General Team Information

It is June and the weather could be any number of conditions. Please check the forecast and prepare accordingly.

Site Footprint

All teams will get a 20×20 spot default – it is known however that some teams need more and some need less. These will be dealt with on a case by case basis. Please let us know if you require more or less. Thank you.


All sites will not have power. If you have a critical need for power, it is good planning to bring a back-up and register early. You will need to bring your own extension cords which may need to run 100’s of feet. Please also be considerate when planning what you are going to plug in. If you are hogging all the outlets, tripping due to poor choices, or similar you will not be popular with other teams.

Alcoholic beverages

MickDuff’s has permitted the entire event area and due to that, any outside alcoholic beverages are not allowed. They have plenty of beers and a selection of canned cocktails.


Toilets – We have some inside and will have portable toilets onsite as well.

Three Tub Wash Station – Due to Covid-19 we are choosing not to provide this this. Please note due to Covid-19 the normal tent health, safety, and hygiene are likely to be checked more – although at this point in time no additional requirements have been identified.

Ash Bins – there will be ash bins available throughout the event.

Grey Water – We can dispose of this inside the brewery but it needs to be handled neatly and transported easily.

Trash – this will be spread out throughout the site and collected regularly. Any concerns or issues please bring them up as soon as practical and we will resolve for you.

Your Team Required Equipment – This is a combination health considerations and general best practices:

  • Fire extinguisher – An approved 2A40BC or 3A40BC (or larger) fire extinguisher with either a receipt of purchase or a service tag showing certification less than 12 months old. The needle on the extinguisher’s gauge must be in the green area.

  • Temperature thermometer

  • Handwash station

  • Bleach bucket, 3 tub wash station

  • 10 x 10 shelter minimum overhead coverage

  • Cooler with ice to keep food cold
