Default Who misses the NBO and would like a reunion ?

Most of you can remember the NBO which I ran for 11 successful years

We had regular numbers when I ran it of between 320-415 cars every year

If I get another interest between now and April

The NBO reunion will happen

Sunday 2 July 2017



If you don't have a Subaru anymore and have moved onto a new marque it doesnt matter
You will still be welcome

The cars have maybe changed but the hundreds of people that used to love the NBO concept haven't

Post your comments on hear so I can guage if the

NBO reunion could happen

The NBO name is owned by Cumbrian Scoobs so please stop using it . The NBO is our IP under UK law . Please stop trying to confuse people.

Call the event by its proper name - = Cumbrian Auto Show.


The NBO is now officially Scoobyfest UK. So to stop confusion and clears things up officially.

SUNDAY 2nd July 2017 is the date for your diary folks :



More info. to follow soon

Thank You . I hope that stops people thinking its a Subaru event or a Cumbrian Scoobs event. Its not.

Best of luck with the BSPOC stand at the Cumbria Auto Show Lordy , I hope you win again !.

NBO memories is the Facebook page

Everyone in the Subaru community recognised me as the NBO chairman and man behind the vision for 11 years which I set up in January 2003 in the dun cow pub Newcastle .

Take me to court for trying to "steal" the NBO name
All you have is the website registered by Cumbrian scoobs

I'm not trying to confuse anyone As everyone knows I'm not associated with Cumbrian scoobs anymore despite being the founder member in January 2001 untill my departure in 2013 .

I'm just inviting lots of my former friends to a potential meeting 130 miles away from an event in Yorkshire so will atract a different market so will not effect an event known as
Scoobyfest which is name copied from an event is south Africa .

It will be intersting to see if anyone attends the events

How can you copyright 3 letters
Those 3 letters are synonymous with the op so dont see an issue personally, a bit like people saying you can't start a Facebook group with that name etc...petty Internet power struggles lol

if the NBO is 'Officially' scoobyfest now...that means the NBO doesn't exist surely?

Pretty sure no one can claim to own the Intellectual Property of parking some cars in a field.

NBO went stale a couple of years before I stopped going , too much emphasis on oversized club stands and polishing competitions.

I don't miss the event, miss catching up with friends there though.
