Will be unlikely that I'll be in the Omega as it still needs fixing[again!] and with little time to test it beforehand I'm not sure I can trust it to do the [roughly]120ml each way trip.Might run down in the Volvo 960 as a visitor though.

Going to bring one of the Omegas,the VXR8 can stay at home,as the last time I took it to the VBOA there was very little interest in it. But the very small number of Omegas that were there saw a steady stream of lookers.

Did Luton Festival of Transport, a few weeks back, and bumped into a few familiar faces, too as KeithABS can attest!  :y

Shan't be at VBOA this year, Luton was a belting day out and cost us next to nothing, versus what we've costed Sywell to be just ain't worth it, sadly.

Might see a few ABS/OOF members at NEC this November, work permitting, hopefully  :)

Is it expensive to get in at Sywell then? Or are you adding in fuel/food/maybe something from the autojumble costs?

Hi
New member here. (Not the right area for a 1st post, I know....sorry)
Not to be honest much of a poster as I don't really get on well with keyboards  :-[
So with that in mind I thought a better way of introducing myself would be to join you all down at the VBOA meet! Great idea I thought!
So I booked the time off work, paid for three days camping, filled an Omega with fuel and a tent and then, today, proceeded to spend over six hours traveling the 170 miles of many, many traffic hold ups and heat to reach Sywell.
Hooray arrived at last!
Except that upon arrival to be told by someone on the Autobahnstormers pitch that there was not going to be room for my son and I as non members of ABS.  An offer was eventually made for us to pitch for one night due to lateness of the hour but we would have to vacate the following morning.
Needless to say we were not happy with the cold reception we received and as such left.  Dissapointed by the experience we felt only the need to turn around and return straight home.
Good start  :'(

Have to say, that's a very disappointing response (from whoever was acting on behalf of the ABS - not you!), unless they really are expecting the site to be rammed. Not exactly the way to attract new members. And if it is rammed, it surely brings into question the wisdom of moving from Mk Harborough/Billing in the first place (which is a VBOA decision not ABS, but still).

Such a shame  :(
Please don't let that put you off Posting on here
it's an excellent forum if you have a an Omega  ;)
I met a few ABS members when they used to have a monthly meet at the services at Donington years ago
very nice people , though I've never joined ABS
was there no general camping area for non club members  ??? to over-spill into
I was going down today as a day visitor but won't if it's rammed
at the recent OOF Brackley meet everyone left a parking space between cars without even being asked
(which saves door dents and scratches etc) I was very impressed  :)
Lovely bunch of friendly people too

That's very disappointing, and makes me personally a little angry.  However, without knowing the facts - maybe the ABS site was fully booked, or as booked as the H&S lot would let them - I'm sure their is a good explaination.

I haven't been an ABS member for 10yrs or more (but still attend the local monthly meets), but it seems its run well by pragmatic individuals.
