Busfest 2012 aka Vanfest

Post by Admin on Tue Mar 20, 2012 2:14 am

(Taken from the sugestions section)

Just to kick things off; (slightly biassed here Wink ), but one event that all California Owners should consider going to is BUSFEST.

Info on this event, (which until this year used to be called Vanfest), is available here; www.busfest.org

There is also a facebook page BUSFEST12

If we can get a good group together (soonish) I can/could arrange for an exclusive camping area for California Forum.

If anyone is interested in attending this event and wants to camp at the show then Simon can sort an area out for a cali group.

Someone would need to become an organiser. details were posted but I managed to delete them while trying to move them to the new section....I told you I wasn't very good at this!!! :-(

Hi Bluecali.

Did you post under Simon? If so while trying to move the items to this new section cutting and pasting ( as per Simons suggestion) I managed to delete 2 posts. No one is trying to play God, just human error im afraid :-)

BUSFEST UPDATE – JUNE 2012

Just a quick reminder that there are now just FOUR WEEKS LEFT to book your camping for this years BUSFEST

BUSFEST is the new name for the annual VANFESTIVAL event held at the Three Counties Showground over the weekend of 7-9 SEPTEMBER.

The camping areas are filling up fast.

This is a reminder that there are now JUST 4 WEEKS left to book your camping at this year’s event

So I urge you, that if you really do want to come to the event & (not end up at our off site Welland Camp) then you need to get your camping bookings in as soon as possible.

We are still aiming to close our Advance Booking systems at the end of JULY

So far the event season this year has been very hard (and wet) for everyone (ourselves included).

We have been to a few and endured some really horrendous conditions (and that’s not just inside our promo stand after the Crew Curry!).

Many events this have of course been cancelled or postponed, but we can tell you is that the worst weather (by a long chalk) was during our Event Promotion earlier this month at the Three Counties Show which is held at the Malvern Showground (same as Busfest).

Conditions were on a par to what we had at the beginning our 2008 event at the same showground BUT went on right through the weekend. (until of course, it was time to pack up).

However, what we can tell you is that at no time was there any talk of the show being cancelled & once a bit (lots) of straw had been distributed the show went on (almost as normal).

These conditions were endurable because the Showground has the facilities (fixed buildings, roadways and drainage) to cope with it.

Regardless of what weather is forecast you can be sure that the BUSFEST event will go on.

We can also promise you that we will have a thriving trade area and a very extensive entertainment programme to keep you all occupied throughout the weekend.

We have also actually been told by our local Farming (and weather forecasting expert) that………………………..


SUMMER STARTS IN SEPTEMBER

So I urge you, that if you really do want to come to the event and camp on or around the site & (not end up at our off site Welland Camp) then you need to get your camping bookings in as soon as possible.
