Location: Maenporth Beach



Accomodation: Tregedna Farm Campsite (the other one for those of you who attended Falmouth 1 or 2)



Duration: Thursday evening - Sunday evening



Attractions: A beautiful beach, (hopefully) glorious weather, a big feckin fire, more beer and smoke than you can shake several large sticks at, and a bunch of lunatics playing with fire.



Throw in a few workshops, the obligatory 8 mile hike, and yer talkin' heaven.



For those who have not attended a Falmouth event before, there are videos of the last two here and here.



This may well be the only Falmouth event this year, as us Cornish types will all be going to the Play Festival in August - and recommend that you do too!

There are too make thankyous to mention so thankyou everyone for coming and making it a very memorable weekend, next time, i'm staying in the barn!

P.S. thankyou Wild Child for turning off all the lights when i fell asleep on the sofa hug

Wow - Great weekend. Sorry to shoot off so early and miss everyone - moving house is approching quicker than it should and it's about time i got my arse in gear. Some quick memories:

Teddy poi - the best poi ever. Van - can i have Monsters Inc ones please!
UCOF - love that smiley ball of hugs.
Gelfing and Beth - thanks for the tea

Wind breaker boys - how i love boys that can break wind so effectively

Mass burn was lush. Just wish i could have been spinning and bystanding at the same time though!

Brad - thanks for the amazing fires and the bacon nan bread. Sorted me out a treat.

Mags - Never take a piece of wood with "DO NOT TAKE" written on it as Brad gets very upset.

Skully - you're MAD.

Durbs - The Durbs seat kept my arse extremley damp free although i did think it was your skinning up table at first!

Two other things: Crustaeon Porn and 25 staffs!

I'm gonna try and link my 360 degree photo up and when i do i'll post it.....

Thanks Guys hug

Gayle.....!

Hello everyones wave

Thanks for an absolutely brilliant time - it was great to meet you all and you're all so talented and friendly and lovely.

Thanks to Mags and Sarah and everyone I met who made it such a happy place biggrin

Hope to make it to the next one... bounce
