so ideal for the Friday if camping as just across the road & understand that the cafe has good homemade meals as well as cakes, coffee etc. It has a Tripadvisor Certificate of Excellence 2014 http://www.tripadvisor.co.uk/Attrac...Museum-Ilchester_Yeovil_Somerset_England.html. Hope this helps some of you :) Will post my findings with regards to the Haynes Motor Museum once the group booking contact comes back to me at the end of the week...
