    Default Billing has been cancelled

    Due to excessive rain, Billing Aquadrome has been flooded. People have been evacuated to the leisure centre. The marina has gone and the lake is about to burst its banks.

    I just spoke with Val (Event organiser) at Billing and she's waiting to hear if the event has been officially cancelled. They have serious water logged fields but she thinks the event may or may not go ahead, just waiting for the official answer.

    Just to bear in mind

    Announcements been on the vboa website for hours apparently, see the other thread about this that paulhb started. Not many people still here. We're all having breakfast then will start packing up. Vvoc have left. Most club stands are empty.

    Mind you we have had a lot of rain from yesterday dinner time till now. So I can imagine the state of the place. We can only hope that it drains well there, and there is No more rain on the way.

    Just got home, unpacked the car (EVERYTHING is covered in mud and soaking wet and I mean EVERYTHING including all the inside of the car )

    Had a quick shower and feeling a little more human now, what an absolutely SH$T weekend, company was good of course and nice to see everyone, but waking up at 3am to a flooded tent and the noise of revving cars all around you as half of Billing decides to do the off is not my idea of fun...

    Really pee'd off I spent so much hard time and money yesterday trying to get the skirt and exhausts sorted in time for it too now.

    Oh well, moving on...
