Festival of the Unexceptional 2019 - free camping and free breakfast available!

Recommended Posts

All my cars are a bit too new yet a bit too old and a bit too rough anyway to look either like a modern daily, a cla**ic or FOTU fodder. Presumably there is a general car park where These mongrels park?

 There was last year, but as people have said, venue change. You could come to the field of dreams and get a lift in with someone that way though. Last year Brodders couldn't get parking, left his 75 on a verge with a notice saying it'd broken down, then flagged me down for a lift in because he recognised my car!

Great- I’ll do that

To be fair it was a plausible note to see in the window of an abandoned Rover.

It's probably still in the glove compartment, so will likely be put to use again this year if the Omega doesn't make the cut.

I’m now planning to come to this... just need to decide which car to bring. 2CV or Saab...?

 

Are they fussy about checking reg numbers if I buy something else between now and then?

A-Frame 2CV with Saab. Hire attractive person to drive other vehicle and look like one of life’s winners?

I'm thinking of staying at Premier Inn in Tring on the way up, as journey 130 miles for me each way. I know that's 'pint of milk' distance for are Scottishshire folk, but it will also be nice to arrive with all my fluids topped-up.

Maxi booked into general classic parking but may end up in the special class for cars with significant anniversaries instead :)

 

Don't worry about changing cars between now and then - it's happened before and Hagerty said to just email them so they can change the reg on your booking.

Finding a hotel closer to Buckingham means you can visit the campers and gathers at the  Field of Dreams!

There is clearly a glitch in the website codering   8)

 

I have been able to book 8 people in, across 4 cars, all in my name.

 

2 on chod ticket 1 for the Safrane

2 on chod ticket 2 for the Princess

2 on spectator ticket 1

2 on spectator ticket 2

 

The flaw in all this is I don't have enough friends.  And only one pair of legs to do the pedals with.

      Yo! I've been nominated (many times) to organise a shitefest next year, considering i can't even organise my own life then this could be a challenge but I'm happy to try and arrange something if there enough interest?.
      I've made enquiries at the Rose pub where we hold our East Coast Retro car meets on in Shotley near Ipswich, Suffolk (IP9 1NL) and she's more than happy for us to use the field over weekend for £5 per person per night if sleeping over, there are toilet facilities and the pub does good grub plus they have a large room for us to have a meal or maybe a quiz on the Saturday night?.
      I've also spoken to a friend who's a volunteer at the Ipswich Transport Museum and even though the museum is closed to the public on a Saturday he can't see no reason why we can't have the museum to ourselves for a private tour around and even the possibility of a bus ride on one of their historic buses which I'm sure a few on here would really enjoy.
      Now it's obviously early days yet but what i need to know roughly is how many of you shitters be interested in this and i need to give the pub a date as their field is getting booked up so that we can secure for our chosen weekend.

      While I’m feeling sociable and non stressed. Does anyone fancy meeting up at Staplefield on the 3rd November to watch the veteran car rally? The pub does a good bbq breakfast.

      I have mentioned this to a few shiters over the year and there seems to be some interest so I thought I would make it happen. It also gets the date into the AS Calendar before anything else gets organised for the same weekend.
      The location is half way between Lemans and Tours in Sarthe, Pays de Loire, France, approx 300 miles and 5 hours from Calais, or 120 miles and 2.5 hours from Caen. The date of 3-5 July is the Lemans Classic weekend, where there are great cars on track (where else will you see pre-war Bentleys power sliding and GT40s with glowing brake discs at night) and the car park is probably the biggest and best classic car show in Europe. The AS site is about 25 mins drive from the circuit, with easy access.
      The format is basically whatever you want it to be. The AS base will be at my place in France that a few shiters have visited. I am afraid the bedrooms are already booked, but there is 6 acres of level camping ground,  We will be travelling down from West Sussex via the tunnel and a combination of peage and back roads in a convoy of classics. You are welcome to join the convoy at any point or meet at the venue. We will travel down probably Thursday 2nd and most will return Monday 6th, but some will stay on for a week or two and you are welcome to stay on if you wish. The nearest bar is about 1km away, but 3km away is the famous "Hotel de France" in La Chatre sur le Loir (google it). You do not have to attend the Lemans Classic, if you would rather sit and drink beer (hopefully in the sun) that is fine.
      It will be up to the individuals to organise ferry/tunnel etc and getting there, I can provide camping ground, bogs, showers and a fridge for the beer. No commitment required especially at this stage, If you fancy a foreign trip with your chod, put your name down on the list. Nearer the time those still interested will get further details and the hidden location by PM. If anyone would prefer a B&B obviously they are in high demand around the classic, but I have a few contacts and could possibly find a room or two, but they would need to be booked fairly soon. No booking for camping is required.
      To give you an idea, whilst nothing is yet confirmed, the convoy down is likely to include a Gordon Keeble, a Rolls Royce 20/25, a Westfield, a Mk2 Jag and a Fiesta 1100. It will not be a fast convoy......
      Oooh La La, I'll help destroy the French wine lake
