View Full Version : Large Marquee Available for Pitting for Everyone at The National

19-08-2009, 05:49 PM
We have a large marquee - 100ft x 40ft being erected for the national for anyone who wishes to pit in there to hopefully create a great atmosphere..

If you don't want to pit in the marquee and prefer your own tents thats no problem at all, we just thought it would be a good idea, there won't be electricity or tables provided, you will still have to use your own generators and pitting tables. We will leave most of the marquee sides open..

There will be plenty of space in it in the evening for people to socialise and scrutineering will be in there during the day.

Fingers crossed it wont rain (but it is a bank holiday weekend :wtf:) but it might be useful if it does.

No need to book a place or anything just help yourself when you arrive, there will be heaps of space.

How close is the marque to the carvan area as i need power for pitting but mum and dad need power for caravan. I would love to be in the marque but if i just cant get power there from the generator. Ill just pit in the awning.

The caravan area is right next to and at the back of the marquee, you sound like you'll be there pretty early ash so you will be able to get one of the closest spots I think, as long as you have a decent size extension lead you'll be fine ;)

Can proberly reach 40 meters from the generator if really needed.


27-08-2009, 09:56 PM
That'll be fine, several times over I'm sure :o !
