VBOA 2017 Billing 2016 Report Billing 2015 Report Billing 2014 Report Billing 2013 Report Billing 2012 Report Billing 2011 Report Billing 2010 Report What an event Billing turned out to be - we had a fantastic line up of cars on the stand, we had some new member’s making their first trip to Billing as well as the regulars in attendance. We also had several member’s who travelled long distance to be with us, from Peter Docherty coming from Ireland to the Ruby Runner’s who had travelled all the way from one end of Britain to the other before coming to Billing. Kevin Bricknall once again did the Club and VBOA proud with his interview on BBC Radio Northampton. It was also very pleasing for me to see the Club Chairman with Chalkie the Cavalier (who was making his first ever appearance at Billing) and Vince’s first outing to Billing since 2003. This year the auction had some very special prizes raining from a new Playstation 3 and iPod Nano (which was very kindly donated by Mark and Gillian Sweetman) as well as other prizes from members, we really did the club proud with the auction which was held by Marilyn and Colin Scott who I would like to once again to thank for doing this for me. We had the largest turnout of Club cars on Friday - this almost confused me with what day it was considering the stand was so busy. There are so many members I would like to thank but if I thank you all personally I would take up the whole newsletter. So, it just leaves me to say a massive “thank you” to everyone who took part in this event and made the stand so special with banners and flags etc. One thing I must mention thoiugh - the Club won a very special award from the VBOA; we voted for John Corbett’s immaculate Cavalier Mk3 for the Chairman’s Cup and I am proud to say John Corbett won his category of Organiser’s Cup, this was covered by John Burgess from Classic Car Buyer. We managed to recruit 4 new member’s at Billing 2015; a special mention to Beth Watt for doing all the administration for this full sign-up procedure to happen on the day. All the best Richard Watt (352) Best in Show Winners from our own Club judging were the following: Marylin Scott Cavalier Mk1 STS 155S Saloon Colin Scott Cavalier Mk1 RSF 388P Coupe Steve Fordham Cavalier Mk1 AKU 43T Sports Hatch Keith Richardson Cavalier Mk2 A538 GBF Saloon John Jones Cavalier Mk2 C183 UHO Estate Phil Scaife Cavalier Mk3 G499 SWV Saloon Claire Wright Cavalier Mk3 G936 GNV Hatchback Mark Sweetman Chevette CUY 851W Hatchback Paul Ellson Chevette RCA 597V Saloon Karl Hobbs Chevette EHJ 504X Estate Kevin Bricknall Opel Manta D820 LNM Hatchback John Corbett Astra Mk3 J261 PLJ Best Guest Marie Wilcox Cavalier Mk1 OMY 247W Besy Lady Driver/Owner Steve Fordham Cavalier Mk1 AKU 43T Mr Billing’s Choice We should also mention that the Bob Watt Memorial Award is usually presented at Billing but an exception was made this year as it was awarded to Jane Miller who cannot travel to Billing. This was awarded earlier in the year on the White Griffin Run. But will be back to it’s usual Billing slot next year.
