VBOA National Rally (Billing) 12-14th July 2013
« on: March 01, 2013, 11:03:31 PM »
VBOA National Rally
Billing Aquadrome
Crow Lane
Great Billing
NN3 9DA





Friday 12th to Sunday 14th July 2013






On the VODC stand
* Club BBQ on the Saturday night
* Best Car On The Stand Competition
* Secure Club Members camping area
All of the above from only 5 per member



Around the rest of the show
* Displays from the many clubs that form the VBOA
* Autojumble
* Trade stands
Plus much more
A great show for all the family



I know that 2012 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 had to be cancelled so lets put that behind us and remember what a great event this is for Griffin and Blitz enthusiasts.


'HOW TO ATTEND THE VBOA NATIONAL RALLY (BILLING) WITH THE VODC' (click to view)

Just a reminder that due to VBOA / VODC rules, you must be a current paid up club member of the VODC (or any other VBOA Club) at the time of this event to be eligable to attend. If your membership runs out in July then you can of course renew at Billing.


I know that there are people who are not members of any VBOA Club who set up camp just outside of the VBOA area which is fair enough but if this applies to you please be aware that as the amount of clubs within the VBOA rises the more space the official rally takes up so you may find that there is very little space for you to set up camp. If you still want to be one of the 'unofficial guests' then fair enough but why not consider joing one of the VBOA affiliated clubs? To find a list of clubs available PLEASE CLICK HERE

Yes i am hoping that we are not once again treated to floating tents, I  think after last years floods it would only take a bit of rain to get standing water again.

All we can hope for is a blistering hot weekend so that we are running for the suncream rather than the wellies and brollies!

Are you wanting to attend with the the VODC (most of the TC guys do)? If so then you will need to become a club member and pay your stand fee im afraid.

If you are already a member of another VBOA club and are planning toi attend with them then thats all ok.

VBOA rules state that you need to be a member of a VBOA club to participate in the rally.

if you need info on vodc membership or how to attend with us then just ask and i will post links up for you.

Really looking forward to this now, would of loved to of taken both carltons but to insure the other half on either one wasn't worth it. So shall take the red one and the other half shall be in her meriva. Just finished going through the camping stuff for the weekend, giving it a check and clean in readiness. Car is nowhere near the standard i want, just don't have the time to do anything on it
