I am sure that someone will just point me at the relevant post but for a couple with a caravan can somebody please confirm whether the price is the 20 per night that the Wicksteed Park website lists.

Is "our" camping part of the general camping in 2012?

You do not need to book or be with a club, just turn up and enjoy. I would recomend some sort of cover to keep the sun off you {-) {-) {-) {-) {-) {-) and a seat for the boss other than that, see you there. As you enter the park you will have to pay for parking, not sure what the cost is this year, but it aint bank breaking.

The WPMBC have arranged with the park for us to have an area, it should be roped off with a sign I hope it is big enough.

I haven't seen any posting from him for a good time now. As long as he is OK. I don't suppose he has said if he is going to Wicky park this year?

Well i have tested out me new (new to us) caravan up in cold Norfolk this weekend. It all worked just fine so as soon as I get paid I will call Wicky park and book in.
Now then doses anyone have space for my 3 boats on there tables? 52" Arun (have own table )+ Fishing boat and fluffy punt 24" long.  I can bring my small genorator so we can have some charging during the day, and to run a flood light for the eve BBQ . I don't fancy push starting all the cars on Sunday morning !!Can someone bring a tall stand to lash the light to?

Would it be a plan to maybe combine the two events at beale park and wicksteed park?
as beale has a very good size lake plenty of area for the traders as well as camping and other such facilities
the lake is devided by bouys and is less prone to windy conditions

It has been said that Beale needs a kick start and maybe this could be it to combine the forces of the clubs to keep it alive?
