I agree to adhere to the rules & regulations of the campsite and to keep dogs on a lead whilst on the camping field or take-off field. I will report any damage to the meet organiser.

The Club regrets that, due to unacceptable lack of control of and cleaning up after some animals at previous meets, any non-compliance with these perfectly reasonable conditions will result in a person or persons initially being warned and subsequenlty asked to leave the event. Exclusion of the person(s) from future Club meets is likely.
