JAE Survival Guide...

Post by d-peg »

Recycled from previous years...!

Where are MR2OC?

As you enter Wicksteed Park you’ll be given your wrist band and show guide by the big guy on the gate. Then you need to follow signs for the TSUKUBA field, this is where the stand is. In the middle of this field is a brand new toilet/shower/facilities block. The MR2OC stand is located behind this (behind the IMOC … not too shabby and better than last year AND ideal for IKO location too :cool1:

Image

We are on the plots O3 to L4 - 8 squares in total :D

When you arrive at the stand be it in convoy on your todd, please wait with your car to be directed where to park. The parking plan will not be sorted on the Thursday ish, so please hang with your car until we’ve got you appropriately parked. :th:

What to bring?

There’s been numerous threads and posts about what to bring with you. Thought I’d condense it all into one post and one place!

Essentials;
Tickets!
The missus (if you’re bringing her… they get quite upset if you forget them)
Your Car …. In this case MR2’s where humanly possible (non MR2's permitted on stand but MUST be Jap - MR2's will obviously taske pride of place as well :) )
Money
Folding chair
Tent
Mallet (for tent pegs)
Inflatable bed & means to inflate it
Sleeping bag
Pillow!!!
Tea/Coffee mug
Towel + shower stuff and loo roll (they do run out !!)
Clothes
Your favourite tipple.
Hangover cure Resolve/Barocca etc (not hair of the dog)
Ciggies & lighters (if you smoke)
Camera/Phone/SatNav (sometimes all in one now)
Clean clothes!!!

Optional extras;
Food (BBQable) (in a cool box)
Camping Stove/Grill
Cuttlery and Crockery for above
Umbrella
Sun cream
LED Camping Lantern and/or Torch
Solar Powered Battery charger for the car
Car cleaning stuff
Washing Up Bowl
Washing Up liquid
Emergency Loo Roll
Pack of "Festival Shower"


What to do or not to do?
DO come and find one of us organiser types (we have blue badges). We’ll sort you out your welcome pack and name badges… Depending on how much we’ve already drunk we may even help you put your tent up.! The name badges are obviously good for putting usernames to faces but also and more importantly names to faces. :th: I realise I am probably shooting myself in the foot here but I’d rather not be called d-peg all weekend!

DON’T sit in your car all weekend! This is more of a big social than a car show. With lots of activities to keep us entertained from the 5 a side football to the IKO and winning best stand. More importantly a time to meet new people you’ve bee chatting to / taking advice from over the internet actually meet them! Catch up on things, check out each others cars, new modifications and so on.

DO mingle! Come say hello! We are a social bunch and I personally (and many others too) will talk to anyone. I may not make any sense but that’s by the by!

DON’T fret over not having the perfect ‘2’. Everybody’s, even the most perfect looking car, has their little imperfections. So give it a good scrub before you turn up but please don’t tire yourself out trying to clean the underside of your gearbox with a toothbrush…. Unless that’s your bag of course! ALL MR2's regardless of condition will be on display on the stand :)

What to expect?

Well ….. it’s a car show so there’s 1000’s of cars to wander round and drool over and a fair few to have a good chuckle at too! :D As said previously it is very much a social event, 5-a-side, Tug of War, It’s a KnockOut, Club Auction (possibly), Fireworks, Live Music, Drinking, some do fancy dress & silly stuff. So hopefully plenty to keep you entertained so most of all enjoy yourself :)
