Can everyone read the below and pass it the gist of its contents to those who don't have access to the internet please.

Although me and the rest of the set up crew will be on site when you arrive we are not going to be able to supervise everyone pitching their tents. Please make sure you leave the appropriate distance between your tent and your neighbours or you WILL be asked to move it.

We almost lost our fire pit at the last event because it was left unattended. I don't want to have to go through the embarrassement of being the one faction singled out for bad fire safety again. If you leave a lit BBQ or fire unattended, even if it's in a half barrel drum- don't be surprised if it's been put out when you return!

·Each camp should have fire extinguishing facilities i.e. bucket of sand and bucket of water (provided) located in a recognisable and easily reachable location, preferably near the fire pit.
·A stocked and serviceable First Aid kit (provided) should be in a recognisable and easily reachable location or with a designated First Aider.

Umm Does this following line:

"Oil-based exterior lanterns are not be used either internally or externally due to the potential of oil splashing if they knocked over. "

Mean that paraffin (oil) lanterns are NOT now allowed to be used?

If this is the case, then this will mean most of the wolf groups will not be able to light their IC areas?

Please can someone clarify this please?

We've received clarification.

It's okay externally if they're contained and sealed, with no risk of
spillage (at all), but the LT strongly recommend them being used as little as possible.

Which means that if they find one on its side, still lit and unattended, with too large a flame, unsafe etc etc within the faction it will mean we will be singled out for unsafe fire safety....... again! :(

So, I would prefer it if you could find an alternative or be very, very careful with them please and don't use them within tents.
