*** MK17 - HOW CAN WE MAKE IT EVEN BETTER? ***
« on: February 08, 2017, 10:53 AM »
Last year went very smoothly thanks in no small part to loads of people helping out
There's been quite a bit sorted already for this year's MK but we can always try and improve
So, if there are any ideas you have on how we can make this year's the best ever please feel free to post your suggestions below, while we still have a bit of time on our side :daumenhoch:

I think it should be SST holders only on the heli-pad. Was a little disappointed to get refused entry last year only to find two non members camped out in there... what's that all about. ???

Circulation is always a problem. The lower field traditionaly always suffers from a lack of visitors and even the helipad seemed quite last year. I dont know the solution and maybe the special guests encouraged people to stay around the marquee area more last year but it would be great to somehow stretch the event beyong the marquee area.

Would love to see Bob, Eddie, Mat, whoever just cruising round saying hello and looking at peoples stands/stalls

Maybe it is what it is and peeps just need to get out more  :D
Sixteen thirty-two. What is that? A year?   No, it's your top score on Pole Position.

go on then, would love to hear about it :teef:

old school flatland comp?  :angel:

would need some room, but could be a good crowd puller to the helipad if there was enough room?
also would need to know if it's still got slabs on it!

I reckon it would be great fun for spectators and competitors alike! I don't mind helping to organise it.... :daumenhoch:
If the helipad is not usable the flat in between the ramps would probably suffice....

The helipad is extremely slippery. The amount of crashes I've seen on there over the years cannot all be blamed on beer!

myself, matti hemmings, gary hodges did have a flatland sesh infront of the ramps last year but was busy dodging ramp riders and floor not the best.

didn't try the helipad but if slidy can be workable with a mop and a bottle of coke.

Flatland jam on the tarmac ramp area can be sorted out. I'd like to see more organised stuff in 'my' area. I have a small PA also, so let's set a day & time window and get it on. I love flatland.

Long jump contest is also no problem. The ramp was there last year but nowt got organised. I'd build a slightly larger one for this year if the demand is there.

I understand your frustration Nick. Hopefully we can make it fairer this year for some of the rad (forum) regulars/supporters

I'm happy to help arrange the car parking again this year, including putting up barriers/signs and directing people.

I have a good speaker with integrated amp and microphone that we can use for the prize giving announcements on Sunday afternoon (as long as we still have an electricity supply at that point)

I do not know how you can make it better but I can, perhaps, suggest how to make it more popular?
I have never been to a MK event, I am hoping this will be my first. Please do not forget people new to the event, drop in visitors or the curious.

In all honesty the only way you can make it better, is by YOU making it better.

I know that sounds a bit weird but what I mean is, it's as good as you make it........The guys all work their arses off to sort it all out and put on stuff.....So turn up and join in, speak to people, ride your bike, have a few beers and just enjoy.


But don't pull brake levers or twist bloody grips  ;D

As Rob says it's pretty bloody near perfect already ... Anyone who's been knows this
It's the people who make it and most people who attend are on the whole are, to use an Americanism,  "good people"   :daumenhoch:
It's the highlight of the year for me ... It's no coincidence that Andy and I were amongst the last to leave late Sunday  last year :)
