Open campfires banned from The Gathering of the Juggalos due to intense heat. THURSDAY JULY 12, 2012 5:45PM

What level of stupidity does one have to have to not be able to have a camp fire.
Secondly how dumb are they to issue fire warnings for a event planed nearly a month away from the original post ??

Alright Juggalos and Juggalettes. Those of you who are Gathering-bound need to listen up! Apparently Cave-In-Rock, IL and surrounding areas have been under an intense heat-wave as of late. That means that they are taking all precautions necessary to ensure that everybody has a safe week at the Gathering, and that the forest surrounding Hatchet Landings stays in tact. What does that mean for all of us? NO CAMPFIRES. Check the post out from JuggaloGathering.com below: Open campfires banned from The Gathering of the Juggalos due to intense heat THURSDAY JULY 12, 2012 5:45PM The summer weather so far has been an absolute scorcher and it’s only going to get worse as time goes on. Because of this there is currently a ban on campfires at The Gathering of the Juggalos. The lack of rain and intense heat has made the grounds of The Hatchet Landings in Cave-in-Rock, IL very dry and campfires are just asking for trouble. For the safety of everyone in attendance and the grounds themselves, we are asking that no one create any open campfires at The Gathering this year. While this is stale, it’s not the worst thing that could happen. FOREST FIRES are the worst thing can happen. To make the best of this situation you simply have to plan ahead. To light your camping area bring extra electric lanterns, flashlights, and lots of batteries. To stay warm at night if the temperature drops bring extra hoodies, blankets, and warm clothing. And to cook your food you may bring a barbeque, but PLEASE be safe and use caution when cooking! It wouldn’t be a bad idea to have a small fire extinguisher or bucket of water nearby just in case! These rules aren’t set in place to give anyone the bone. They are created to look out for you, our family, and our home away from home at Hog Rock. We thank you in advance for your cooperation.
