Ha ha, yes I've pulled in there on the way down to Goodwood Revival in the Sunbeam Alpine after the nearside front brake locked on and smoke started pouring out as we came off the M25. Needless to say I was dressed as a 2nd Lt Royal Artillery (5th Anti Aircraft Division) and the girlfriend at the time was in full Land Army get up (oh yes...). It took the RAC man (sorry Gav) to point out that as it would take several hours for recovery we might want to try driving home slowly rather than hanging around there. It was then that we had a look around and what had registered only subconsciously suddenly became very apparent! I'm glad I wasn't on my own!

Just saying there seems quite a bit of knowledge being shared about these sites! 'I was just there to try and get directions away from there....yeah ok!' :giggle: :ghey:

It looks like I can save your blushes gentlemen. I am aiming to be onsite at 3pm and hoping a member of staff will be there to let me in. We were hoping to be able to use this time to set up the scene but as it stands I'm not sure how this will work out.
I do ask that if you arrive early on site that you stay in the safe zone and don't wander off for a jolly to recce the site, it would be nice to keep some things set up for the game. Please also remember that it is a locked and secure site so not really ideal for you to arrive then go in and out of the gate to maccy D or blue water for a shopping trip. I'll be manning the gate to start with and after that will leave a sign on the gate with a mobile number for you to call if you turn up and no one is there. I won't be there later in the evening but will leave the phone behind, don't expect a polite or sober response if you're planning on turning up late at night!

All noted, and great.

Let me know if I can help. Even if it is to let people in so that you aren't continuously interrupted if you are setting up.
I can even help if you want kit moved across site.
RETIRED, thanks for some truly memorable times and great people

Great, thanks. Like Ade, I'd be happy to help out with gate duty, lugging stuff around etc.

Cheers

Cool , I have a few bits to drop off with the organization team but after that I'm happy to do gate duty ,nothing like a strong German presence at the gate.

Guys that will be a really big help to us as we were hoping to get everything laid out before and unfortunately we don`t have control over the gate so any help here would be really appreciated :good:

I don't mind leaving early so we can help out. It only takes about an hour and 20 minutes to get to Dartford from where we are.
Regards,

Ralph

Sorry if this has been posted already and I've missed it, but what time will the gate be open from on Saturday morning? Aiming to arrive for about 08:00.
