How do we organise parking? When are cars allowed onsite? How to handle the backdoor gate?

Cars allowed on side:
I have to say that I kinda get the argument of Kinder Kiez. Or maybe that's me not wanting to piss off parents? But then again, there is a line to draw. This line is also requiring a certain amount of volunteer work, whatever the solution might be.

Organise parking:
I strongly advocate for a lot of signs, pre-education, maybe a little poll in the groups asking people when they plan to arrive by car so gate ans greeter are aware of the influx on the parking space as well as on the gate and can plan accordingly. It is not a safe measure but might give us some heads up. Also to inform greeters on those shifts that they shall expect to be also responsible for parking. If necessary, greeter leads need to take on the parking issue if the greeter team is well instructed. They will do a good job, I assume, so greeter leads on shift can go and help with the parking situation.
If we come up with any good, cheap, nonMOOP ideas to roughly pre-sketch parking lanes, that could help as well. Sketching out a wider lane for campervans ('The late space tourist camp') could limit the discussion on camper-vans on side after wednesday for non-kinderkiez / non - (exception).
And then there is my naive optimism regarding the common sense of people. Everybody hates shit parkers!

No idea yet

what is the argument of Kinder Kiez? I might have missed that...

Hei Thilo,

the argument of Kinder Kiez was that most of their camp members come with camper vans and their school kids. They already take the kids off from school for two school days when they come by thursday and cannot make it earlier.

They will be missing a big chunk of their camp, obviously, if they are not allowed on side on thursday. But I guess they can also point that out in the form you're offering?


Thilo Wed 16 May 2018 9:39AM

yeah... good point. I guess we can allow people to enter the site with cars even after the event started. New rule: no driving after your car is parked. If we have the manpower we can send a gate hippie or a ranger to go with them.

Sounds good. Maybe we can say in general the cars need to be there before the gate opens but we can give later camper van arrival permits in special cases, they need to however apply for it (in the registration form)?


Thilo Wed 16 May 2018 9:51AM

I'm asking for arrival times (day) in the form. Good enough I guess?


Hanna-Maija (Animal) Wed 16 May 2018 11:22AM

I am not sure... Maybe just saying no entering with cars after Wednesday noon but if you have a problem with this contact us. Then at least we have some control over it?


Thilo Wed 16 May 2018 11:34AM

I can also reach out to people who say they#ll come on/after wednesday

How many kids are we talking about?


Thilo Wed 16 May 2018 9:27AM

Hey there. Here is a little form for registering cars & campers on site:
