Posted:Was just wondering, wouldn't it be cool if all the HOPper's in here save some money from today onwards and travel to a suggested country/island and have a global fire gathering in like maybe 2yrs time?

Just a silly idea of mine...*ponders*

Would be a good reason to get out of singapore for me...

Posted:so not to disadvantage anyone who have to travel around the world, while someone else would only have to walk down the street, lets all pay the same price and travel the same distance to the meet.... there only one place that would be fair then - the centre of the earth.

fair?

Posted:so then you are basically saying we can't have a home of poi gathering at all - since we must do it NZ since that is its home, but we can't do it in NZ because of insurance problems...

Actually, this is not true at all. It kept falling apart because there were not enough people who showed a consistant interest in helping to plan it and get it going. It is really hard to plan something that would be awesome when there is a shoe string budget and people saying, "Well, because it is so far away I have to focus on....."
A suitable place was even hard to agree on. Then, every time we took a poll about whether or not there was interest, the constant answer was, "Yeah, but I don't think I could go anyway." That is not exactly a response that would cause a busy group of people to invest time and money into this happening.

Insurance was actually solved and handled by open statements of non-liability.
