Marquee?

Postby belly » Wed Aug 04, 2010 9:36 am

So is there a Marquee sorted for Transitmania? Or would something like a 5m x 5m Chinese hat be any good ? Btw this isn't a gazebo it's proper event industry equipment :D

thanks for the offer - but we've got the marquee/gazebo from last year :D

also Billing are a bit fussy about marquees as one of the stipulations was if we had a marquee it had to be only hired via there contracted company :(

That one that you worked in Mike went ! We did a smaller one for the mk7s we did have to remove some of the concrete plinth of that one though ! I've been doing them since I was sixteen so sixteen years now and not had one go yet ! We use proper German (Roder) manufactured equipment thats snow and storm rated, there determined by width largest I've worked on is a 50m wide span length is as long as you want just keep adding frames :D

Those pics look like they had framed marquee's and traditionals (ropes/king poles) it's the trads that failed ! Looks like they took a bay of framed with them but the framed is still standing due to the bracing wires in the correct places ! Still not nice :( you sure your big beasty didn't just fart ? Bigjohn :lol:
