VBOA National Rally 2013 - a date for your diary
« on: October 07, 2012, 10:52:09 PM »
The date for next years VBOA National Rally has been announced as the 12th and 13th July 2013

I know that this year was a washout and may have put some people off from attending but lets just remember that in its 30 year history this was the first (and last hopefully) year that it has had to be cancelled so lets put that behind us and remember what a great event this is for Griffin and Blitz enthusiasts.

I think you'll find that those dates aren't quite right, because they refer to the Friday and Saturday, they should be the 13th and 14th. Cheers, John and Sue.

Any word on getting refunds for this year?

This is the official line as highlighted at the VBOA meeting:-

In the terms and conditions of booking with Billing Aquadrome it says that no refunds will be given in an 'act of god' so technically they dont have to do anything as they have covered themselves with this statement. However they did issue refunds (or credits)  to people that handed their tickets in on the way out plus the booking agency did issue some refunds and credits apparently on the Monday after until Billing Management stopped them!

So in escence Billing have done more than they promised to do so legally they dont have to do anything more. Ok, its left a bad taste in a lot of peoples mouths but unfortunately no one has got a legal leg to stand on regarding this.

Will you be attending Mr Fish?

If so it would be good for a 'gentlemans wager' - loser buys a tea/coffee/beer for the winner.  ;D

Just had the conformation of the dates for next years rally and I was partially correct! (knew there was a 12 in there somewhere!)

The dates are Friday 12th to Sunday 14th July 2013


Sorry for any confusion!

I want to bring the Monza this time. How do I register for putting my car on the stand? Last time I was there I took the MK2 Cav turbo with me, but I was a member on Mk2cav.com

Thanks

Dont forget that if you paid your VODC stand fee for 2012 (i.e. you were booked to go on the VODC stand) then you dont have to pay for this year. If this applies to you then please could you add your name to the list as soon as possible  - CLICK HERE TO GO TO THE LIST

If the above DOESNT apply to you then standby we will be starting to take stand payments on 1st March. At this time the concession for those that paid last year will end - keeps things simple!

Any questions please fire off an e-mail to vodc-vboa@vodc.co.uk

If you want your car on the vodc stand then you'll have to join and pay the money but if your akready a member of ABS and want to join them on their stand then pay them the money... ;-)
