Airhead Event Lincoln UK 13-15th July 2018

Postby IanB » Fri Oct 13, 2017 1:34 pm

I think word is getting around now, but haven't seen mention here, so:

The Airhead e-zine and the associated Airhead Fellowship are planning a one-off Event for all riders of air-cooled boxers from earliest times to final production (which I think was 1995). All riders of and enthusiasts for Airheads are welcome, but places are already filling up, so please don't hang around. More details here:

Website and access to booking form: http://www.theairhead.co.uk/the_airhead_event_2018.html
Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/events/1754552 ... null%22%7D

We hope to see as many of you there as possible!

I'm not seeing any provision for camping on the entry form, just B&B and motorhome parking.

Isn't it supposed to be a rally?

I read it differently on the flyer

THE EVENT - 'THE AIRHEAD EVENT' - THE LARGEST GATHERING OF VINTAGE AND CLASSIC BIKES PLUS RIDERS EVER HELD IN THE U.K.

This isn't just a Rally; it isn't just a Show: it's an Event - The Airhead Event. And it will be unmissable for anyone who appreciates the older, air-cooled bikes that established BMW's reputation for quality engineering, superb design and long-legged performance.
If you like Rallies, then you'll like this event, with rides outs, socialising, quizzes and prizes
If you like Bike Shows then you'll like this event, with the largest display of vintage and classic BMW's ever - plus the usual vendors and trade stands.
Perhaps the College are not keen on having to provide all the facilities required for tent camping. Certainly the Airhead Fellowship doesn't have the funds available to provide them. Our £10 annual membership subscription goes direct to the Air Ambulance.
I still amazed that Peter has managed to secure the location in the way he has, probably from his own resources up to now.

Peter's comment from Facebook:

"Motorhomes and caravans can park up in the college car park but tents aren't allowed. If anyone actually LIKES being uncomfortable in a tent then there are two good campsites equidistant from the college."

Whilst I don't imply any disrespect, I'd be riding my bike there if I went, it being the middle of summer and all that. I could book a room, yes, and I do appreciate it's all at cost; but that pushes the price up beyond my budget. Shame, it looks like being a good do.

I appreciate more than most having been a pensioner for 26 years, that everyone has to prioritise their needs against their wants especially over hobbies etc.
I also know direct from speaking with Peter that he tried a total of 7 venues altogether trying to find a suitable location to cover all types of accommodation.
I'm sorry that you may not be there.

As i said Bill no disrespect intended. I was president of HDRCGB for three years and have considerable experience in setting up rallies and events, including our 60th anniversary rally which attracted over a thousand people; it is no easy task and pleasing eveyone is impossible.

Edit; it's also something i swore I'd never do again so please don't be tempted to ask! :grin:
