As we informed you at the Christmas meal, Lara Carnell, Chris Jones and myself were to arrange a meeting with Steve Munn at Beaulieu to discuss the possibility of returning to Beaulieu for our Summer Show. I can tell you it was a promising meeting. The outcome was a quote from Steve Munn was ‘we would rather have Victory Wheelers on board than not have you’.
There are still much to be discussed but in principal the following presents no problem from both sides:
- The show will be branded as Beaulieu in conjunction with Victory Wheelers over the weekend of 14-16thth June 2013 (to include Fathers Day).
- The weekend will be open to campers at 9.00am on Friday and close on Sunday evening.
- Saturday entertainment will be a DJ on Friday and a Band on the Saturday, these are already booked as part of Beaulieu’s event.
- Exhibitor stand space will be sold as a measured space to put in what they want (no extras to park a Van/Trailor)
- There will be camping, and a Marquee as well as the Brabazon.
There obviously needs to be further discussions and a comprehensive contract but we now have the blessing of the Wheelers Committee, and the club were informed at last night meeting of our decision.
The show as you know is also a Bike Show which worked well last year for them but by their own admission the car show was not a success.
We will organise the customary Saturday Cruise and be involved at the Sunday Drive in. Remember it is a Beaulieu show in conjunction with the Bikers and us the Victory Wheelers.
I am sure you may well have questions which you can discuss with me or a member of the committee. More to follow on this as things develop.
This annual show will take place on Sunday 19th May at the Funland on Hayling Island. Fliers are available so please help distribute. Our chosen 2013 charity with Pam and family from Hanna’s Holiday Home appeal will in attendance. More to come on this.
We have been offered some sales space again at Wheels Day, put it in your diary, more to follow Good Friday March 29th 2013.
New Club Meeting Place
The Committee has decided that because of the very poor parking at The Railway Inn that has not improved as promised, we shall be looking for a new venue. If any member has any suggestions on this as to where we might go please contact me or the committee.
This years membership is now overdue so please get in touch with Pete Farmer if you have not done this yet.
The committee are looking at 2 other car shows in the coming season, one might well be a Charity Night in Bournemouth for the Hanna Appeal, with some Burlesque from Victoria and co, and Annie Young singing. Both have offered to do this free of charge. More to come on this.
The second show might take place on Saturday the 1st June 2013 teaming up with South Coast Rock and Roll for a rock and roll evening after the car show. This is in the early stages of discussion.
Any ideas that you might have for other events please talk to me or the committee.
Well that is it for now, remember to tell me about things to put in the newsletter, things for sale, help you need etc.
