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.

Heya stat! the few times i've been attending Sunday spinning in recent months, i've not seen people arrive until after 8pm.
Please note that the winter location is under a bridge, where twirlers have tended to gather at this time of year.
There is a map here: https://www.spinferno.com/gallery/?g2_itemId=21664

Just to help you on the way, here is some mee-goreng on a catapult:

I'm thinking not much will happen between now and new years, but lets see if we can get a big group together for a Sunday in January.

With that much warning noone should be able to find an excuse not to come!!

Ummmmmmm. I pick ROUGIE!!

...and maybe Sharnie if she's around.

There'll possibly be a Jarle back by then, and we may be able to scrounge up a Petey, a Cel, a Brenn and maybe even a Bonnie or Bill.

Its been years since i have played properly in the Melbourne fire scene, But i met some people last weekend who told me to come down, and it was great fun, just like i remember. A bit sad i had to leave early before anyone lit up though i cant wait for warmer better weather to head out again

The Prince cosplayer that walked through lied to us though about a fairy picnic in the distance tongue2 all that riding around and nothing to be found

Hi, I'm new! I don't spin fire but have constructed my own electric double staffs...

Was meaning to come to a meet in 2010 but sourcing the parts proved tricky and basically had to wait till I was in Akihabara to finish them... but now I'm ready to join in!!! smile

here's my UV double staffs:

Can't really see the true light because cameras don't actually pick up UV light, but you get the idea smile

Looking forward to 2011! and if you see me at rainbow serpent, come teach me something new!!! hahaha tongue2

Thanks to islisis for the inspiration and help with construction.
