VBOA
« on: 22 January 2017, 10:00:56 »

Not sure if this is right place[if not could an admin move it please]I see that the VBOA show that used to be hosted at Billing has now moved to Market Harborough showground.This for me will cut approx.60miles off the round trip distance,so quite handy really.

Just proves how much GM care,  the blue oval boys go to donnington, or Silverstone, GM based vehicle's get Market Harborough field sorry showground  :P

Agreed. Vauxhall must be the most complacent manufacturer in history of Motoring. Things improved for a while in the late 70,s and the 80,s but they soon reverted to type.

The market harbough event is being financed by LMF
ABS club secterary had a site visit there on Sunday with vBOA and said its a nice site, totally flat. There will be portable shower blocks and , unfortunatly, turdis,s for toilets as its, as yet, an undeveloped show ground. Prices for day visit and camping will be exactly the same as last years billing. On site security to keep things in order. Autojumble will be completly away from camping and show fields
7,8,9 July. I will post up booking details later

Was going to go but the Omega is still broken[surprise,surprise]I still might go as a "visitor"just depends on the weather and if I decide whether it's worth the 200 odd mile round trip.

  Last year at Billing was a problem caused by new staff member of Billings. He found a bye law that stated any non trade persons could not sell on that land. Different this year....

.        yes i heard that too. that probably wiped out most of the autojumble then ,with most remaining stalls full of tools and stuff you could buy anywhere. i assume market harborough doesnt have any such ridiculous rules.its great looking around the cars but the autojumble is the best bit

Considering I started this thread,I didn't go :D The Elite is still broken[it's only been like this about a year and a half ::)]and is busy in the lock up garage being totally ignored :-X.I just didn't fancy a 200ml round trip to go as a "visitor"and not part of the display.Hope it was a successful event though :y

Sorry I didn't see you there Baza! And we're not 'just up the road' any more. Hope to see you at some point, young man.

Said hello to plenty of people, no idea if any were OOFers or not, haha, but nice to meet you, if I did  :D. Good weekend, as always.

There was a rather shiny, well-looked after Diamond Black PFL V6 saloon by the green tent which looked rather well this year, but I'm biased...  ;) :)

No worries at all  :y Good to know there's an OOFer pretty close by, too. Give me a shout if there's any other bits you're on the lookout for, I'll check my 42 ton'sworth of spares, in case I can help  :D

  Show field was good but not enough toilets. Set out of the club fields area was appaling. Lots of club complaints about that.

Hopefully the organizers will take on the valid points in regard to the facilities and try to make things better for next year....that's if it happens there, or will it be back at Billing as the rumour mill is suggesting :-\ :-X

  Certainly hope its not back at Billing with all the Pikey scum. Trouble is, he who has the say, would drop MH like a stone if he has a chance as it means he dont have to do anything. IMHO ;)

Never made it to Billing,so I can't draw any comparisons between the two, but MH seemed fine for me and I would certainly attend next year. I guess it's a case of watch this space and see which camp the powers that be land in. ::)
