I know that many CLs are also prepared to hold rallies in separate fields on their land. Two that I know of keep the grass cut throughout the summer for just that purpose.
What we need are recommendations from all of you out there for specific venues. I'm sticking my neck out here, but I'm assuming that the great majority of us are self-contained enough to survive a weekend with only what a CL can provide.
bsb2000 is right when he says that commercial sites will be unable to leave 'x' number of pitches clear on the offchance that we'd fill them. That's why I believe that a rally field attached to a CL is possibly our best option. Mud in bad weather could be a problem, as could an isolated position of the site, so these should be borne in mind when recommending a site. But there are all sorts of unusual places that could be suitable for us, and BillD's "Maker Heights" is one such example.
For me, the perfect site would be a field (or isolated car park) attached to a country pub, that had open views, walks from the site, and freedom for children to play.
Any other ideas, Folks?
