      I am surprised at this decision.

      I take it there was to many complaints about Market Harbourgh?

      Paul, can you explain the reason for going back to Billing?

        Made my year yesterday when that news was brought to my attention! Next year was looking quiet bad for decent shows, then all of a sudden everything’s looking so much better

          May just go if it’s billing, and PVS if it’s not at Santa Pod

            The overall consensuses from the VBOA committee is the venue isn't suitable and the overall numbers from all clubs looks around 30%+ would not attended while at MH. The vote fell as follows:

            Votes for market Harborough 7
            Votes for stonham barns 0
            Votes for billing 16
            Abstain 1*

            *I abstained due to the following reasons
            MH - I think it has legs but the relationships is strained and some of the stuff I have read and witnessed at the show makes me question if it cam be fixed. I don't want to expand on this so please don't ask
            Billing - Backward step in my view plus the 'show areas' are reduced.
            Stonham Barns - Purely on location.

            The fact is that its billing next year, things will be different to how they where in 2016. There will be a pole going up shortly that will be submitted to the VBOA.

                  Hope it lives up to everyone's expectations.

                  I haven't voted in the poll as I feel as a non camper it doesn't really matter which one wins,
                  but having had a look at the two options, I'm thinking about giving it a miss next year, first time in the last 24 years.

                          When are we going to get more details as it seems other clubs are better informed?
                          eg.

                          Shelduck 1 and 2 for show area. No camping on display area. Cars removed at night.

                          Camping booked direct with Billing. Discount code available only if booking 2 nights £23 per night or £33 with electric. Discount on pods/statics. Day visitors £10 per car.

                          No security. General public can camp anywhere.

                          Option 2

                          VBOA book the whole site paying a lump sum £35K

                          Billing provide site security / outside bar / first aid / show ground preperation / promote the show.

                          Clubs buy area off the VBOA. So for a 40 car stand it would cost our club £1600 which would be payable asap!

                        Well, I thought Market Harbourgh was getting better, with the added bonus of no duck poo to avoid.

                        The smaller area in option 2, which I see is winning the poll, will probably mean stands being tight on space. I liked the spread out layout of Billing past.
                        Even though I haven't sold parts from the back of my car, it was always good to see people doing it.

                        Still might go, just to see Louise

                          Thanks for your feedback Robert Millar

                          I along with others spent weeks working on the layout for this years HM show, I believe it made a great foundation for the future there, but the vote has fallen the way it has so all I can do is suck it up and work on next years.

                          To put area into context, we used around 29 acres at MH, with option 2 at billing we get around 27 acres. We will be closer together than billing of past but should be similar to MH.
