Hi Guys & Girls

Its that time of the year again and to try and keep the initial thread small I am going to try and keep it a bit shorter this year and stick to the headlines, but there is a lot of info to give:


Please add your name below in thread if you are coming, what days you are coming, and if you are camping :-)


For those who has not been before, or want to see what a great weekend this is - PLEASE SEE OLD PICS AND DETAILS OF WHAT TO EXPECT HERE -       https://vwgolfmk1.org.uk/forum/index.php?page=topicview&id=national_2%2Fbristol-volksfest-2016

BVF 2017 video here - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OKt90GTRnog

So the headlines are :-)

The Show - An absolutely fantastic weekend show or even just to come along for a day, for full details please see the Bristol Volksfest Website -       Home

Dates - Fri 15th to Sun 17th June - People can come for the day, all 3 days with camping, 2 days and camping the Sat night etc or which ever combination they would like. If you could note below against your name what your intentions are that helps me with stand planning though, (i.e Sat day visitor, Sun day visitor, weekend camping etc)

Clubstand - As we support this event every year we have been asked to show in the main arena! this is great for us and great exposure for the club. The only limitation this does have is that to get on the club stand this year there will be,   Friday visitors must be on site by 8pm and  no car movement allowed between 08:30 and 16:00 on the Sat and Sun. I think this should be ok for the majority as generally most either camp on the Sat night (some Fri night to) or come as day visitors early, then leave after 16:00 anyway.


Tickets - Please    pre book tickets by the 15th May 2017. If they are not booked by then, they will not guarantee me a space for you on the club stand.

They have currently changed things this year in terms of numbers of discounted tickets, I am in discussions with them now to try and get more, as don't really think its fair or ideal.

We have:

12 Qty Mk1 Golf Owners Club - Display Camping Adult Weekend Ticket - Includes 1 Vehicle Pass -  Allocated at £35.00 each

12 Qty Mk1 Golf Owners Club - Extra Adult Weekend Ticket - Allocated at £35.00 each

So you buy the first one to get yourself and car in on club camping stand. Then the second ticket option above are for any passengers which are club camping but no car allowance (i.e passenger)

We will definitely have more than 12 cars needing camping tickets. Currently when these are gone you would need to revert down to the £40 Advance - VW Club Camping Adult Weekend Ticket - Includes 1 Vehicle Pass  ticket options shown in attached links and STATE MK1 GOLF OC WHEN YOU ORDER THEM but once I speak to them hopefully this will change

NEW LINK FOR TICKETS - https://register.weselltickets.uk/Events/35934/bristol-volksfest/Dates/51477/?showTicketTypeIds=45580,45581


** TICKETS FOR CLUB CAMPING MUST BE PURCHASED IN ADVANCE THIS YEAR **


For Day visitors - you use the same link above but choose " Advanced Saturday or Sunday Day Ticket" but please  STATE MK1 GOLF OC WHEN YOU ORDER THEM  if there is an option


This show in my opinion is a great show, it has got better and better year on year, and outside of the AGM and Malvern is one of my favourites . Also thanks to you guys, the numbers representing the club have got better and better each year and months after last year I have people commenting on how great the 2017 MK1 golf stand looked, so THANK YOU for that.

I have probably missed a few things as rushing a bit, the main thing is lets start getting some names down for

BRISTOL VOLSFEST 2018 !!


PS the venue location has changed from where it was up to 2015.  New venue address = Venue Address: Birches Farm, Long Ashton, BS41 9AG

PPS - As always I will do a   convoy in to the club stand on the Sat morning with all that want to meet, it will be 08:00 meet up close to the venue, leave by 08:15 to be parked on stand by 08:30, meeting point same as last tear -

SATURDAY MORNING CONVOY MEETING POINT 08:00  - "The Jubilee Inn", Main Road, Flax Bourton, BS48 3QX. - Its about a 5 min or so drive to the show site but there will be traffic leading up to the show site ,so we will be LEAVING MEETING POINT @ 08:15. We can then convoy in together and I can park everyone up on the sand.


I also hope to create a FACEBOOK EVENTS PAGE THIS YEAR - if I do link will be added here (but please add yourself to this main thread as this will be the master that is updated with numbers - https://www.facebook.com/events/208963182986085/


Cheers

Rich

JUST SPOTTED THIS ON WEBSITE !


BRISTOL VOLKSFEST
15, 16, 17 june 2018

After an epic 25th anniversary celebration and a mammoth move to a new venue, plans for BVF26 are already well under way.

The biggest change going forward is that weekend camping tickets will only be available in advance, tickets will not be available for purchase on the gate.

New for 2018:
- More fields. The farmers have kindly given us permission to use two more fields so that ALL camping and day visitor parking will be onsite (not across the road).
- More water points for campers.
- Tickets for weekend camping will only be available in advance.
- New entrance for pedestrians and day visitors
- More entertainment on Sunday

lhasadreams , thanks mate, I posted in National section, just wanted to pin at top so people can find it easy, as usually good amount of interest.

Such a pain Deva is on so close each year as could up the numbers by 20+ if everyone came :-)

list updated

Don't forget don't just say you are coming on Facebook event, I need you to post here so I can add you to the list.

mk1 daz depends on what you are looking for.

Sunday is the show and shine day,

 Saturday is a mixed day and also you benefit from grabbing a bit of the evening entertainment

There is plenty that camp on the Sat night if you are not local and wanted to camp

Cheers
