On previous posts, I have discussed some of these issues. We accept all of the above named memberships within our
restrictions. We set the restrictions, not the camping club. If it were otherwise, I would not accept any of them. Why would I or any other Park accept a !/2 price reservation during seasons or other times when we are turning away people willing to pay full price? During our Summer season, we turned away apporximately 2500 people this past Summer, and we are already 93% booked for next Summer, so there is no way we are going to accept a reservation during that time frame for any of the 1/2 price clubs.
During our off-season, we accept them without restriction because our off-season monthly rate is actually less than the 1/2 price rate, but that is our decision, not he discount club's. The 1/2 price rate only applies to the non-discounted daily rate on all of the clubs, not the weekly, monthly, seasonal, Good Sam or other discount rates, and that fact is fully disclosed by all of the clubs in their literature and directories. No one discounts a discount. You must choose which discount rate will apply best for you.
As we move forward and we begin to fill up on weekends or holidays during our off-season, we too will probably further restrict our off-season acceptance of the 1/2 price discounts to weekdays, non-holidays, or limit the number of days of acceptance. We only participate in the 1/2 price clubs in order to put people into empty sites during our slow periods and to further expose our park in their directories to customers who would not otherwise find us.
I hope this helps explain the different restrictions found in the directories among different Parks. The clubs have no say-so into when the participating Parks accept the discounts or on any other restrictions placed by the Parks. Different Parks have different busy seasons and/or different fully booked weekends, holidays, or local festival events.
Agian, thanks for letting me put in my 2 cents worth.
