It is with deep sadness that the POX team has made the decision that POX-ECLIPSE 2021 is to be postponed.
As you will all be aware, the Covid situation on the East Coast continues to develop on an almost daily basis and this is our primary causation for the delay. Whilst WA has been lucky so far, the concern over growing infection numbers in other states and reaction to the recent lockdown has become a dark shadow over event planning for at least the next few months. Under the current circumstances, the event would not be able to survive a last-minute cancellation and we would struggle to cover ticket refunds and outstanding invoices, leaving us unable to ever deliver this event in the future. We are hopeful that this decision will enable us to safely deliver the event at a more stable time in the future.
As a team we are disappointed that the event is being delayed, we know that many in the community will be as well. We know that many of you were excited to be heading into the Wasteland, imaginations had been opened for what to create, make and build. We are hopeful that this delay is seen as an opportunity; that it gives you more time to work on your art, costumes, builds, crafting, clans and trades.
Ultimately, we recognised that we would rather delay and bring the event, than continue to push forward and not be able to deliver as intended - breaking our artistic vision and promise to those who have supported us.
Not being able to deliver this event on the original dates is disappointing for all of us.
With regards to the tickets that you currently hold and our plans going forward:
All tickets, bottlecap currency and pre-purchased merchandise to the August event are refundable through Quicket, less the booking fee. We will be bringing you to the Wasteland as soon as we can, and if you are able to hold onto your purchases, we encourage you to do so. All tickets and bottlecaps will remain valid for the event when we are able to hold it. The ticket remains refundable at any point if you change your mind. Refunds are likely to take a couple of weeks, and we appreciate your patience as we work through this process.
We will release more information in the coming weeks about our plans for POX-ECLIPSE going forward.
Again, thank you everyone for your support - those who have bought tickets, seeked to volunteer, intended to bring stalls, build clans or create vehicles. We have loved seeing this community and the art within it grow, and we know that will continue beyond any postponement.
Please don’t let this news knock the wind out of your injector hat, it hasn’t stopped our crew from working. It’s an opportunity to make it bigger and better.
We look forward to seeing you at POX-ECLIPSE, as soon as we can. POX Team 💀
