Looking for a fix for Post Potter Depression?

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
A serious condition has attacked the Harry Potter Fen! Post-Potter Depression (also known as Potter Withdrawal) has been running rampant through the Harry Potter Fen since the release of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows. If you have experienced any of the following symptoms over the past six months then you may be suffering from the devastating condition!

* Lack of appetite (mostly due to a lack of British and Halloween themed foods)
* Lack of sleep (mostly due to a lack of ability to turn off your computer in case The Leaky posts a new article)
* Lack of interest (in things NOT HP related)
* Addiction to LiveJournal, InsaneJournal, Myspace, and/or DeviantArt
* Over abundant use of terms like "Muggle", "Pureblood", and "Mudblood" to describe people
* A sorrowful lack of *SQUEE*

If any of these symptoms describe you then you have come to the right place! Wrockstock has developed a brand new, highly effective, low side effect treatment for Post-Potter Depression! It's sort of like a 12-step program, but with fewer steps, and is therefore easier!

Step 1: Make regular visits to the Wrockstock Forum to meet up with other Potter Fen suffering the same as you!

Step 2: Make your way to the Wrockstock Myspace to refill your Potter-Music-Gage by listening to all the great bands that will be wrocking the Ozarks this year!

Step 3: Hands shaking with the need to pick up DH yet again? Try avoidance therapy! Replace the book with the Wrockstock DVD and soon enough you'll have completely forgotten about that horrid epilogue! Watch all the great footage- ooh and ah at the exciting Quidditch match, wrock out to your favorite bands, cry tears of JOY for once at the group hugging!

Step 4: For those times when you feel like Dementors are breathing down your neck, Wrockstock has developed the perfect solution: Awesomely Warm Wrockstock Hoodies with built in Patronus Charms! Check out the Official Wrockstock Store for everything you need to boost your defensive skills, from Patronus Hoodies to spirit boosting pins and stickers!

Step 5: Make your Reservations and buy your tickets to Wrockstock! When the soul crushing realization that you'll never be eagerly awaiting another HP book manages to surface once again, you'll be able to beat it back like a pro-Quidditch player with the knowledge that you're eagerly awaiting the best show of the year!

Just follow these five easy steps and before you know it Post-Potter Depression with be a thing of your past! Trust me, I'm not only the Spokesperson for the Wrockstock 5 Step Plan, I'm a successful user! ^_^

Having money troubles?

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
We understand. That's why we've done everything in our power to make Wrockstock affordable for everyone. Erockstock is the cheapest HP event going, and open to all ages, but there are ways still to make it even more affordable. The first and foremost step would be to find some roomates! It not only helps to cut down the price per person, but you'll make friends that will last a life time!

There are several groups of people who are willing to share their cabin or room with you. Our little family is growing everyday, and we'd love for you to be part of it! Lots of people shacked up together last year, to great success... many formed lifelong friendships with thier cabinmates. Sharing a room at Wrockstock not only allows more people attend, but it saves money.

A Guest Room by yourself will cost $149 a night.
but a Guest Room shared with 3 other people will cost you $84 a night.

A Loft Suite by yourself will cost $169 a night.
but a Loft Suite shared with 5 other people will cost you $78 a night.

A Family cabin by yourself ... well that's not allowed, but it would cost $299
but a Family cabin shared with 9 other people will cost you $83 a night.

Don't forget... all your meals are included with your room price along with use of all the fun stuff there is to do at Trout Lodge when we're not rocking our faces off in the Room of Wrockquirement. We'd hate for someone to mis out on Wrockstock because they felt they couldn't afford it, when there are so many people just waiting for the chance to share a room with you! To find some room mates, check out the Travel and Transportation Board at the Wrockstock Fourms!

As a side note, I found roomates in this exact fashion last year. I didn't think I could afford Wrockstock last year but several of the awesome people going came to my resuce and offered me a spot in their cabin. I was brand new to wrock, and to any sort of convention for Harry Potter, and the people in my cabin were great help making sure that I understood everything and that I felt comfortable with them all. The best thing about rooming with them, though, is that I am still close to several people from our cabin. We really did make friendships that will last a lifetime, and I can't wait to do it all over again this year.

Attention all Wrockstockers!

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
Wrockstock has got a Valentine's gift for all of you!

With our new online registration system up and running, Wrockstock Pass sales, bus ticket sales, and NEWTs sign-ups will open on Valentine's day. Why then, you ask? Why, because we love you all and want each and everyone of you to be our Valentine! So this is our gift you you: an easy way to register for Wrockstock!

Registration will be open until April 15th, 2008- some exceptions may be able to be made for stragglers, but only if you email us and ask VERY nicely (and buy us some chocolate).

Remember that you must have a reservation at Trout Lodge before attempting to buy your Wrockstock Pass. Without that reservation, your order will be rejected and your money refunded. Also, you will need to have purchased your Wrockstock Pass before being aloud to check in to the lodge that weekend, so if you've already made your reservation don't forget to get your Pass as well! As an added bonus for everyone, we're combining check-in for Wrockstock with check-in for the lodge this year so that it's one easy step- how's that for love, eh?

For those of you who have not made your reservation at the lodge yet, not to fear! The lodge is only about 1/4 full, leaving plenty of rooms, suites and available. Be careful, though, and don't wait too long to make your reservation- every week more and more people are making their reservations and we'd hate to see you miss out. Reservations for the lodge will remain open until April first, at which point any remaining space will be offered to the Muggles on their waiting list for that weekend, which means that there's no leeway for stragglers on this one.

Don't forget that we still have DVD's and lots of other great merchandise on sale! You can find the DVD's at Our Marketplace, and all the funny items we could come up with at Our Store. And, of course, every purchase made ultimately benefits the Harry Potter Alliance.

Well, that's all for now ladies and gents! Much love and Happy Valentine's Day from all of us at Wrockstock!

Yay! Merch!

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
There's a new shop full of brand new year-round merchandise with a few things specific to WS07 and some stuff geared towards the best weekend you'll have this summer... kickin' it with 14 bands at Wrockstock 2008.

We priced this stuff as cheaply as possible, and want you to know that the profits from this merchandise go to the daily running of Wrockstock, from the early planning stage, all the way thru that weekend. The more merch we sell, the more of the money we collect from tickets can go to the Harry Potter Alliance to fund the good work they do in our world.

If we could, we'd just pass the basket like at church, but you guys are spread far and wide... so if you want to help to keep Wrockstock growing and getting better every year, please buy a Wrockstock Spooktacular DVD, a T shirt, a button, a bumper sticker or a tote bag.

DVD's will be shipping in early February, all other merch is shipping immediately...
Link to buy DVD's:

This year’s Wrockstock will again benefit the Harry Potter Alliance and be held at YMCA Trout Lodge in Potosi, Missouri.

The dates for 2008 are Memorial Day weekend, May 23rd-26th.

That means we’ll be wrockin’ the Ozarks starting that Friday and going until Monday afternoon. That’s a whole day longer than last year!
