I don't think so and there's nothing about this years event on the SOC website (yet?).

However there is a page on Facebook.

I've just been on the owners club site, to register for SAABFest, but the link to the booking page doesn't work.... :(

- Up and running now, apparently site maintenance has been going on.

I've now registered, and paid £60 for camping Friday and Saturday, including passes (Quote).

Does any one know if that includes the Friday and Saturday evening meals?

Last year at Prescott Hill I managed not to book my meals, and only got fed because Redders had some "No Show" meal vouchers.
I felt a bit "Silly".....

I don't think that there have as yet been any mention of meals, Andy. I think I read somewhere that it was to be published in the next edition of Driver. (May/June)
