Lining up of vans - just a thought

Postby MattBlackMinibus » Thu Aug 27, 2009 9:24 am

At the Ace, the vans all get lined up well by marshalls,
I guess to help everyone fit in, but it looks good in photos.

At North Weald and other meets, this doesn't happen and looks messy, and I think it's a shame.

I know people have awnings and tents etc, but that can be accounted for by leaving more room for each person.

I think it'd make for a more satisfying and impressive view for us all and for newcomers to the scene.
Also it'd make it easier for us all to see each others vans.

So who's for having all vans parked around the sides of the field, all facing inwards?

mate the only way you can line up vehicles is on the show day :wink: when you are camping here at billing you use the veicles to go to shops etc and they get parked all over the place :lol: :lol:
so your idea is good but it wont work here :lol: :lol: well not with me anyway :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: my 2 are all over the place and so is everybody elses :wink:

Still think it's worth a try Mark.

P.S. Is the field dry?

on the show day (sunday) we'll try our best to get em all lined up :D but we dont have marshalls so we'll all have to chip in :lol: organised chaos :lol:

and we need ALL vans in the show - it's not about winning it's about taking part :D and i've got 36 trophys in the back of my van and i need to be handing ALL of them out :lol:

I agree that the show field is the only time to line em up.

Its not feasable when camping, not just as Mark said about going to the shops etc, but also I will park mine so the wind/rain etc blows against the drivers side so it aint going in my side door!
