    So....the date for VanityBMW 2018 is confirmed as Sunday 22nd July. We put out a great turnout the last two years at what was an excellent and well organised event.


    I know @GazHyde will be arranging our attendance at the event itself (again).....however I'm putting together a little soirée beforehand(again).


    In 2016 and 2017 a few of us met up the day before and camped over whilst enjoying a little BBQ and beverage. This will be the third annual VanityBMW so it will also be the third annual pre-event camp and BBQ. The last two were really good so I'm going for three for three.


    I propose those who choose to, make a booking to camp at Roundhills camp site in the new forest and I'll arrange for a proper BBQ for us again. I have family down there and have sourced a huge split barrel BBQ as "I'll supply your heat, you supply your meat" and we'll get a good feed down us and possibly the occasional beverage!


    We're staying at Roundhills campsite which is on Beauleiu Road, Brockenhurst, SO42 7QL. From memory it costs around £10 per head so it's cheap! On arrival it's a case of checking in and driving through the gate until you see a spot you fancy and you throw a tent up. Very informal and very convenient when you're looking for a flat place where the car doesn't scrape the ground!


    Attendees will need to book their camping directly with the campsite which can be done online or over the phone. I won't be making a block booking for our group as there are no allocated pitches, it's a case of "turn up, tent up". I'll be arriving early (before midday) so just look for me....I'm easy to find!


    So....who's in?

    If you find somewhere local (and comfortable!) to stop Niall you'd still be very welcome to come by for the BBQ.

    Pity that Vanity BMW clashes with Silverstone classic this year.

    Mac, according to the Beaulieu website, Vanity BMW is on Sunday 22 July. Silverstone classic is 20 to 22 July. Hope i'm wrong!:thumbsup:

    I’ve just checked and you’re right! I’ll have to edit this post. Thanks for putting me right, that could’ve been embarrassing!

    I still have your air bed from last year, Niall.
    Note to myself, check the airbed does not leak before going camping, the ground can be quite hard.

    Ive done the last two of these and it's probably my favourite one of the year. You've made a good choice.
