Email me your pics and I'll put them in the feature from the event.  ;)


Loads of highlights, but the bbq was epic, as was getting 8 (7 pictured below) Calibres on the same stand!

Another great Billing weekend!

Special thanks to Jason and friends for the Cav Bar, Rocket again for the food, Greg and friends for cooking, Ivan & Clara (and Walter) for shopping, Steffi and Toni for club rep and raffle ticket duties, GreyDJ for attending VBOA meetings (and for wishbones!,) Daz for organising the stand, to all who helped and to everyone for turning out to enjoy the retro goodness!

Another great weekend :-)

Here's a link to my pics. Just shy of 400 so not emailing them or posting them up!


I tried to make the most of it this year as i'll be in Italy this time next year for my sister's wedding, so won't make Billing!

Aiming to get to more meets through the year instead :-)

Well folks my first billing was proper quality, thanks to all for making myself and Nigel feel at home.  The levels of abuse, especially on Friday night, were quite surperb ;)

2 things that I can take from the weekend

1) This is how Jonny usually works on his car

I think the foreground got filled by sunday, something like 30+ mk2s made it.

Sorry if I didn't chat to some of you much, everyone was doing their own thing (as was I a bit) but thats partly what made it a laugh.  Sorry if I legged it without saying goodbye, had to put in a shift a legoland with the kids and some gardening sunday pm......life in the fast lane ;)

Thank you Richie from saving me from another night of shite sleep and having to shower in a shower block that smelt of warm piss, there will be some cider at the retro campsite with your name on it to say thank you

Great weekend once again. Good to see the peeps I saw and apologies to those I missed. My highlights include; Old Rosie being on draft at the pub, The band on the Saturday night (So hot and they could play! lol), the convertible getting plenty of love and the normal banter and japes. However the best moment was the yearly cruise around Billing in the back of the convertible which resulted in both Brett and Munt desiring a convertible.

Here are some of my pics;
