Idea for MK re: parking/setting up camp
« on: August 01, 2015, 12:06 AM »
I posted up something very similar to this last year. Mods/admin, please feel free to remove or advise on edits if you feel it's required.

With MK approaching, most regulars know the usual way of arranging ourselves is to form a circle of cars/vans/tents around the helipad area, therefore creating a space where people can walk/cycle around  but keeping the middle free. As MK has become so popular, there is no longer enough room at the helipad field for us all, so I suggest that those in the next field try to arrange themselves in orderly rows, rather than parking up in random places. With a bit of thought (and consideration for others), it makes for a much more better layout, and also allows easy vehicle access for health & safety reasons.


 Any comments/suggestions welcome

The only issue is that last year the non helipad area was a parking lot (completely full of cars). If everyone parked around the edge and left the middle open there simply wouldnt be enough space for everyone to park / camp / display. It didnt help that the guy from the MX track went bananas every time a car parked on "his land".

It might work however if the non helipad area had 2 rows of cars in the middle? That would make space for a few more cars, but Im still not sure it would be enough space?

Just a thought.  :daumenhoch:

Maybe the second field could be arranged In rows inside a perimeter line of cars a bit like a car boot? That way it's easier to get around and see what people have out on display. I thought the second field got slightly overlooked last year and there were some cracking builds in there  :daumenhoch:

Agreed, I we just expect everyone to do it of their own accord. However, if some bunting was put up the night before guiding where people  are expected to park I don't see why it cant work? It will take showing people what is expected though. It wont just happen by chance.

Anyone that's camped at MK before and Forum members that will read this thread will probably do their best to try and pitch up with consideration from others.

But, there will be a load of sheeple, probably off various FB groups that will rock up, not giving a shite to the site supporters, and just put their camp wherever.

As soon as Sean or Rob open that gate at 7am on Saturday, it will be a free for all.

Either one of the days Clint. I don't think I can get both off mate  :-\   I am still waiting to see the postings at work.

Terry if you make it up mate, make sure you come and say hello as it's long overdue :coolsmiley:

I'll be on the ramps with the rest of the usual suspects on Saturday and probably sat in Animal's MRD tent Sunday nursing the mutha of all hangovers as usual :2funny:

Thanks for posting this up Andy...
I totally agree the "other field" was a total shambles last year and as others have already written many top builds and items for sale were totally overlooked.
