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.

You're far from being a newbie now Peter ;)
Even if you turn up by yourself just make yourself known and you'll soon find you're talking to people you already know
Try and make the whole thing, you'll kick yourself if you turn up Saturday and have to leave as the Dog & Duck's just getting going!

Not sure if this has been said already, maybe  big notice board with whats going on, where and times..
Fooking gutted  missed the long jump last year, really wanted to wup benoooooos ass to... explosion

Hopefully it'll all be in the Radmag this year ... So it's a program of events as well as a cool read explosion
It was in the mag last year Ant, unfortunatly only read it once back at home. ........ on a notice board in the main area would be much better as you loose rack of time as well, with so much going on... well mainly chatting..lol

A few more toilets if it's within the budget. Can't think of anything else.

More people riding bikes... around the site, on the ramps, on the track, an old school flatland jam would be cool.

High jump and long jump being run for 'Over 35s' and 'Under 35s'

Dog owners clearing up dog shit.

People drinking responsibly, not to excess.

Sunday having less of a hungover vibe ( see above )

Work out who is going in the Helipad field in advance and issue invites ... prolific collectors? SST? whatever ... but make sure it is PACKED. There was no vibe in there last year as entry was too restricted IMO.

Thats all for now.

I'll try not to be in the Sunday hangover brigade this year Ed. There were a few of us sat round our camp on Sunday afternoon that were a bit worse for wear.

I agree about the helipad. I was one of the fortunate ones who were on it, but it did seem very quiet. I understand the need for adequate health & safety, including easy/emergency access, but i think there would be enough room for a circle of people on the outside, and another tight around the helipad with a wide access area between the two  :)

I'd cut the grass.
It can get jungle like outside of the Helipad.

May be this has been said before, most certainly, but can someone with a steady hand and editorial experience record the event and the bikes? Post it on YouTube. I would love to do it but I am techno illiterate. I often search for old school vids and want more. I especially want more bikes! Splice it with lager but more bikes.

Last year the Mid School was mainly gathered around the Hoffman tent/display, this year is there anything else to the same sorta tube? I'm not suggesting Hoffman again but maybe another brand which hit it big within that era? S&m standard etc,,,

Or will there be somewhere to possibly share our bikes rather then just riding about in them? Show and shine is a great idea and raises money and I'm not looking to put a downer on that but some of us I'm sure would like to display our bikes without having to complete or have the shiniest stuff there, happy to stick some money in the bucket and raise funds and whatever else  so that's not an issue
