its officiall its on vboa inspected today and have decided its a go but you may end up camping else where rather than swans field (this is normally the part non vboa camping is put on the weekend) as they are moving trade stands and some smaller vboa clubs to there for the weekend.

not me - my chances of getting past Silverstone are non-existent.  For anyone else coming from M40 direction, please be aware that the A43 will be closed at the weekend due to British GP.

Shame on VBOA for planning the same weekend so close to a major event like GP  >:(

problem is that its the same date every year, not sure whether I will go now e.g., camping will give them a call tonight and ask, as the weather according to the met office is due to piss down on saturday in that area ::)

.... well, apparently the current info from Billing Aquadrome is that due to the fact there has been heavy rain, most of the fields are flooded / very wet, this has reduced the amount of people that can camp, so they are restricting it to VBOA members (and their guests, travelling and staying with them) only.

You can still go into the show & look around, but there is NO CAMPING for NON vboa members.

VBOA club membership list is here - Mig, Vauxhall Sports Car Club and Autobahnstormers are on the list ...

The response from VBOA following yesterdays visit to Billing;

The event WILL be taking place, This is a copy of an Email recieved earlier today from Ian Coomer, Chairman of the VBOA :-
"John Ankerman and I carried out an inspection of the Billing site this morning. As a result I can confirm that the show WILL GO AHEAD. However, certain of the fields we normally use are waterlogged and therefore John will be relocating some clubs onto fields in parts of the site which have not been used for shows over the last month and are therefore not cut up. Detailed changes have yet to be drawn up but the following information may be of help:

The arena field and the one north of it are mostly unusable. Therefore all Sunday arena activities are cancelled, ie the arena parades, the Chairmans Cup and the Special display of Luton built cars. John will relocate displaced clubs in Swans Fields over the bridge by Vinnies and on the large display field just left of the exit road, where the show was held many years ago. Billing management are putting gravel and sand on key field entrance points or creating new access routes by removing fences. We will not be installing the PA system.

The autojumble will be moved in its entirety to a very large tarmac area next to the display field. This is currently used for mobile home display and these are being removed to give us a large clear area of hard standing.

Clubs are asked to cooperate fully with John in achieving this major rethink. Given the recent weather conditions, all fields are wet and it will be a case of pitching tents sensibly and choosing firm areas for parking. Also, some of the relocated clubs will be further from the shower blocks than normal.

However, with a bit of goodwill all round we can definitely have a successful show, albeit not as planned!

PLEASE DO NOT PHONE JOHN ABOUT YOUR PARTICULAR CLUB LOCATION UNLESS IT IS VERY URGENT, as firstly he probably can’t tell you much until he has had look at a plan of the site and secondly he won’t be able to get it done for phone calls.

We will me marking out the site as usual tomorrow and the working plan at the moment is that a new site layout plan will posted at the gate from Friday.

Please put this message out to as many people as possible. Billing 25 is definitely on!

If you get this message more than once it’s because we are using all available databases. Better three times than not at all.

Kind regards

Ian"
