  1. think it was viva never really saw a car on there the stand immediately behind the tents on our pitch it will give us parking for non cavaliers and makes our stand a bit bigger 😎
  2. can we have the viva club display stand as part of ours plz
  3. Holding off on the date as they were informed yesterday Silverstone is now that weekend as they moved it to avoid clashing with Wimbledon:)
  4. 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
  5. So I do believe with a few tweaks that the weekend can be a really good event And our support the club can have an amazing social weekend
  6. 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

  8. The chairman of Vboa isn't relayed to Billy Smart is he ??? Because this reminds me of a 3 ringed circus 🤣🤣🤣
  9. Its ok Andy im just sounding off i know you guys and John do your best for us. I'm just hating the way it's starting to appear that Vboa seem to have no clue as to what their doing Yes Paul the new venue does appear interesting drag strip and looks nicer grounds than MH but will it have the feel/vibe that MH had this year Time will tell lets hope decision is made now and no more changes
  10. With all due respect what the 😈😈😈😈😈😈😈😈 is going on with the vboa and it's show for 2019 been notified via their Facebook page now billing is out and now another new location. When last I was aware it was billing and we were to vote as a club on way forwards weekend just gone I believe Now out the blue it is now at a new place. Can we please have some straight dialouge of what is happening cause all this chopping and changing is making this seem an utter shambles and more hassle than its worth sorry if I sound like having ago at people not meant to I know you guys do your best just fed up hearing it over Chinese rumours and other places
  11. Most prob 3 nights fri sat sun subject to costing and camping on club stand and not having to state what vehicle when booking cause at minute cav is still in bits 😂😂🤣
  12. It's ok if it was not camping on club stands by car like old days (option 1) then it would have been a definite no from me as I attend for the social side of things more than the cars 😀😀😀 but like to be near it
  13. With the 2nd option will we be camping on club stands or by cars or still in designated camp areas
