South London Centre Rules & General Information

 

DRIVING & SAFETY

RESTRICT YOUR SPEED TO 5MPH (WALKING SPEED) AT ALL TIMES ON THE RALLY FIELD.
CLUB INSURANCE DOES NOT PERMIT LEARNER DRIVERS ON THE RALLY FIELD. ONLY DRIVERS WITH A FULL CURRENT DRIVING LICENCE, INSURANCE AND ROAD FUND TAX (WHEN APPLICABLE), ARE PERMITTED TO DRIVE ON THE RALLY FIELD. DRIVERS OF ADDITIONAL VEHICLES AND VISITORS SHOULD REPORT TO THE RALLY OFFICE FOR DETAILS OF PARKING ARRANGEMENTS.

 

RALLY CONDUCT

The use of a rally site is a privilege; it is your responsibility to see that this privilege is not abused. Please therefore observe the Caravan Code and uphold the good name of the Caravan and Motorhome Club and the South London Centre.
All Rally-goers are expected to observe the Rules of The Caravan and Motorhome Club and the South London Centre, which are intended to consider the best interest and well-being of all members. The Rally Officers concerned will settle any matters arising there from and their decisions will be final. No advertising for commercial gain is normally allowed on the rally field. Ensure that only essential caravan equipment is visible outside the caravan. 

 

PETS

Dogs and other pets must be kept under control at all times and ON A TETHERED LEAD when on site.  The lead must not allow the pet to reach adjacent caravans, awnings and vehicles or no longer than 2 metres, whichever is the shortest.  Pets likely to be aggressive and/or cause personal injury must be muzzled at all times.  ALL pet owners are required to collect and remove fouling from the rally field promptly.  No animal shall be allowed in buildings or marquees at any time in the interest of hygiene, health and safety.  The only exception to this rule is for guide dogs.

YELLOW FLAG

If a yellow flag is flying on the flagpole, vehicle movement is restricted in order to minimize damage to the field.  Members leaving the field will not be allowed back on with their vehicles, until conditions improve and the yellow flag is removed.  The Rally Officer, who's judgement is final, will determine and impose any necessary traffic restrictions.

ARRIVAL & SITING

Rally opening/start times will be stated on the booking form. Please do not arrive earlier than this time, later than 9pm in the evening or earlier than 10am during the morning unless previously arranged with the Rally Officer.
Caravans/motorhomes must be sited as directed by the Rally Officer. Generally, the Centre discourages saving of pitches, although this is entirely at the discretion of the Rally Officer. The towing vehicle should be parked on the offside of the sited caravan unless otherwise directed. N.B. On rallies with hard-standing vans will be sited with safety in mind but may be closer.

 

NOISE AND GAMES

Make sure that your children and grandchildren do not become a nuisance to other ralliers and their property or their vehicles.  Do not let them play around the caravans/motorhomes with hard balls, kites, bicycles etc.  Any damage incurred becomes the parent's responsibility. Consider your neighbours when using a radio, television or during a social activity.  Please keep the volume at a level that will not cause annoyance.

Please keep all noise to a minimum after 11pm. Generators are NOT to be used between 9pm and 10am except in special circumstances and only with the Rally Officers approval.

SANITATION

Your own toilet is essential.  Toilet disposal points will be provided whenever possible.  If you use a toilet tent it must be sited alongside your caravan i.e. close to a blank exterior wall. Empty your toilet at the official disposal point only.  Toilets must be sealed in transit to the disposal point and NEVER taken to a fresh drinking water point.  Wastewater containers should be emptied as necessary and not allowed to overflow.  Rubbish disposal facilities may be provided; otherwise all rubbish MUST be taken home with you.  The site must be kept tidy and left clear of litter.
Mains water supply will be available.

TENTS

Trailer tents are permissible but must be sited separately and not interspersed with caravans and motorhomes. If the rally field layout is restricted, trailer tents may continue a line of caravans and motorhomes.  Pup tents will be allowed on the rally field, but the rallier's must report to the Rally Officers before erecting any form of tent.  The Rally Officers decision on acceptability is final.

SMOKING AND VAPING

Please be aware that smoking and vaping is prohibited within all enclosed areas on site i.e. schools, halls, marquees etc.

 

BARBECUES AND FIRE PRECAUTIONS

Open fires are not allowed unless permitted by the Rally Officer and with the authority of the land owner.  Approval for the use of barbecues, gas lights and gas heaters, rests with the Rally Officer.  Barbecues should be sited well away from outfits and raised off the ground to avoid fire risk.  They should not cause inconvenience to others and it is recommended that outfits carry a BS approved (in date) fire extinguisher. Please take care NOT to light barbecues close to gas bottles, cars and awnings.

It is recommended that a red plastic bucket marked with the word FIRE is placed adjacent to the caravan A frame and in front of a motorhome, or wherever is most visible.

COMPLAINTS

If a complaint is made to the Rally Officers or a member of the Committee, the right is reserved, if necessary, to expel any person and their property attending a rally. Justification will be notified and explained before this action is taken.

LOSS OR DAMAGE

All persons attending rallies and social events do so entirely at their own risk. The CAMC and the South London Centre cannot accept responsibility for any persons or their property.

TOWING ASSISTANCE BY 4X4 VEHICLES IN ADVERSE CONDITIONS

  1. The CAMC Public Liability insurance does not provide cover for this therefore no responsibility is accepted by the Club, or by South London Centre.

  2. The owner or driver of the tow vehicle should ensure they are covered under their own insurance and be aware that if a charge is made, it is not in breach of the insurance.

  3. Members may be requested to contribute £1 per tow toards the driver's costs.

  4. If an outfit requires separate tows i.e. car then caravan, a contribution may be expected for each tow.

  5. Members are advised to carry their own tow ropes and be familiar with the towing points on their vehicles.

POLITE REQUEST ON BEHALF OF RALLY OFFICERS

All our Rally Officers volunteer their free time to look after your interests.  If you can't make it to the rally or you will be late, please phone the Rally Officer so he doesn't have to spend wasted time outside, sometimes in adverse weather conditions, when their time could be better used elsewhere.  Thank you.
