Booked my BX in today as we are in Yorkshire that week on holiday :D .

The 'statistics' chart is still showing only 28 BXs attending!

I wouldn't read too much into those stats. Last time we counted up who was taking a BX from here, we where counting over 30 and the site said only 11 where booked. It might just be lagging behind real time.

I'd suspect that the BX will be the second most represented vehicle after the 2CV!

I'm probably going - although holiday plans may scupper that - and if I do it'll definitely be in a BX.

Well, I am 90% sure I'll attend so no need to panic just yet, but I do owe the family a holiday this summer. However, I will try to find a suitable place prior to the event!

And Liz isn't let's say, 'convinced' about a taking a long-overdue two weeks in Yorkshire :lol: :roll:

Hasn't she been watching the adverts? Now is the best time for a stay-cation, apparently!

I am planning on going.

So you can add one more BX to that list.

+1 also - finally got around to booking/paying today.

Tent has not been used for ... years. Must unpack it and see if I can remember how to put it up.

Pffft. It's a beautiful part of the world! I'd gladly spend two weeks there if I could. You don't have to spend the entire rally time actually at the rally. I plan some moor/dale exploring at the very least.

We know Yorkshire quite well, as my folks lived there. Trouble is it's North. :wink: :lol:

I should think I'll be able to work it out so I'll be going to the ICCCR after two weeks in the Loire Valley.

You want them back after he's eaten them?

But of course, plus the returnable deposit!
