Posted:Summer Location: Queen Victoria gardens.



The aim is not for a solely firetwirling night, but a night whereby firetwirlers, jugglers, contact jugglers, diabolo etc can meet. So feel free to bring friends who may be interested.

Night starts at 6pm for all those who are keen to learn. Fire starts after dark 7.00 - 8ish till late!



So.... the location is Queen Victoria Gardens

St. Kilda Road opposite 'National Gallery of VIC' (Old Arts Gallery with spire)

The grassed area near the three raised palm trees. (Look out for the bronze statue hammer thrower)

With only a 5 minute walk over the princess bridge from Flinders Street station.

Here's the map

*WINTER LOCATION*

Under the Princess bridge (Southbank side). Where the Southbank Sundey market happens.

Me and a friend checked out the spinning scene at Luna Park last night, pretty fun and relaxed.



Is there a luna park meeting aswell?

Posted:Saw a bit in the paper about the fire spinning to happen as part of Moomba.. sounds great! I have been talking to some people here about having a big feature spin as part of our RiverFestival. Not possible to have it as part of/before the huge immense fireworks they put on.. may get to do some big shows in parks though. If I can put in a good grant application...would like to actually pay people to play...

Anyway how did it go?

Posted:pleased to meet u orenco.
you are surely one of the most talented twirlers i have seen perform. there is a fluid discipline in your movements; your planes are sqeaky clean, you have talent across multiple disciplines; you have great control over pace.
i hope you learn much from your oz travels - there are twirling workshops at confest!

with your permission, i'd like to publish some photos of your twirling on my firetwirling site smile

Posted:Some of you might remember my really tall rower friend from queensland who came to Sylph's farewell (his name's gareth).

Anyway, he's back in town and possibly going to sunday spinning. I won't be there on account of my boy returning and my parents leaving (going for "missed you/will miss you" drinkies/food), so i'm going to send him (and his girlfriend, Cornelia) along.

Can someone please make them feel loved and welcomed?
