Posted:A world record is recognised by guiness as being an official record attempt. Unless this gathering next year is being applied for as a record attempt it will not be recognised as one by guiness.
Perhaps if 'everyone' is going to be there then maybe it should be applied for.
Guiness will even pay for people to attend.

We have made enquiries to this effect, in fact have interest by ch 7 to promote it and film it officially. As yet we have not heard back from guiness as to whether there is an official record to break, so why not make one!

the record would be the most number of people fire twirling at the one venue at the same time.

Posted:I admit that I am not a guiness book fan ... not much against it, but not much for it either ...

HOWEVER, if that could help promote / organize the convention, then i'm gonna email our organizing group about that....
But would Ch 7 (australian ?) go to NZ for that ?

Dates ? still not completely decided but ihghly possible to take place first week of february 2003

Posted:Because no record exists, 10 people would even do.
But seriously, it is all about making the attempt, and satisfying the requirements that GWR ask to verify this attempt. If there is going to be plenty of kru at this Gathering, why not give it a go. I had initially had the ide to try it here in Brisbane and base an outdoor festival around it. However this seems to be getting done in NZ. If the organisers are interested, perhaps they should drop me a line. I can't afford the time to chase it up.
