    Carfest South 2017

    Jim & Monkey boy,

    I have sent you both a PM concerning this years Carfest.

    Due to my daughter Lulu being successful with her audition for the English Youth Ballet, & the timing of their performances the Bushboy Clan will be unable to attend Carfest South 2017.

    When I have more information to share I will add to this post.

    Cheers

    Bushboy

    The Organisers have responded & said they would be delighted to have Club Nova front up again.

    They are still finalising the format for this year & when the details have been sorted they will release the application forms.

    Originally Carfest started with 7 cars & that was reduced last year to 5. If no more diets are applied then it will be 5 car again this year.

    Watch this space.

    Thanks for the update. Be interesting to see how much it is this year as the price is going up. Saying that its still a great show to attend and if you were to buy tickets to see all those bands in the evening it would cost a lot more.

    There has been a change of responsibilities at Brandsevents & I am now dealing with Anne. Today I received confirmation of the costs for the club display this year.

    The Club Site will cost £650 plus VAT. (£780 by my calculator)
    Assuming that the 5 Club Nova Car owners that sign up will spend all 3 days at the venue it will cost £150 per car. With this you get to have your car on display & full use of the attractions provided for two persons. Childrens bands are £12 each but she did not say if that was per day or for the entire event.

    Club Camping pitches of 6m X 9m (reputedly to be big enough for two four person tents) are available for £150 plus VAT, £200 plus VAT if you want Electricity.

    I need a firm commitment as soon as possible and it is a first come first in (Jim & Monkey Boy have already shown an interest & pencilled in) with preference given to members that can front up with a NOVA.

    Time to decide.

    Cheers

    Bushboy

    Last Chance

    This is your opportunity to have your car & yourself at Carfest South this year.

    I have available a 1 car driver only ticket available for Saturday August 26th. I will be attending on this day but the Mrs and Lulu will otherwise engaged in ballet in Dartford.

    If your interest & can get your car to Laverstock Park very early in the morning then PM me. There is a restriction on when you can remove your car from the site. If you don't mind sharing a caravan with me then you can also spend the night & enjoy the music stage.

    What a scorcher.

    Club Nova certainly felt the heat this weekend at Laverstock Park.

    4 Novas on the Friday (Ces&Rose, myself, Tim&Lin, and Ray/Gary in the Red one) - sadly Ray's blue Nova couldn't get indicators working, so we were 1 car down.

    4 Novas on the Sat and Sunday (Ces&Rose, myself, Tim&Lin, Bushboy) and Colin's Westfield.

    We were swamped on the stand all weekend with hundreds of people wanting to learn about the cars. We really did struggle to break away from the stand and at one point I stopped to see everyone around me talking to people about the cars - the interest was overwhelming.

    A great weekend.

    Not gone through all the pictures yet, and took less than usual, but will sort them in time.

    For now - the calm set up shot on Day 1

    Calm before the storm - 4 Nova's ready and waiting on day 1.jpg

    And the weary team still smiling on Sunday

    They survived - Sunday night and the Nova team still manage a smile after a hectic hot weekend.jpg


    A great show, and big thanks to all who attended and helped entertain Martha!
    All the best,

    Love the group photo Jim.

    It certainly was a great weekend, I think the best one to date and we've attended many now.

    As Jim says the public interest in the Nova was amazing, so many people wanted to know about them, all ages too. Great to see the younger generation so excited about the cars and the older guys remembering them from their childhood.

    Thanks to all who attended, to Bushboy for organising it plus for allowing me to bring my Westfield along again this year.
