Anyway, it will be a great festival to go to and

Hmmm...  Thinking of paying a visit.
Is there room to buggy or will things be TOO crowded for that?

Hackney Marshes is one big field, with around 30 (!) football pitches
on it. No worries though, the goals are taken away. There is
definetely more space to buggy than on Blackheath.

Hi Dude.

As it goes, there's about 100 football pitches on the Marshes in the
winter. It's the biggest site of its kind in Europe.

Whatever,

Chris.

Don't Nike use it in there new advert?

The Ad starts with an aerial shot of Hackney with all the pitches
being used.

DISCLAIMER: I'm not associated with Nike in anyway but if any sport
clothing manufacturers are reading this.......

ATTENTION: IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT

The National Parakart Association is pleased to announce that
further to discussions with the British Buggy Club and the British
Federation of Sand and Land Yacht Clubs. All CLUB* races will be open
to any buggier who can provide acceptable proof of insurance and can
demonstrate competent buggy control.

* National events require competitors to hold a current National License
  European events require competitors to hold a current European License

End Announcement.

Paul,
        We set up camp out of the way at Hackney, come over with your BBC
membership card, Hackney is sponsored by High as a kite / East London
Kite
Festival so entry is FREE. Everyone is welcome pre-registration would be
nice,
just phone or Email. I'll get the PA to announce a time for the Pilots
meeting.

In past years we've only had half a dozen racers so it's an ideal event
to
cut your teath on. It should be a good event we camp away from the
festival
so you can buggy from your tent to the fireworks display and then buggy
back
at the end of the evening. Quite afew have registered already the whole
Traction Action team have registered including Peter Mirkovic (his 1st
race,
does that make him a novice?) and Mark Kingshottt who will have *THE* 8m
Predator, mines still in pieces.

If anybody doesn't want to race please feel free to come over and watch,
the
start line is THE place to spectate.
