  • Wildcard-Search
    With the help of a so-called wildcard you can look for several search words, which have the same word beginning. If you search e.g. for "Typo*", the search will find everything that begins with "Typo" : Typo3, Typoscript, Typocode, Typo3user... etc.
  • Negative search
    If you do not want to find certain expressions in your search result, you can cause this with placing a hyphen in front. Terms containing this phrase are excluded from the search result.
  • Search for user
    It is possible to limit the search result on answers of certain users. In addition to the retrieval query attach still another "user:username" and find the results, which were written by this certain user. If the username could not be found this will be ignored.

Trampolines

Hi all,

Can anyone tell me if it is still "legal" to bring a portable trampoline (3m wide), mainly for chilling/sleeping purposes but also for a bit of jumping fun every now and then.

I remember seeing a camp with a 3-4m wide trampoline in 2009 where some of the volunteers weren't too happy about it but they didn't ask the owners to demount it.

thank you!

I saw a group of girls sleeping on one just like the one you're describing last year in Area C. They put a giant tent on top of the trampoline, so they got themselves a 'cave' approximately 1 meter above ground. So I guess it's legal.. But don't know for sure..

Hi muoe

The Camp Codex states that anything that falls into the "small, lightweight materials" category you're allowed to bring to the camp site.

http://roskilde-festival.dk/fileadmin/user_upload/documents/Camp_Codex_2012_UK.pdf

Pavillons are specifically allowed because we want you guys to be able to create a communal area in your camp, but they are also the only space consuming material allowed for communal purposes, so I'm afraid trampolines are not allowed. And even if they were, you would be asked to take it down as soon as the camping areas start to fill up.

The alternative is to apply for a spot in Dream City - conviniently located in H this year - where you can create some pretty far out things - and you're allowed to bring building materials.

Regarding the fact that some guests had a trampoline last year: We have a recurring issue, where guests are told different things by the service guards (e.g. the ever returning question about tarp) and I understand how frustrating it can be that some people are allowed to do/bring stuff while others are not. We try to educate the volunteers but some (mis)information always slip by.

If it turns out that we for some reason will allow trampolines this year, I will get back to you, but assume for now that they are not allowed.

Hi guys, thanks for the contructive replies. Steen - would it be allowed if we can argue that the trampoline is not taking up space (there will be tents above/under the trampoline which is only 3m across). It is very useful in case of heavy rain etc.

Hi Piraten and muoe

The point with a tent on top of the trampoline is interesting and we have discussed it internally.

There are these "trampoline tents" (google it - I had no idea they existed) which is basically a tent on a trampoline mount.

We have previously allowed these on the camping area - and will continue to do so - but we ask that you dismantle the springs and replace them with laces.

You can then avoid heavy rain and use the area underneath for storage. I would advise you not to place tents all the way under the trampoline because of the obvious safety concerns.

I hope this is an acceptable compromise icon_smile.gif
