    Lot of choice there John. Thanks for the heads up. Need to decide whether I'll have a car to bring before i book. Got a few weeks yet.

    Was it in long term storage? Mot history check says its not had an mot, but that would only go back to when the online system was introduced. Do you have any history with the car that may help you? Its been somewhere dry thats gor sure to not have rotted away.

    That looks clean mate. Look after that, very few left and not as good as that.

    Welcome to our club. Commanders are pretty rare, most having rusted away so having a near roadworthy example is awesome. Get some pics up.

    Fair point....billing management make me nervous thats all. For us ots about cars, for them its about money and if something more lucrative came up, could we get dropped again?

    He already said he'd pay my billing entrance fee for 5 years if he didnt come in a cav....i got off a little lighter in that i only have to pay his for five years if i dont turn up at all, ie no cav required.

    Could get expensive if you dont turn up in a cav Jason!

    If lmf was the issue, why does the vboa not approach mh to rent the showground or a portion of it and then hire in facilities as required. Mh definitely had a festival feel about it and i wouldnt trust billing management not to do the same again in the future. It seems that the better billing option for us gives vboa most control over the event resulting in more admin work anyhow. Is mh not cheaper?

    VBOA 2019 BILLING 6/7 July chat thread

    Are you allowed to tell us what lmf said that was so bad? I enjoyed MH , and couldnt really see what is so much better about billing other than say showers etc which are more permanent. The site needs investment thats true, but im nervous about billing pulling the same trick again. Was there any feedback from other clubs on their issues with MH?

    Right thanks for clearing that up John. I had heard rumours that they approached us not the other way round. Thats the old chinese whispers at work then. What was so wrong with MH? I thought most people seemed happy with the progress of changes at the new site. To reiterate Paul's comments though, you are the man for the reps job. I appreciate its not always easy though, but you have my full support in whatever decisions you make on the clubs behalf.

    If billing is so keen to get the vboa back on site for a major event, surely the vboa must have enough clout to dictate how they want it run. For my few visits to billing, i always thought it worked well, save for the usual idiots driving like morons on site. Last minute camping was a boon, especially for those whose car may not be ready in time and therefore may not attend. If the vboa doesnt stand its ground now we could well get turfed out again in the future. Billing made a big mistake for which they will have paid financially and coming back cap in hand to offer show facilities again must give us the upper hand. Dont waste the opportunity, it will only be given once.

    You are indeed correct John. That was part of the agreement, witnessed by Andy i might add. Was good to see you and chat yesterday.

    Well back after an awesome time at MH. I didnt see last year's efforts to compare to this years but from what people have said its a huge improvement. For a show in only its second year i thought it was really good....sure some things could be better but i really think this venue has got the chance to make it superb and to equal billings offering. Thanks also to Jason aka newbody who has promised to be there next year in a cav!! A sterling commitment by any standards...and one which we have recorded so no backing out!!
