2017 season

Post by John TC on Mon Aug 29 2016, 10:53

Hi All, 
September is always an exciting month with lots going on. I know there is a lot of info here, but bear with me.
This month big event is club camping in Crediton, Devon prior to Bus fest and then to cap off the summer season we have been invited to join and make our presence felt in a club campout weekend and BBQ at Thruxton, with Beresford Bodytech.

Club meet this Friday - 2nd Sept Chalkhill Blue from 7pm for meet, greet & eat
Last month's club meet was a huge success with several new members and over 25 people there. A repeat performance would be fun. Are you planning to come. Please reply by forum, Facebook, or email for numbers.

VW Action 2nd-4th Sept
We are not going to Action as a club this year, but there is some talk of a Saturday day out to the show and to watch the night racing. Anyone interested? Let us know and we will organise a convoy.

Devon camping with hosts Jackie & Dave (thanks for having us down) - Tues 6th Sept- Friday 9th Sept in Crediton Devon
Jackie & Dave have offered a camping area in their orchard for a little pre Busfest soirée. No doubt much fun anticipated with beers & SC.......Devon Drive outs, Devon cream teas and all things Devon! This is specifically RSVP as numbers limited & to be known in advance.

BusFest - Fri 9th - 11th Sept - Three Counties show ground @ the Malvern's 
Bus fest is always awesome. It is one of the events where we get both the Coleman shelters out, huge crowd, lots of fun and general merriment. It's the last opportunity to buy all your spares for your winter projects. BusFest has the largest collection of Traders, VW tat, and parts in the world! 
As a show it's very much back to full strength and lots of us have enjoyed it again in the last few years. It's back to being a must do show.  We are camping in the SSVC invite only orchard. Those with tickets, if you want to come and camp with us please let us know as you need to be signed in with an SSVC member. If you are coming for the day, come and say Hi. We will be in the SSVC special display between the Tin sheds opposite the Stockmans cafe (the best place at the show to eat)

Thruxton campout & club BBQ 24th September with Beresford Bodytech
Club camp out and BBQ weekends have always been well liked. We hope this one will be popular and a cool way to round off the summer season. We've kept it local for a lot of you so that you can support it for the day, evening or weekend. Please support this and we could make it an annual season closing event.

Some of you (inc Carl & I) have got to know the guys at Beresford Bodytech and friends pretty well. Paul & John are currently working on welding, fabrication & paint for our bus - doing an amazing job to restore it. They are based in Andover and some of you have discussed projects with them and / or will have met them at last month's club night already. 
They are organising and have asked us to promote, support and join in with a local club campout and BBQ at Thruxton circuit camping.

The club oil drum BBQ will make its 3rd appearance of the year and food details will follow. I will share camping and BBQ arrangements on email, Facebook and forum next week. Again, numbers are required for this too so please check your diaries one and all.

HO17, Germany - http://www.uraltkaefer.de
Quite a few of you have already been asking about dates and plans for the incredible, every four year European trip to Hessich Oldendorf in Germany and then on to the factories in Wolfsberg and Hannover. We can then possibly take in EBI - Euro Bugin the following weekend  for those that want to make it a 10 day holiday.

The suggested [size=15]leave date is Weds 21st June[/size]
[size=15]HO17 Show dates are 23rd to 25th June[/size]

European Bug In - Friday 30th June to Sunday 2nd July - http://www.europeanbugin.com
A firm European favourite, two shows on subsequent weekends and the European / Belgian drag racing event 

And then back for the Sunday afternoon ferry on the 2nd July. 
A separate email on this June 2017 European  trip will follow with much more to come. 
Obviously, there will be people who only do Hessich and / or EBI and we will try to help those of you that haven't been with any combinations. The huge advantage of making it for the duration is the factories and the holiday away.

Let us know what you are planning. Tentative plans and numbers are needed for all this and we will put posts on Facebook and Forum early this week.
See you all soon
