Stanford Hall 2010 - The Events Team!

Well people, after the huge 'success' of Brooklands, we need to think about getting everything in place for Stanford Hall - our biggest AI attended show of the year - for next month, 6th June.

As you may, or may not know, Stanford Hall is unlike Gaydon and Brooklands - as in there isn't any museum or rides as such - but instead is more of a car display show, with a lot more socialising, chatting, food and getting to know each other better.

Now that we have the FF marquee, we intend to set this up to full size - namely 12m * 6m.

So what we ideally need for this is a group of FF'ers who are willing to become part of the new team - this will not only involve getting on site early to help set up, but also help throughout the day, and also with the cleaning and putting down of the marquee at the end.

Of course, I appreciate that not all people can be there all day to help, but anything you can contribute will be awesome

In addition to this, you will get access to the Events Team forum on this site, so that we can discuss issues, timings, general show planning, best way forward, etc Oh, and you get a shiney red badge under your name

So - any volunteers? Please add your name and what you are willing to do - and then we can take it from there.

Oh, and no trashing please

Re: Stanford Hall 2010 - The Events Team!

I can help with setting up/taking down like I've done in previous years

Dunno about during the day though as I will need to spend a couple of hours with another car club at the event; just so you know.

And can I just say how disappointed I was to read the closed Brooklands thread. It didn't make enjoyable reading. I'm not going to point fingers of blame (if there's any blame to give) as I wasn't there so couldn't possibly comment. However I do know how much effort goes into leading the organisation of any event and I find it a real shame that friendships that appeared to be solid seem to have faltered.

Nice one hopefully the first of many.

We still need to work out whether we are putting it up the night before, or getting there early to do it. Obviously, the more hands on deck, the better
