is there any one attending the show that could  help me out here ....


 for me to do a professional "battle display" using pyrotecnics ... ( yes i have had permission to do it at the lake )


 if you have anything that resembles a boat . of any kind that i can set on fire please bring it with you .... preferably made out of foam/ polystyrene  so i can blow up instead of just setting it on fire  that would be great . i am only planning to do this on the Saturday of the weekend . so i can have a few beers sat night and spend all day sunday suffering and sleeping in my tent lol ...
 
please PM me if you can help me out by bringing a boat or something even if you got a few bits of foam laying around that you could throw together in 5 mins to resemble a boat at a distance . 
 any help would be greatly received  BIGGER THE BETTER

Re: MAYHEM is a coming 2014 campsite info

Hi everyone


Got it sorted as promised :-))


Bill you might need to contact Wickies again, we have got a 5 discount per night for camping, instead of 20 per night it will be 15 per night. You will need to ring Flo on the Wicksteed Park reception desk and she'll issue you your discount, just mention you are camping with Mayhem.


Due to the uncertainty of the railway running this year the entrance fee will be either 5 per car if the train is not running or 6 if it is. They are not sure if the work to the new bridges will be complete in time for the Mayhem weekend hence why they can't give a discount on entrance.


The campsite is confirmed and will be cordoned off in advance of the early Mayhemers arriving on Thursday afternoon time, and is in the main campsite (with the toilet/shower block) just left of the entrance to the campsite. Just a prior warning you might not be able to walk down the traditional path from the campsite to the model boat lake, that road is currently being relaid.

You'll have to thank Nigel Marriott, he was the one who got the discount confirmed for us, I have just passed the info on to the Mayhemers but we have worked together to sort it all out in time.
Hope to see you there John, and your yacht.  :-))
