VBOA 2019 Sywell 6-7th July Booking info etc thread

Recommended Posts

Bit of an update this morning from VBOA. As before, we will only let our paid up members on the stand.

Thank you to all who have passed the information around to their clubs, such that ticket purchasing has started. From that we have had some feedback, and we have some to pass to you too.
 
Firstly there has been some concerns over how club affiliated attendance is "policed". This will be carried out in more or less the same way it has always been. Its an honesty based system where the person states they are from XYZ club and when they arrive they
a) go to that club and
b) are supposed to be there.
 
We the VBOA do not verify club membership for purchase/entry based on what the ticket purchaser selects.
 
Secondly, some people have asked or rather were discouraged when it came to booking the tickets as it was understood that Ticketease requires a Facebook account to login and buy. This is not the case. It would appear that they would like you to login with your Facebook account BUT this is not required, there is the alternative method to login (as normal for many, with an email address etc).

Another update

We have received the following questions, please see answers below. please share this info with your club members

 

One Club member has asked is there a telephone booking option as not every club member is on the internet or may not be happy making purchases on the internet?

 unfortunately not, as with most things this day and age, it is all operated without the intervention of people. you can however, pay on the gate or I'm sure clubs would be in a position to accommodate the odd one or two members

One Club Member would like to know what happens if they take 2 cars,1 motor home and a tent?

 if it is a case of mum and dad in the camper and 2 kids in a small tent with a show car then this would be the £10 extra car charge. if its 4 mates then it would require 2 tickets. we have a trusting policy and would expect our members to comply, anyone trying it on will be refused entry or charged the extra at the gate.

Another wants to know If you come on the Friday for three days camping do you have to pay 3 days for an extra car?

no, the extra car charge is just one day
Are dogs allowed?
yes, same rules as elsewhere, dogs are allowed but must be kept under control

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.

Get booking :)

Hi john I have tried to book through Facebook but it said not recognised password and with e-mail and it said the e-mail isn’t recognised. Also it doesn’t give option to book an extra car could you advise please.
