I have to add.

John please don't take my moaning as anything against yourself. I know you are only passing on the info and you may as well be talking to a wall as arguing with the vboa.

Thanks for keeping up up to date.

Same for me John.

OK guys and gals, the booking details are now up in the diary entry.

VBOA are currently spitting blood because out of the blue the Billing management have said that vendors in the autojumble have to be licensed, leading to an expected slashing in number of vendors attending. This is VBOAs only source of revenue at the event. As a consequence this could well be the last one held there.

There is a VBOA meeting next weekend so I will know a bit more after that.

Fookin how much? get camping man! I ve camped there and it was unseasonably wet for the few hours that i was there, but i can whole heartedly recommend it. \Ive even slept in my van before now (against the rules by the way...as the van was french) so anything goes really. May even come this year and camp subject to the high tide.........in another french van funnily enough but that does at least have the decency to wear a vauxhall badge, rather fitting for the occasion i think. ;)

It would appear that it is not just us but all the car shows are facing these problems. We won't know until later in the year what the plan is. The VBOA has sufficient funds to carry on with a smaller autojumble, but we don't know what impact that might have.

It seems there is a new manager onsite who is trying to make is mark. Whether Head Office agree that a loss of perhaps £250k in revenue can be made up or exceeded is unknown. Hopefully they will see sense.

It is the small operators that will be missing. As I understand it those with companies, VAT numbers etc will still be there.

I agree with Ivan. The amount of Mk2 stuff available there has dropped dramatically over the years. Contacts here and Ebay being much better sources. The only real advantage at Billing is the reduced transport costs of large items, oh and a bit of impulse buying ::)

If you are coming for one day then yes, buy the £10 day ticket. Then you drive round to our pitch and drive onto it and say hello!

If you are early enough the chat is fairly sensible.....the later it gets the worse it gets.  When I say sensible its as sensible as it can be for strange folk for the love of the mk2 cav ;)

Still gutted I am not around this yr.......not sure I can make retro either.....rubbish.
