Booking systemA booking chart for the following calendar year is 
circulated. Each owner has a priority for that year,
 and moves up a couple of places each year: after a 
year at the top of the list, the owner then starts 
at the bottom, and after six years the cycle begins 
again. Each owner can choose two weeks (separately 
or as a fortnight) in the ‘high season’ (April to October), 
and one week in the remainder of the year. By this route, 
thirty-six weeks are firmly booked before the year begins. 

Allowing for time for winter maintenance, the remaining 
fourteen weeks are booked with priority in reverse order
 to the original chart, so having last choice originally 
does have its compensations. These extra bookings 
are confirmed on the first day of the month before the 
month of the booking.
Priority for school holidaysThere are "special" shares, for which a £250 premium is paid
on the running costs each year, and this entitles those owners
to priority on the booking form for school holidays
