June 15th/16th 

The 'Billing' meet is being held on 15th/16th June (as far as I know).
Billing Aquadrome is near Northampton not far from Milton Keynes, Just off the M1.
There is a website.
Camping is permitted at a cost of around £12 per night.
Entrance on the day is around £7.
If its anything like last year their will be plenty of retail opportunities to purchase various Chopper goodies.
Please contact Paul Frost for more details.

Gary L. (Gazwaz)

Re: Billing
For anyone who can't go camping (because there misses won't let them) There is a hotel on site as well. I'm booked in with family & Vince is, on his own. So there's no excuse. Of course I'd rather be with the Chopper boys (& Girls) but I have to put up with a warm dry Hotel room with room service & mini bar, just to keep my woman happy.
Cocktails & canapťs will be at 8 o'clock black tie & big dresses only;-)


Its also on the same time as the biggest American Car Show in the UK!!!
(Please contact Paul Frost for more details.)

Paul does not have tickets for 'Billing'. Basically you just turn up! Paul has (hopefully!) reserved us a field to pitch our tents and display our wares.
As I have mentioned, you pay about £12 quid to camp over night or £7 for the day. The entrance fee is 'standard' as Billing Aquadrome is a leasure park kind of place with lots to do.
Hope that helps???

PP : Paul Frost!

On the subject of the Billing meeting.... the £12 ( ish) camping fee is PER VEHICLE not per tent or per person... One van with 4 people still pays the same fee... it really is a bargain. Be there .
