Posted:melbourne has a small but dedicated scene. brisbane's scene is huge. it's because firetwirling is suited to warmer weather and tourism. i should go up there, work the gold coast and the holiday resorts .. waste a coupla years .. should be fun smile

Brisbane's scene is huge.



Brissy's scene isn't as accessible as it used to be, or as apparently huge, since Moonfest. There's still quite a few good people around, just more dispersed.

There were a lot of drunk teenies a few years ago at the Burleigh meet but I hear that's pretty much sorted these days.

Posted:Nifelium:

The meets i've attended in Melbourne have been Southbank/Arts Center and Fitzroy areas. On the whole we haven't had any/many problems with gangs or teenagers or the like. We get the occasional crazy drunk tourist or tramps who have a penchant for causing trouble, but nothing that hasn't been diffused quickly smile

Sorry to hear about your local troubles!

tis the main reason I haven't tried to spin up at the local park; there's a very large open area park withing 50m of my front door and it'd be perfect for a local spin meet, or even just pulling out a stick or two occasionally and setting it on fire, but it'd just be begging for trouble. the area is filled with nutters, drunks and young'ns with nothing better to do than get into trouble.

as others have alluded to; pick your spot, and you're not likely to have too much trouble.

Posted:its not that im worried that much just alot of stupid crap has hapned to me in the city (like the time i saved some guys life after he got bashed and thrown into the yarra at southbank.)

around the burbs my area in articuler theres a few but im actually out there more with even more mates so they jsut stay away. i usally tend to spin reclusivly in a local storm drain actaully or under a local freeway bridge. no one comes by there and no body can see you.

but the city. i feel as though it hates me ubbloco

Posted:In my few forays into more populated areas while spinning people have tended to treat it with admiration and amazement rather than aggression!

The most aggressive situation I've run across was one in which I was demanded to do a show... which I was already doing anyway, so I just threw in some more visually impressive movements and that was pretty much it... I was told to keep it up and the drunkies moved on.
