FOREST WAR IS HAPPENING!!!!! Many of you are probably wondering how the fire and travel advisories are affecting us so here is an update. We have the OK from the landowners and have checked with the Forestry department as to how we can cooperate with them and have a fun and safe event. The Shire of Coill Mhor has approved torches and braziers to light up our whole event safely. Please bring only hand-held enclosed lanterns for your personal use. Please bring water buckets and fire extinguishers – the more we have the better. We need to use EXTREME caution when travelling on the gravel road to and from the site. Go slowly and most importantly DO NOT drive on the grass. The heat from your exhaust can cause a fire. If you have to pull over to allow a vehicle to pass -have someone get out and walk behind the car to make sure you have not caused a spark. The site itself is very lush and green and we have a beautiful lake. If we are all very careful we will have a fabulous event.
