Definitions (approximately):

A club camp is where a site is selected for members to get together and relax. These are generally quiet, rural sites and are advertised in the club magazine as well as on this page.

Official shows are not operated by the VWT2OC but for a small number of the hundreds of nationwide shows, we look to get club presence.

Club camping area – This is an area to camp together as we enjoy an official show, sometimes collected next to other clubs, sometimes in a dedicated / roped area.

Club stand – A gazebo as part of the show allowing you to meet some of the committee, renew membership, ask about upcoming events or offer your support to help run your club along with the other committee of volunteers.
