Our main problem wasn't the car parking (thanks for the spaces you did give us though ) it was mainly that our saturday arrivers ended up with nowhere to camp at all due to the randoms who pitched up IN our campsite! One of our guys had a car parked accross the front of his tent, and he couldn't get in it!! Apparently he was told to go fourth and multiply when he asked for the car to be moved lol Change of tactics next year methinks!Lee, if you had problems fitting some more cars in you should have come to us again and we could have possibly moved a few cars around to fit some more in. We found some space for a few Novas, if you were struggling I'm sure we could have done a bit of automotive tetris and put a few more in.
Regarding the cars bouncing off the rev limiters further down the campsite, I hear you on that one! I did find some comedy though when I passed one of them (Think it was a LET'd Tigra) and damn near pissed myself as the boost hose flew off and the 3 chavs around the engine bay nearly shot out of their skin :lmao:
IF the generator was a problem, you should have told us and we'd have moved it, we may be leathered by 11pm, but we don't bite lol.
Collapsable 'box' would be better for transportation, if someone can get me sizes etc i'm sure i could bang something out.wonder if it is worth knocking up a Acoustic box for it somthing that will fold up with a lid on fire retardant foam on the inside ???
Anyone got the skill and the materials ?
I voted for you too at the VBOA and I doubt if you were a scapegoat here as most people would not now know of your 'history', I certainly didn't before that meeting. This is not a forum known for its attachment to cr*p in the past, only the good bits get carried forward in the joint consciousness :Cool2:.I am dissappointed though that we still seem to be the scapegoat for any wrong doings that go on at events. Hopefully one day we can prove we aren't the group of people our stereotype points to, but for the time being, I suppose we are going to have to live with it.
I thought I had it all sorted out Alex, then when I went to the loft to get the bunting it had managed to wrap and knot itself around the bottom of the joist, I just didn't have time to untangle it at that point.Matt, if that's the case, I suggest you start untangling that bunting ASAP! :lmao:
If you neatly wrap it around something like a box so it doesn't get tangled up. I still have the bunting poles to use for Billing etc so we can be all good...

That's our intentions to pass on our feedback to Ian too regarding some issues. For a start how much money Pod take in from an event like this, and also other events like Japfest, Fast Ford etc etc, you'd think they would invest some money in laying down some hardcore or something to make some access roads like at Billing.Yeah, we're talking about getting there en mass as early as possible to get a site against the fence and try to build some sort of tent based inpenetratable fortress lol
Also talking about camping off site as well, but then the evening atmosphere is lost, plus the queueing in the morning.
I dont see why each club can't have its own camping area. Especially if each club is responsible for said area, meaning no leaving the site in a state. (when I drove out of the show on Sunday, the campsite looked like a nuclear disaster zone)
We are going to send an email to Ian with out thoughts about it all, Would be a good idea if you did the same. If all the clubs show a united front about the issues, the chances of something being done is probably going to be greater.
I do hope that wasn't one of us and if you want to PM me what vehicle it was I'll be having a word..One of our guys had a car parked accross the front of his tent, and he couldn't get in it!! Apparently he was told to go fourth and multiply when he asked for the car to be moved lol
There just appear to be some people who, 3-4 years ago all had the "nova boy" image that was about, but now they've all grown up a bit, a lot of Novas have rusted away and those that are left are kept, generally, in much better condition by owners and treated with a lot more careI wasn't referring to the PNG's previous incarnation, I was referring to the stigma attached to Nova owners in general.
Although when you see sights like brand spanking new Astra VXR's being banged off their limiters in neutral, you have to wonder how on earth these people get in a position to afford such cars without thinking about drug dealing, so I suppose Im just as bad at stereotyping people as well lol
You're talking about many moons ago though Malky you old fart.I was a member of the PNG in Scotland many moons ago. I didnt renew after year one as attending my first 'meet' involved me being completely ignored the entire time. I approached the 'organiser' to introduce myself and was completely insulted at his 'brush me off' attitude as he walked away. My opinion of that lot were a bunch of clique b*stards and it put me off.
Obviously that does not stereotype all the PNG members, just a select few ignorant folk. Thats just my opinion.
