At the beginning of July each year the Bookings Secretary sends out the Booking Chart to owners, in priority order, inviting them to choose their weeks for the following year. OWNERS OF 'SPECIAL SHAREs' GET FIRST PRIORITY TO BOOK WITHIN THE SUMMER SCHOOL HOLIDAY PERIOD ONLY. OWNERS IN ODD-NUMBERED SENIORITY RANKS WILL BOOK ONE THREE-WEEK BLOCK. OWNERS IN EVEN-NUMBERED SENIORITY RANKS WILL BOOK ONE TWO-WEEK BLOCK. The Booking Priority System is designed such that an owner moves from the bottom of the list (11th or 12th) to the top (1st or 2nd) OVER A 6 YEAR PERIOD. Each year they move up either one place or three places (alternates each year). After one year as first or second, they return to the bottom of the seniority rankings.
AFter the annual booking process has been completed owners can request additional weeks FROM ANY that mIGHT be vacant. OWNERS CAN SWAP ALLOCATIONS BY MUTUAL AGREEMENT, OR 'SELL' THEM TO OTHER OWNERS.
