We appreciate the difficulties international players may face with transport to the event, and in bringing camping equipment by plane. We are working on ways to make this as simple (and affordable) as possible for everyone, and will update you via the Facebook group.
Sleeping on base
As Stow Maries Aerodrome has only just been pressed into service as a temporary sector control station, the bunk rooms are not yet operational. There will be space for bell tents if you wish to camp In Character, and a concealed area for modern tents if you want to camp Out of Character. We will be providing a small number of bell tents - if you wish to reserve space in one, please contact the organisers.
There is limited indoor space for camp beds, etc. in the crew room. If you need one of these for mobility/medical reasons, please contact the organisers.
Sleeping off base
WAAF were often billeted with local families near the base, travelling in for their shifts. If you would like to sleep in a real bed, the following hotels / B&Bs are available:
NB: There will be no Time Out call on Friday night, but nor will any plot events be scheduled between 00:00 and 08:00 on Saturday.
Toilets & Bathrooms
There are Men’s and Women’s toilets in the Mess, and in the office block in front of the White Hangar. There is a Disabled toilet in the main offices/museum, accessed via the Crew Room.
There are no showers on site.
Wing And A Prayer is catered by Conspiracy Catering, who can be found at @LARPcatering on Facebook.
All meals on Friday and Saturday will be In Character, which means rationing is in effect! The menu from Run 1 was as follows; expect similar for this run.
There will be period-appropriate cakes and biscuits available at any time in the Mess, along with tea and coffee. Both cow’s milk and rice/oat milk is provided.
If you wish to bring additional snacks, drinks or any alcohol, you are welcome to do so. We ask that only period-appropriate food and drink be brought into in-game areas. And remember that being drunk on duty is a serious offence!
