For full details either go to the VBOA website www.vboa.org.uk under Events or to www.vauxhallclub.nl, click Agenda and select the 2012 International tab and then the English version if your Dutch is a bit shaky.
As usual, the VBOA Treasurer Anne Norris will collect entry fees from the UK entrants and pass it to our Dutch friends by the due date of February 1st, saving individuals the exhorbitant eletronic transfer fees charged by those cuddly bankers. Firstly you should send an e-mail to email@example.com saying that you are going on the event as it is a first come first served situation regarding hotel space. Once accepted send, at today's exchange rate, a cheque to Anne for £473 for a couple sharing a double room and £340 for a single room by January 15th at the latest.If the exchange rate goes dramatically either way in the intervening period adjustments will have to be made at the time.
Anne's address is:
31 Dobbins Lane, Wendover, Aylesbury, Bucks. HP22 6DH. Tel. 01296-622217.
In terms of ferries, the most direct route is Harwich to Hook of Holland, leaving a 220km run to the start, mostly on motorways
