This page is part of the Team:Family of MCH2022. Feel free to look around.

MCH2022 is a "DIY" hacker event, organized by volunteers and everyone who visits. If you want to help and make the FamilyZone awesome, please join the team or organize a project. If you want to help at the event, please participate as an angel.

Team Deco tells us that there is a great area south our of the Family Zone to set up a bunch of hammocks:

team deco has a plan for an hammock area, which should be relatively cheap (10 euro per hammock), but they do not have the time/capacity to organize this area.

During the last field day. Redlizard and I were walking on the path at the back end of the Family area and noticed the field on the other end of the path, which has a bunch of trees at convenient distances. This could easily be converted into a hammock area with some interesting lighting. It’s a pretty small and cheapish project ( see: ) but not really a Deco project and we have our hands full as it is. Are y’all interested in doing this?


Aimed at kids aged 10-15.

Add a white sheet and a beamer?


  • Need to get power

Materials required

Materials arranged

  • Stitch1 will provide a beamer + an IKEA container to keep it dry
  • Ronald from OSSO will bring a white screen
  • tuatha will bring the hammocks


  • All materials are arranged / purchased
  • TODO: figure out what connectors are on the beamer
  • TODO: figure out where we get a laptop from to connect

Howto: Buildup

  • All materials will be brought to the field by people traveling in
 - tuatha will bring the hammocks
 - Stitch1 will bring the beamer
 - Ronald will bring the white screen
 - Rope is on the shopping list
 - Various people are bringing an extension cord: ~50m should be enough
 - Laptop still needs to be sorted
  • We will need about 2 people to build this up (tuatha is one of them)
 - Skills needed: Rope tying / knots
  • Buildup will take ~2 hours, rope will be needed to connect the hammocks to the trees
  • Location is to the south of the family field where there are a lot of trees:
  • We will need to find a good spot to hang the white screen from
  • Bring a knife to cut the rope
  • We have 10 hammocks, so will need enough trees to hang these from
 - Taking care of safety, the hammocks should not fall down when somebody sits on them
 - Hammocks need to have easy visibility of the white screen
  • Connect the extension cord to a power socket in one of the tents and roll it out to the location. We need at least 2 power sockets on the field (beamer + laptop).

Howto: Teardown

  • The hammocks can be given away
  • The beamer needs to be given back to Stitch1
  • The extension cord is to be given back to whomever provided it
  • The white screen needs to be returned to Ronald
  • The rope can be thrown away
  • 1 volunteer can break this down
  • Teardown will take ~1h
  • Bring a knife to cut the rope if needed
