We've just had official notification from the Yass Region Fire Control Officer:
THERE WILL BE NO FIRES AT FESTIVAL. No camp fires, no cooking fires, no bardic circle fire.
You are allowed covered candles, gas cookers, enclosed weber-style BBQs, lanterns. No official word on candles.
We have argued strenuously for this not to happen, but the steward team has no influence in this matter. We apologise greatly for the inconvenience we know this will cause and trust in the versatility of the populace of Lochac.
Any queries please contact Hrothgar.
Yours in service,
