without entering the arguement, craig is a very respectful young man. although a little strange!

mini shows are crap, minis are crap. we go because we work hard, we go to party hard and enjoy ourselves with friends we see a few times a year. this is how its going to be, i will not be stopping this.

if you want to bring kids camping, go to a campsite. dont bring them to a show where we, are going to be having fun. simple as.

the music you heard, wasnt us, or tmf. i think you'll find it was the drug fuelled sheffield mini club members, but hey ho! get off your high horse, it doesnt suit you!


Personally, I think it's you who should go to a campsite. Families camping with children could have traveled a long way to go to the show because they want to enjoy the show and the Minis there.

I understand about staying up late when camping with mates and having a few beers; I did the same camping at skeg last week, however, we kept the noise down when others had gone to sleep. Not everybody goes to 'party hard' and that is something you must respect. It's not everybody's idea of fun.

I'm not sure how big Gaydon is, but if it is fairly big, they really should have a quiet camping area so that everybody is kept happy.

It was one of the quietest camping mini shows i've been too!!!!

There were 3 or 4 sources of loud music, but the group near the marshal have been punished/targeted.

Anyone who was not there needs to stop commenting, it's annoying. The man told us to turn the music off, which we did, then all we could hear was the next group.

The complaint we recieved was a generic complaint,and not aimed at TMF as the sole responsible party,at the end of the day we organise stands and events for our members to have fun and enjoy themselves,on the understanding our members act with some dignity towards fellow campers e.t.c,and of course we are fully aware there are two sides to every story

Ive only just been sent a link to this, I own the citroen thats been identified as a "trouble maker", m906pkl. In my eyes we were no way out of line and the action taken is unfair, but if anyone wants to take a pop at me via a computer, feel free as i couldnt care less.

I will be going next year, i might have a different car by then, if not, ill stick a different set of plates on the citroen, or ill just borrow a different car off a friend.

Further proof to me, that People obviously don't have anything better to do than winge and complain.

i know exactly the group of cars/campers and the behaviour was terrible, i know for a fact that the marshal warned them on the friday night regarding the loud music etc and even threatened that if it was repeated on the saturday they would be removed from the site, how ever because of the amount of drink consumed it was not possible to throw them out as it would have put drunk drivers on the road.

i like a bit of drum and bass and a few drinks but come 2am it was starting to take the human water! then there was the state the pitch was left in, haven't you heard of bins? there was empty bottles, cans, BBQ's and a chair left along with other food wrappers etc if i was gaydon (they had to send several members of staff to pick up the litter) id be sending a cleaning bill to each person listed as it was discussing and the people should be ashamed! the marshal had a huge supply of bin bags and you/they where not even 50m away from a skip! its just plain lazy.



oh, come off it man! we cleared the site of all rubbish when we left sunday! so that is total bull!

We did and a very good job too, the marshal SAW us do this because we put all 3 bags on top of the Citreon to drive it over to the skip about 150 meters away and 1 fell off and he laughed...
