There has to be a level of 'self policing' here i'm afraid.  On Sunday we are far too busy doing Show n shine reg and so on that we aren't able to point people in the right direction.  In fact that second field is technically the Motocross guys (i think) so we have to be a bit careful with how we spread ourselves.

Agree with all the comments here, it would be nice if everyone used a bit of common and park/pitch around the outside to begin with at least and hopefully the grass will be a bit shorter this year in the second field too..

Speaking as a second field 'veteran' (we arrived at 07.15 in each of the last couple of years to find the helipad already packed - what were we thinking arriving so late!!  :D ) it would be good to see a few more visitors checking out the builds in the second field this year...

Good point about visiting the second field.


This year we have go a few marshals helping out over the weekend (old members) who will be helping set up and so on so don't be surprised to see tents in the Helipad when you arrive.

Thanks for the info Rob and the thread bump Dan.  I've updated the design slightly, as you can see in my annotated map below.  We need to keep the access to the helipad and 2nd field clear at all times for health & safety reasons. Can people PLEASE park up/set up camp in rows - particularly in the 2nd field. Not only for health & safety, but to make the  :radbmxsmilie: MK experience as good as it can be for all those attending. By arranging ourselves in an organised fashion, it will encourage people to wander round and check out some of the amazing bike collections people bring to the event. it will also help to increase footfall for those of you trying to sell items. As Rob said, there will be marshals showing you were to park up. This is for your safety and enjoyment. PLEASE listen to the marshals and follow their instructions  :daumenhoch:

I was joking on FB earlier when I suggested painting lines on the grass, but it would be cool if we could
If people are sensible though we should hopefully be ok

Hopefully we will also see a bit more activity in terms of people getting site tags in the final run up to MK itself ;)

You could get some ground marking spray paint the type the council use on the roads from screwfix etc. 10 tins would probably sort it.

That's cos the Rad click/Brown noses pitch up on the Friday night  :-X

It was more like the cheeky cnuts that aren't SST holders, some not even RAD members following the sheep on various FB groups and ignoring the kind-hearted pleas from the RAD Team and just rocking up when they feel like.

What some people don't realise Paul is that this is organised as a 2 day event, so the insurance policy that Nick puts his name to only covers those 2 days, and not Friday, so if someone was to show up on Friday and have an accident, they're fooked.

I went on a Friday when I was a Mod, as soon as Rob Steele had built the mini quarter pipe, some bloke (who nobody knew and had pitched up) was allowing his kids to climb all over it, and slide down. Imagine if one of those kids had fallen, or had a massive splinter? You just know that the Parent would be gunning for Nick and the Organisors. I doubt that they want that sort of headache, would you?

Not a very nice way to describe the people that have taken a day off work/volunteered their time to help set up a free event/organise main display areas/distribute fire buckets/help clear up rubbish/document the event on video & camera/help organise the camping plots/oversee the events throughout the weekend/serve at the bar etc etc etc

Without these lovely people this event simply would not happen. This year in particular has taken a staggering amount of work behind the scenes - as MK has grown so have things like H&S compliance and having to work alongside the authorities.

It's not as if we're all there a day early lounging about & snorting coke off the arses of hookers*











* that does help to make it a bit more fun though

Paul, you would be one of the last people on here that I would expect to wave the 'Rad is a clique' flag.  :shocked:

Are you referring to the site supporters as 'click/brown nosers'? As far as I can see that's the only difference between yourself and other people on here.  :daumenhoch:
