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.

Hey guys, pretty sure I'll be down tonight. But I may need a place to stay. I have been temporarily spooked from late night/early morning driving because I was so close to hitting a roo on Friday driving back!

Does anyone have some spare space? smile hug

Oh roarfire, that sucks!
If I had crash space, I would totally offer it up.

We ended up staying up until 5am on Friday night/Sat morning. It was tonnes of fun and I really enjoyed meeting and hanging out with ya's.

I think Chris and I are hoping to make it down there tonight too. I want to get the chance to see everyone again before I head out in the morning.

hug

Awesome! I love summer! It's great that in 42 days it will be... wait, why am I happy? I'll be freezing in New York *sigh*.

If I build a boat now and start rowing tomorrow, maybe I can make it down there in time.

Hey, Bender, you guys drive into the meet? Where do you park your auto?

If I make a miraculous recovery from illness I just might make an appearance.

Xenologic, head over to the introductions thread, grab a template and tell us about yourself!

I spoke to him last week and I think he's intending on staying in adelaide for a bit longer instead of going to new zealand. Maybe the message didn't get through.
