Sponsors - Mindless

Go check their range out here!
Mindless Longboards have come a long way from their classic pintails and campus cruisers I remember from when I started riding properly, and now produce a whole host of setups that ride well straight out of the cellophane.  Fitted with a range of very safe smaller diameter square lipped wheels and their own reverse kingpin trucks, their attention to detail even includes coarse tape as standard on their racier setups

Although not attending the event in person, they've given us a bundle of goodies to give out as prizes! Cheers guys!

Weekend Schedule and additional details!

Righty Right People!

Here's the schedule, for a big version click on it and I'll post a text only version later.

Also, Here's a load of other details as well, explained on a map (apart from cashpoints, you can't gmaps them!)

Nearest cashpoint:
Fairlop town, also nearest tube station, and nearest shops.
Nearest food:
the sammich shop/cafe at the cycle centre does some rather good basic nosh items between openign and around 4pm - don't expect foie gras, but expect a good cup of tea and a damn tasty bacon sarnie. They do drinks (hot, cold, and isotonic) and there's water fountains there to fill bottles up if you want
Nearest Big Shop
Probably tesco or sainsbury's in Fairlop
Nearest Pub/shops to the campsite
along the road to the campsite once you've turned right at the traffic lights.

Evening food (and drink)/ breakfast food:
Provide for yourselves - the campsite has drinking water, a microwave, gas hobs and an oven we are allowed to use. BBQs are perfectly acceptable and there's normally a big fire if you want dangerous cooking.
A lot of people have breakfast at the cafe on the hill, or something easy they got from a shop the night before.

Tidying up on Sunday morning
We have to be out of the campsite by 11am, please bag up any rubbish and don't leave mess, so they're happy to have us back another time! I'll bring some bin bags in case but hopefully we won't need them.

Looking forward to the weekend!

Dangerous decks

Yeah that's right! Dangerous Decks are coming to Hogtoberfest! I've been pretty busy, so sorry Pete for not posting this sooner. Dangerous are an underground mafia of well mannered skaters and real people who moonlight under the guise of making rad custom boards for people everywhere. Dangerous decks have been relentless in their pursuit of high quality kitchens, and their tried and tested bottlerocket luges are currently being used as cupboard doors in Buckingham Palace and Leicester City's Courthouse.

C'mon, their logo is the laser panda, I'm not reporting this like it's the Sunday times.
What they will however be doing (Pete does actually make kitchens btw) is bringing some mini moto and buttboard action to the hills. Check out the disciplines tab for where what's happening.
