    toilets on a sunday as the day went on got quite bad again due to users lack of toilet training and disregard for the facillites and others. People had stuck paper towel in urinals then used them manged to miss the bowl when taking a number 2 the posh loo's someone had found it comical to throw all the paper towels about and flood the sides. Suggestion for toilets have one on each club stand for that club down to them to maintain so more respect should be shown to it and others dotted about for general use Bit more clarity on costing and rules/regs in advance for events running e.g. track pricing the need for helmets and needing full arm coverings to take the car on the track Pricing for the weekend for 3 nights to me was acceptable but for an overnight stop £50/£60 seems steep (only stayed the 2 in the end due to needing RAC home ) otherwise wouldn't have left until today Some other stalls might have helped the Bus/Farm Shop Brilliant saved on tesco run for small bits and what you forgot to bring. Missing some of the other type stalls your sign shops; window tinters; wheel refurbers; the bric a brac/ nik nak stools for those not after car parts Like my missus the general merchandisers; Not going down the auto jumble side as we buy the parts up there will be less to be bought simples but was just the variety of different things missing my opinion. But overall i had a Brilliant Time and a good Laugh with friends already made and met some new faces and look forward to the next event The Planes taking off and landing during the day was added bonus of seeing some old school plane tech and stunt planes as a freebie on the weekend ; Might be a drawing point for Vboa to approach to see if a small show could be arranged to bring in outside of clubs footfall into the weekend . That is pretty much most of the negatives i can think of that i see for the weekend otherwise as said i had a good laugh and enjoyed myself

    UPDATE - If the weather holds this could be one of the best shows It is clear that VBOA has changed, the old guard has now gone and the new, younger, team is taking it by the scruff of the neck and shaking it, hard. Gone is the day when we subcontract the Annual Show to an outside organiser, it is now in-house and boy, is it changing. Sywell, it is now clear, is a proven and well organised site for self managed shows. So relax, the basic show with all our pitches is still there, no changes as to how we organise or what we put on our stand for example, apart perhaps from a slightly reduced area from last year but that won't be a problem. B-B-Q OK if off the ground and dogs allowed but must not be let loose and no drones as the airfield is operating. Also a limited number of electric power pitches in a different area for £15 a night. VBOA will have a site map out within a few weeks. The usual car parades and best in show competitions will be there. The autojumble is back running through the middle of the stand area not the edge, with a hugely reduced cost to traders which should see lots more of them. We could have a Club stand if any of us want to get together and sell parts there at a knockdown £15 for a 4m x 4m pitch. All the food stands, probably plus a few new ones, plus a huge bar/live music venue indoors in a hanger (bands on Friday and Saturday evenings), onsite cafe and restaurant (part of the hotel) plus a couple of food pubs within walking distance, are there. There are toilets/rubbish points spread around plus central showers and 'luxury toilets' sited centrally. Now for the new stuff! Motorsport - a professionally organised and operated short circuit (around 700 yards) on a taxiway with one car on at a time, untimed (by them), for £25 a time. They will have 'real' cars there to show how its done with passenger rides at £15 to £20. Children's (under 16) activity zone - with climbing wall, football darts, bouncy castle, gladiators, suomo suits etc for £5 a day with Friday afternoon free on a £10 weekend wrist band, pay in advance or on the day. Interclub Challenge - As many Clubs as want to put up an adult/child team in a 'Its a knockout' type competition in the main arena. Current Mk2Cav Members pricing is the weekend ticket (Fri/Sat/Sun) is £45 until 30th April, then £50 till the 21st June when online booking ends. The ticket can be purchased on the door for £55, cards accepted! Day entry is £9 till 21st June then £10 on the door, not £15 like last year. Don't forget you have to be paid up to be on our stand. Historical data on ticket sales is not available to us but this year's are on budget. This show has an interesting set of ingredients taking it well beyond the shows at Billing. It should definitely be worth a visit this year. From now on all the profits are going to be reinvested back into VBOA related activities which is good for all of us on the Vauxhall community.

    Replaced the clutch set yesterday, it was worn to the bone, its a new car to drive now, still getting used to the new clutch as it is soft and sensitive now. Also took a 300km drive to the seaside to visit some friends.

    New rims on. Not the ones I wanted but got them for free so its fine , would be much more better if the car could go lower but on the rear are allready red lowering springs, and the front is 3cm lower than usual. How do you get this car to go so low because even if the rear axle touches the body there is still room left, I am confused ? There is also this pic from an Opel Meet we had past sunday on a local airport support track, I am the only one with Mk2 cav/ Ascona C. And a few cars from heaven

    Had fun as usual Saturday stand was a bit bare but about 10 cars on it but was a bit wet ground dried quick after rain. Sunday was hot lot more day visitors to stand and club members displaying for the day Venue has makings of a good show/site weather seemed to affect activites and numbers on saturday. But sunday with nice weather . more about stand was spacious for all to display and camp this year , At reps meating wasnt any big news of trouble or behaviour concerns just to make sure you didnt let the kids on the runway side of the fencing. Had spitfires bi-planes etc taking off and landing through out the day . So added bonus didn't take off early and were landed by early evening if we get behind our club Mk2 Cav then I belsieve we can make this a really good and enjoyable weekend for us as a Club to meet up and socialize Was nice to meet new faces this year and talk to Some. THANK YOU Andy King for club rep duties Sunday Morning at 830 AM my head really appreciated that. And the track was fun my thanks to the track organisers for their assistance and taking my Daughter Toni out after the cars little mishap
