Weather Watch 2014

There is a large band of rain coming from the Atlantic over the weekend and it continues into the beginning of the event week. The ground down here is already saturated so chances are we will have significant flooding.

As listed on a previous thread this will mainly effect the Christchurch/Bournemouth side of the event and more than likely the route down (A338) from Salisbury in the Fordingbridge area. M3 / M27 route should remain clear but advise leaving at Cadnam/Lyndhurst and coming along the A35 toward Christchurch rather than continuing on the A31 via Ringwood to Picket Post.

As for the trains we have had flooding on the track and fallen trees where the embankments can’t support them anymore due the water. Replacement busses are usually put on :o

As for the site itself, be advised walking over the meadow between lodges will be wet and slippy. So waterproof footwear with good tread is advisable or stick to the paths.

We will update with any road closures around Sunday evening/Monday morning so check back.

Weather

Following communication with Hoburne there are no instances or issues to report on specifically with the park itself. No lodges have gone over the cliff (yet)!

However please remember that we have had an awful lot of rain down here with many road closures. If the rain eases off then we should not have any problems as the water may get a chance to subside.

That said there are no issues coming down from London on the M3/M27 and A34 locally. The majority of the floods are the Bournemouth side of New Milton in the Christchurch area. Specific instances at this time are closing…

  • The Avon Causway
  • Stoney Lane at Burton
  • the Sailsbury Road at Fordingbridge

Local traffic and travel can be obtained if you tune to one of the local radio stations on the day Wave105 is my personal preference and its around 105.2 FM.

LARP/Freeform Booking Instructions

The booking for spaces in this year’s LARPs/freeforms will open next Wednesday 11th December at 8.00pm. Joolz will be comfortably sat by his computer and waiting for your emails. Please only contact him on his Conception email address (larp@conceptionuk.org) and not by other forms of social media messaging as it will help him keep a track of everything and hopefully not miss anyone’s message.

Unlike last year as time is short and Christmas approaches fast he won’t stagger the booking. Please just let him have a list of your 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th or even 5th choices (in order of preference) and he will endeavour to fit you into games as fast as he can. He will then pass on the details to the relevant GMs as the games fill up.

Please feel free to pass this information on to any people you know who might be looking to play in a LARP/freeform at Conception and who might be infrequent visitors to this website. Joolz will also give these details a shout out on Facebook and Google+ hoping to catch as many peoples eyes as possible.

We look forward to receiving your emails next week and getting you into some or all of the great games we have on offer. Thanks once again from Joolz and the other members of the Conception committee to the GMs for their hard work in putting these games together for you all to enjoy.
