Can't fault the organisation in any way, I just wish we didn't all have to have our vans rattling with the HEAVY BASS all day :!: The sound off is fair enough, but I heard literally dozens of people complaining about the noise, tone it down next year guys please :wink: It not all about the bass :!:



:lol: :lol: Also people need to stop blaming me every time there hear a bit of bass. Nearly got kicked out on Sunday morning by security. They rolled up in their shitty Clio saying how this ''Yellow'' Transit had been blaring music all through the night until 3am When I stated the van was turned of well before 11.00pm he goes if he finds out it was me, he will come back and have a serious word with me. SO I said I am standing here now have any word you want now as this is the only Yellow Transit here..........before things got out of hand a fellow forum member stepped in and told them to get bent and off they went.


I'm not blaming just you mate! But you are included as well as Guy, and Stu and a few others who's names I don't know. We know you all worked hard for you fantastic systems, and in competition nobody minds as its part of the show :D , I have several thousand watts in my own van (nothing compared to yours), but its the kind of event where people want to talk to each other.......not SHOUT :wink:

Yer I totally agree mate, it can become annoying over time for some people this was the reason I turned the van before 11.00pm on Saturday night. But the fact is when its show and shine the next day everyone walking around tends to request for a quick demo and if your planning on winning any ICE trophies you give of a quick demo.

Also quit blaming me :!:

just messing :lol:

Good to see the sercurity are still power hungry idiots, I was at billing a month ago camping with a group of friends and we had a running with the security, they tend to go in for the kill first before checking their facts first.

Another game suggestion is the quickest wheel change, only using mannual tools, and again the fastes person of the day wins a gift or something.

Or A bikini wash, something for the ladies to feel part of the event lol

A good game we had at Ford Corsair Rally was driving your motor blindfolded around a course with marker poles and a mate sitting in the passenger seat shouting out left, right, brake etc. Fastest round the course with no penalties is the winner.

I was only there for the day myself but had a real good time..Oh.......... and picked up a trophy!, thanks for all your votes.
