Visa 40th Anniversary!

Post by Six-cylinder » 16 Jan 2018, 15:52

2018 is the 40th Anniversary for the Visa and we are going to celebrate that on 8/9 September 2018 in the UK.

The plan is gather many Visas together at the Chevrons Rally, Little Horwood near Milton Keynes, MK17 0PF.

We intend to arrange a Visa run, out to a place of interest and there will be lots of other Visa-themed activities.

It is a fantastic site for a weekend event, with plenty of parking, an indoor hall, modern showers and a kitchen, allowing drinks to be served throughout the weekend and hot food to be offered.

While this is a delightful rural setting you are only 3 miles away from food shops and takeaways. There are a variety of hotels within 20 minutes drive of the Show ground.

There is on site camping on Friday-Saturday-Sunday nights. I can provide free camping also, for any Visa owners who want to make a longer trip of it, just 3 miles from the Rally field.

If you live outside of the UK, we will be delighted to see you. I live locally, so can offer help and advice with attending the event.

If your Visa does not run, then bring it on a trailer. I may have to do that with one of mine!

Please reserve a place in your 2018 diary and bring your Visa along to this, its biggest UK gathering for many years!

Hmm, 8 months is a long time to try and sweeten up The Boss for a weekend camping trip... Doubt it'd be in a Visa sadly but would be nice to attend a rally or two in one Xantia or another. Will have to do some research and see what she says ;)
