When you arrive
You will come down the main drive and see the rally fields on the left, Just before the entrance to the fields parked on the side of the road will be Chas (Forever young) with his flower power van and a few forum flags. Stop here and you will be asked your forum name, that will be cross checked with the registration number we have and you will be handed an envelope (nothing shady mind ) In this envelope will be the amount of wristbands to fully furnish all the wrists in your party. Also in the envelope will be the correct amount of food vouchers for your party, a bin bag which we'd like you to use and the information sheet below T:T:
Info Sheet you will be provided with
PITCHES: You can park your unit in any direction you wish on your allocated pitch, however we do ask that you do not encroach on anyone else by simply making sure the unit (caravan/camper and awning) are CENTRAL TO THE PITCH NUMBER (i.e the middle of your pitch is your pitch marker and you have 3M either side, with the vehicle on the left as you look at it)
ELECTRIC: Hook-ups are 10amps each. To work out the amps use the following guide
wattage ÷ voltage = amps
(for example) 800 watt hairdryer - 800 ÷ 240 = 3.3 amps
650 watt kettle - 650 ÷ 240 = 2.7 amps
600 watt microwave - 600 ÷ 240 = 2.5 amps
SITE: This is a quiet family friendly campsite, Parents are responsible to ensure that all children and teenagers are under parental supervision and after 11PM all noise is to be kept within reason. Anyone not complying to park rules WILL be asked to leave. (We’re not saying don’t have fun, just consider our neighbours is all)
TOILET AND SHOWER BLOCKS: These are cleaned regularly but if you do have any problems or spot something please either let reception know or contact one of the Wurzles organisers who should be identified by their WURZLE DUBZ STAFF hoodies as soon as possible so we can deal with it.
CLEAN WATER AND WASTE WATER POINTS: These are located in the centre of each paddock. Elsan emptying points are situate to the right hand site of each toilet block
DRIVING: There is a strict 5mph speed limit on the rally field and driving after 11PM and before 7am is strictly prohibited unless in the event of an emergency or you have been asked to leave the premises. If you arrive back at the campsite after 11pm you will have to park in the car park opposite the rally field and walk to your pitch.
MUSIC: The playing of music is allowed within reason but strictly no sounds off’s. Please do not be offended if the staff or your close neighbours ask you just to turn it down a notch, it’ their holiday aswell.
RUBBISH AND SMOKING: A bin bag is provided so please keep your rubbish in there and dispose of in the wheelie bin area before you leave, I’d like to leave the fields as we found them so there’s no problems for next year. As for fag butts please don’t chuck them on the ground as this will just add to my time at the end of the weekend while everyone’s on there way home as I’ll do a sweep of the ground before I leave. Obviously it is illegal to smoke in any of the communal buildings like toilets, showers and the campsite shops etc.
MOTORISED SCOOTERS, MINI MOTO’s, DRIFT TRIKES AND THE LIKE: are forbidden on the site.
DOGS: Dogs are welcome, but must be kept on leads and under full control at all times. Dog waste bins are situated on site and around the lakeside, please clean up after your dog.

Just line up at the top of the drive near the entrance to the site from noon where forum member KITVAN will hand you a sheet of clues to be found along the way as well as a welly throw to see who can throw it the furthest. (this is NOT a race, its a gentle ride through our Somerset/Devon countryside with the kids looking for answers to the clues on the move. The more relaxed you are the more answers you will get.)There will be 5 truly unique prizes and in the case of a tie the futherest welly throw wins. good luck.OR
Just do your own thing, maybe just chill on the site.
Saturday Early Evening from 5pm BBQ, meet and greet (please take your tickets and your own plates over to the catering wagon in the entertainment paddock) we would ask that people could stagger their arrival at the catering wagon as we do have 470 people to feed.)

Sunday at 2pm (ish) After this is the MASSIVE WATER FIGHT!!!!!!
Sunday Evening at 8pm: This is what it’s all about, get your Wurzles fancy dress on, grab your cider and head over to the entertainment field for 2 x 45minute sets from the MANGLED WURZLES!!!!!

£95 for 3 nights
Price includes electric hook-up, awnings, tents etc at no extras charge and all of the above.
P.S. Sorry to say this but anyone without a wrist band will not be allowed to enter the rally fields or entertainment area and these will be checked as you enter, so booking onto the campsite hoping you will be able to join us isn't an option i'm afraid as you won't have contributed towards the two bands and food.
Please don't take offence to the above, just trying to keep it fair
:dbTHE CIDER RUN:db
For those of you that want some Sheppys Scrumpy again this year Give them a call, order your cider (i can recommend the sweet farmhouse draught Cider) and I'll pick it up for you on the Friday. Just tell them you are from the forum and that Chippy will be picking it up for you.
