Entrance gate


  • The gate will need lights.
  • The gate does not require a permit, but it does need to meet the requirements from the fire brigade with regards to inner sizing.
  • TODO: Power in watts?
  • The gate does not need network.


  • Arrange scaffolding with Netsmurf -> WIP (polyfloyd)
  • Request info for lighting from Donutzz -> WIP (polyfloyd)

The location:

  • At the last place as previous time, at the end of the path through the forest.
  • At the start of the path, before the tree line, there will be signs (each made from 1 board of OSB and two poles) painted and cut in a matching style.

Howto: Prepare

  • The wooden panels that cover the front of the gate are constructed beforehand off site. Volunteers may be able to help.
  • Volunteers would need to be able to saw wood, paint, and possibly assemble lighting.
  • TODO: How many volunteers over how many hours are required?
Scaffolding (rented) is put up by professional builders, according to existing drawing
Wooden panels are designed by Moem, they will cover the front of the gate. 15 boards of OSB are required.
These panels are sawed into shape and painted (off-site)
Some decorative lighting is probably going to be installed.
When the panels arrive on the terain they should be ready to install on the scaffolding
Pieces of lumber (=wood) are attached to the scaffolding with tie wraps
The panels are screwed onto them
Decorative lighting is connected
The gate itself is now ready. Light team can now add other lighting.

Howto: Buildup

  • The builders bring and build the scaffolding. The panels are transported to the terrain by Logistics. Other materials needed: wood, tie wraps, screws.
  • Four volunteers are required
  • Several hours are required. Guesstimate: four.
  • TODO: Provide instructions on how to set up the installation on the event site.

Howto: Teardown

  • Remove decorative lighting and stow away. Unscrew wooden panels, and take them off. Cut tie wraps from scaffolding.
  • The wood can be thrown away (it's easily separated, so it can be recycled).
  • Four volunteers would be good.
  • Faster than buildup. An hour or three should do it.
