Hi all,

The full programme is now completed and will be posted up shortly.

There is something for everyone all through the week with huge amounts of non hovercraft stuff for families to do during half term and really great camping discount rates for those who want to make it their May holiday.

A 10,000 firework display is just one of lots of new fresh and different things to do to make this a real holiday, not just a geeky hovercraft anorak event. We have set out to provide alternatives for those who want a break from hovercraft as well as from work.
white water rafting, sailing, water skiing, cycle tours and childrens dragon boat racing are just some of the special features we have in store for you!

We are hoping to welcome freinds from the USA and India as well as our European partners who we are hoping will try to come along to the UK round to warm up for the main event - and show some of us how to really get it on out there on the circuit!
It's a great new circuit with exiting fast water straights, land transitions and challenging adverse camber turns.
In brief, the racing contains round 4 of the UK champs, a WHF endurance race over 2 days (7th and 8th), the opportinity for anyone to try to set a world speed record for their class of craft, also on the 7th and 8th, and the big event of the year for us all in the UK - the honour of being allowed to present a round of the EHF calender.

There will be two evenings of European celebrations - a beer festival on Friday 8th featuring continental lagers and wines and entertainment. Then on the 9th a very special BBQ event with a huge blues rock band who are ranked this year as the best british band on the scene.

There will be a site pub "the hovverinn" open nearly all hours! and they are running some special evenings during the week.
We will be looking for members to be on parade for an event on Monday 4th in the early evening at our location where 20,000 spectators are antisipated where we can promote ourselves with both static and mobile demonstrations. We want to use this demonstration to promote the EHF event and I'm sure you will all help us with this.

Once the programme has final approval from the HCGB we will go live with the whole show.

your gonna just love it!!!!!!!!!!!!! come along and thrill the crowds!
