It always seems to happen - at least at the UK IMMs.

I can't see why its so time consuming.

People already have a ticket, so no money to fiddle with.

It should be just a quick scan with the barcode reader gadget and through you go.

A single width muddy gateway was bound to cause problems.

from reading the comments it seems the issue was positioning people on the campsite, leading to delays back down the line at the entrance, somebody said the actual check-in only took minutes.

Must be honest I’ve never really understood the organizing process behind IMM, who actually runs it etc ?

I can't think of anything worse than a muddy IMM tbh. I wouldn't give you the skin off a Yorkshireman's fart for anything after about 1976 anyway.

No don't see the attraction of a soggy muddy mess to camp in ad wet weather forecast all weekend.

See anyone who is going on Sunday - mini not ready so in a Grey Honda HRV... no doubt with a few spares in hand by the end of the day ;-)

Look out for the chubby bald guy with a pony tail - you'll know it when you see it ;-)

This weekend is also the Cropredy music festival.

When the camping fields open at 7am, the cars file in and the marshalls RUN with the traffic to position the tents.

20,000 people in place in a few hours.

They are all volunteers too.
