Japshow 2015 Chat Thread - Ideas Needed Guys

Post by MR2Jay »

Afternoon Guys :th:

Let's keep the Japshow chat here......we need ideas and input from you all :th:

Every year we always have a camping spot set out at Santa Pod with a few staple ideas and festivities - Drunken Dodgems being one of the highlights ;)

Just recently we have started doing a communal bbq where food is donated by members and everyone is welcome to join in. This gets everyone together chatting and believe me, no-one goes hungry ;)

Another thing we have started doing as a warm up to JAE is a chilli-challenge. A few of us certainly like to whip up a few culinary delights to share about - this year is no different as I am creating my own hot sauce and delving into the black art of Ghost Chilli Sausages. ;)

I like to see this show as a gentle warm up to JAE - indeed a lot of the guys that make this their first show quite often can't wait for JAE. We are a welcoming bunch and a one nighter is quite often a great way to test the water :th:

The sign up/payment links to this show can be found here :- http://www.mr2oc.co.uk/forums/281/163093.html

So come on, give me your ideas :yh:

You know when you enter a big cavern and shout "boo"?

Echo's well, doesn't it? ;)

although I cant attend, based of previous attendances some form of musical entertainment usually goes well, along with some form of lighting for the marquee for when it gets dark.
also I know abit of work for someone but could do a quiz aswell (some general knowledge and some specific MR2 knowledge too)

Lighting and music are certainly an option but we will need to locate a genny from somewhere. A small one will do. I can provide fairy lights and probably get my hands on a small stereo rig (still no laptop and no space to bring the dj rig)

I'm not going up the strip.... I'm hoping to do it next year once I've got the car where I'm happy that all the worn parts are replaced....

On a side note, I'll try and get a couple of big disposable bbq's to bring along. Biggest problem is that I'm away with the family for a week beforehand so I'm not going to have time to go and see anyone to get any sails :no:

I think they are spread around the country mate. I'm not 100% sure where they are if I'm honest

Mine came through today, thanks.

Not keen on putting my mobile number in public view though.
