I see from the Events page that the National is now fully booked,with a waiting list.This is after just one month of the  booking opening date.

Is this a record for an National ?

Write your comments here...It seems ridiculous that the CC puts on a rally called the National and then miss-judge the number of members wanting to attend. . Looks like the CC needed to choose a much bigger venue.

..I would think its more down to resources that can be "Mustered" rather than bigger venue,it relies on as most "events",  the diminshing "army of volunteers"

When you have the option of returning to the Queens garden for a special event I suspect very few of the Exec would turn round and say 'No thanks, it might be popular this year so we'll look for somewhere a bit bigger - just in case!' Wink

Surely if it's already fully booked but there are still others that want to go, could there not be a waiting list in case of cancellations?

Indeed it needs to be manageable with the resources available.

Oh well that's our minds made up without actually giving it much thought. Would have loved to go but not sure of commitments that far ahead. Amazing all booked so quickly - and deposits???? Maybe, just maybe they could add another field?

Yes, there is a waiting list Malcolm and just as others said they cannot know their commitments that far ahead, there are also bound to be a few cancellations as things 'crop up' so it is always worth putting your name down just in case.

Oh and if that list does get very long then those in charge may well try and negotiate for a few more spaces - you never know your luck Wink

Yes maybe we will see.we are just looking forward to the weekend away .we rally a bit with Motorhome Fun and there is always different people at every rally so I guess it's much the same really.
