WOW i guess im lucky that in the past 3 years i havent stayed at the helendorf. But this year town was kinda quite and only action was at the Helendorf because last year the whole town was a mess... as far as the tits thing im with most people here but u cant hate %90 of VW owners.... id rather be drunk and partying with cars then be like freaking Honda kids trying to race and put bunch on lives in danger.... and highwaystar garage guys dont even own euros. Yeah manny drinks a lot but we all do. And hell no helen will almost never shoot this event down.... because its got nothing compared to the mess thats done there on OKTOBERFEST.
I always stay outside of town and walk into town so that my car stays away from the madness. One night of partying is not worth a huge dent or a scratch on the car.
I showed up late in a bunny costume and my friend in the banana outfit and we were with another friend, his gf and my gf. Those guys asked our gf's and I was not really bothered by it that much just bc I know my gf is too classy to ever pull a stunt like that. They didn't touch her or disrespect her so I had no reason to fight...Although I must say I thought it would have been pretty funny if a dude in a bunny suit started ****
Close the roads between Alpine Village Inn and the Helendorf (maybe loosen up the open container laws?) and people can still get their cars if needed, but it also makes it so people can't cruise on that back road. But that would be fine, really- that road ought to be shut down during the show anyways.
Awesome to know that you was in the suit, Will
I posted it in the funny thread, but its Helendorf content, so it goes here too.
i stayed in cleveland... i will do so again next year.
My one gripe and glad i didnt have a car or stay at the helendorf was the smashing of bottles and throwing a tube on cars. Have some ****ing respect people.
I think the Helendorf, like the convention center during H2Oi, is just a center point for all the craziness of the weekend so everything that goes down makes the entire event seem a lot crazier than it really is.
Why did people have to keep driving through the parking lot? If you have any idea what goes down there you either park your car and leave it or park somewhere else.. driving through or parking up front pretty much guarantees your going to have people, beer or both on your car at some point during the night. I would never park my car in the upper lot there.
Not sure if they did it in the past but they somewhat limited the number of cars in the helendorf by only allowing "residents" to park.
Although i got to park there no problem, i had some friends say they were turned away if they didnt have a parking pass.
In years past anyone could just go in and park, the crowd, cars and party seemed smaller at the helendorf this year. Looks like its more spread out and people just party where they are staying instead of going to the helendorf to do so.
We were at a cabin about 4 miles out and it was nice to get away.
Glad I stayed in a cabin in the gated community. myself and 20 other people in our cabin stocked up on beer and alcohol and had our own personal DJ and partied all night without any problems from neighbors or security. Will be staying there again next year for sure.
I stay at the Helendorf specifically to PARTY HARD but when peoiple are throwing and breaking bottles thats just bull****.. friday night was way better... give respect to get respect..cops there are way cooler then anywhere else.. by me they would of been beating people down with that ****.. keep it real party hard just dont trash places
