Due to weather conditions beyond our control, I am sad to announce that the Wargy/War Collegium will not be held at the KHTI site in Catheys Valley. The revised location is Bollado Park/Tres Pinos
I apologize for the short notice, but after discussions with KHTI, the decision has been made that due to unsafe conditions on the site made by just wet weather, we can not hold the event there this weekend. The ground is just too muddy and they are expecting upwards of 2" of rain before Saturday which will only make it worse.
This is not our usual weather pattern year, probably the wettest we have seen in over a decade.
Improvements will be made to the site prior to Beltane so that this issue will not happen again.
Our backup site for this event, Napa Skyline Park, is also too muddy at the moment to camp at. We are looking for alternatives and any suggestions you may have about a last minute site would be appreciated.
I would like to thank the autocrats, James and Kelsey for all the work they have put into the event and it is my hope that we can find some alternative place for them to run the event.
Please spread the word to everyone you know about this announcement and I will be posting it to as many forums as I can.
Once again, I apologize for the lateness of this post and hope that we can work together to come up with a viable solution in the next day.
