From Future's End Wiki
Future's End Mission 6, 19th-21st October 2018, will run at Blackwell Adventure - Pike's Pool, which is a branch of Blackwell Adventure in Worcestershire. Below is a map of the site which has areas relevant to Future's End marked on it.
Site Address: Pikes Pool, Pikes Pool Lane, Burcot, Bromsgrove, B60 1LJ
We have developed a good relationship with the site we use and a large part of that is because we ensure that the site is kept in a tidy and functional order during the course of our events. As such, we ask that our players all do thier part to make sure that they pick up their used NERF darts and keep the campsite tidy. Should a faction camp be left in an untidy state there may be sanctions placed on group or faction IC resources at the next event.
We will provide bin bags for players to use - these will be available from GOD.
Players must take rubbish and recyling to the skip area at the centre of site rather than leaving them in camp for someone else to clean up.
If you're unsure of where to find the skip, please ask a member of crew.
While Future's End is not responsible for maintenance issues such as faulty facilities, we are able to get in touch with site management to ensure these issues are resolved so please bring them to our attention.
Facilities, Accessibility and Mobility
The camp is situated on a slight slope, which steepens towards the faction's dropping off point. There have been issues at the site in the past with cars being unable to make it back to the car park once they have driven onto the field.
We will not allow cars on site if we believe that there is a chance of them getting stuck.
If this is the casee will try and make arrangemetns to help players get kit from the car park to their camp.
There is a stand pipe to the left of the main gate as you enter the field.
The camp is situated right next to it's dropping off point and, as such, cars are not allowed on the grass except in exceptional circumstances. Due to the fact that it has flatter ground and is in closer proximity to the car park and facilities, we recommend the Alpha faction to those with mobility issues so they mught have an easier, more comfortable event.
Drinking water is available from the sinks on the outside of the crew hut.
Toilet and Shower Facilities
These are available in the main block next to GOD and the Bar.
If you are in Alpha and have mobility issues that mean you cannot make your way to the main toilet block during the day, please make one of the Game Team aware on arrival on site and we will endeavour to make special arrangements for you.
The facilities within Alpha camp are closed to players during Time In are because they are part of the crew room.
There is very limited car parking availbale at Pike's Pool, so we ask out players to please car-share where possible and try and park considerably and in line with any guidance of crew.
Primary partking is available at P1 (below GOD).
There are drop off areas available for both factions:
Alpha - P4
Omega - P2
Parking in faction car parks is limited to those with a Blue Badge or other special circumstances. Please speak to a member of crew if you believe this applies to you.
Leaving Site During An Event
We appreciate that there will be those that have a need to leave site during an event, either because they are staying off site or need to go shopping.
If you think you will need to leave site for whatever reason, please inform a member of crew and they will do their best to ensure you are parked somewhere you will be able to get out from. We cannot guarantee to make these arrangements for everyone so would ask that anyone wishing to do a shopping run considers doing one before hitting site.
We are able to loan out fire barrells and stands to those who wish to cook (on the understanding that they are emptired, cleaned and returned at the end of the event) or you may bring your own freestanding fire pit.
We do not allow ground fires on site.
Please bear in mind you must bring your own firewood and not remove dead wood from the site.
There are also several nearby takeaways (pizza, chinese, chip shop) and some offer delivery to site.
