    Default Initial Information

    Billing
    A slight problem with Billing next year. In order to have a display you need to be an associate member of the VBOA, who run the show. In order to gain membership, you need to have had paying members for at least 12 months, and all associated insurances etc etc. The problem is, 1) we don’t charge members, 2) Even if we did we wouldn’t qualify for next years show. They used to allow a limited space for guest clubs, but I need this confirming. This information is what ive picked up from other clubs trying to gain membership and I havent had this confirmed from the VBOA myself yet.
    What we are hoping to do is attend Billing anyway but I will try and reserve us and area at the side of the show where we can camp etc. If you want to polish up your cars and arrange them in a nice way then that’s your perogative, but it wont be an 'offical' display…If you get my drift

    How do we go about this for next year - getting affilliated I mean?

    As we aren't a paying club does that mean that we will never be allowed in the show officially?

    its something i need to discuss with the VBOA and see where we stand. I am hoping that my claim that we are self funding by the sales of merchanside and donations meaning we dont have to charge membership, will allow us in. We will be required to take out PI insurance though, which may dictate things.

    If donation dont count, i have a cunning plan but ive yet to discuss it with the rest of admin.

    VVOC are members of VBOA are they not? The only paying members on there are Premium Members.

    We could do the same and leave it entirely optional.

    Thats true alex, in fact VVOC are only allowed to have paying premium members on the display. Having a 'premium' scheme is something we looked into but ruled out as we feel its too early for us to start a paying membership scheme and attached benefits

    I agree that the site should stay free, but if someone's prepared to 'donate' to the up-keep of the site then would giving them a 'Premium Member' status allow us to become a member of VBOA.

    It's only one meeting anyway, and we can always getacrash like we did last year anyway.

    just to let everyone know, all the travel lodges etc in a 15m radius of billing are all fully booked.

    I have managed to get in at Overstone Park Resort Hotel which is about 3-4 miles from billing. They still have some spare rooms (£55 for a double).

    VBOA and Billing are quite tight on this - Astra Sport have got round this before by getting in under VXSCC or any means possible - then Hijacking an unclaimed area of land and calling it our own
