ok well its confirmed.



IVe booked the date in, and so now we have a lovely big Hall with a Kitchen and toilet block, along with a big ass campign area and flat area to use for the weekend! sept 30, Oct 1, 2 and 3. Its in a beautiful location only 5 minutes from the closest Public Transport and Supermarket, or 25 minutes by car from the Adelaide GPO. We can arrange transport to and from the site from the Bus stop given a bit of notice.



We've also bought a big ass markee to use as a 2nd learning area if the workshops get too big to fit in the hall.



I was thinking we could also have a bit of a party on the saturday night if people were able to chip in for a PA...



so yeah - if you are interested in something or doing something else - say so!



and yes - there will be a large campfire, and a big fire spin.

does your dad have a fax at work? maybe i could fax him something on my work letterhead (which all official & government-y) to say i'll look after ya! biggrin i could call your folks? tell them to call rougie's folks! i took good care of her at woodford last year!! biggrin

what is your parents email address? i think we should flood them with emails saying "PLEASE let steph come to common ground cos it just won't be as fun and there'll be lots of upset hippies in adelaide going where's steph she should be here and having fun with us!" rolleyes yes?

ubblol

do not meddle in the affairs of dragons, for you are crunchy and good to eat!

if at first you do succeed, try not to look too astonished!

Lol are you being serious?! Would you really email them saying something like that? That would be funny. I think you should. Haha!

It's mainly got to do with yr 12 and studying etc.

mm.. part of history!!

i'd email them if you wanted me to wink

just yep, got to tread carefully and not let anything get out of hand.. i think you're really quite responsible miss, so long as your studies are coming along well, i think it'd be a well earned retreat.

oh, thats another idea. Start acting increasingly eccentric as it gets closer, and hint that a holiday would be really nice, cos yr 12's getting really stressful

And if none of the above supposed "ideas" bear fruit, i think you should go about constructing a makeshift Hot Air Balloon from old sheets and gas bottles and whatnot that you find lying around in an old warehouse and then FLY yo' ass to adelaide! smile

hi, since this event is getting so close, i thought i should stop lurking and ask about things like who i should ask for tickets to common ground or just to get added to the Hoppers going list, so i can get bus/plane type tickets.

Well, on friday coming up, all my major pieces and assignments are due at once. I'm going to wait til after all that major work is out of the way until I ask them. Holidays start then too. On the Saturday or Sunday I'll let you all know.

I think at the moment there is about a 70% chance which is better than nothing.

Thats a but tricky with the new regulations. Have to see how tight they are.
Maybe carry a screwdriver to take wicks off if they get cranky. Now new wicks?????? confused
