Posted: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.

Posted:Okay, I've had quite a look into badges.



and there are some great ideas around, but obviously, we're going for something good but relatively cheap.



Matt, sounds cool, but I think pin-on badges are the way to go: they stay put, are not easily lost, are cheap to make [using my various sources.. muahaha wink]



Medusa: definately. I've just designed some. I think it's best to go with standard BAM [badge-a minit - brand], which are round, plus I have access to a few machines and things here in Adelaide.

I'm also putting everyone's Avatars on the badges, to make things more exciting! [so Pete, hurry up and find one!:D]



cost? should be under a dollar, most likely covered under the money chipped in for the weekend, i'll find out more.



This means I'll need everyone to send me exactly what they want to have on their badge so that there are no mistakes in spelling, preferences, etc.



Real Name:

Hop Name:

Background colour preference:


Avatars are pretty much the right size and everything as they are, unless you'd like to send a better quality, though keep in mind they have to be relatively small.



here's a little preview



Getting everyone's details and preferences in advance ensures for better organisation, which makes everything run smoothly, which applies to everything really smile



either PM or email is cool [louise.myers@gmail.com]



which means I guess I've dobbed myself in for the badges ubblol

theyre not even narky about me taking time off left right and centre *hugs my boss*



im excited already lol.



but as for taking the juggling workshops, is there anyone out there that has a supply of balls for people to use? i dont have the faintest idea how many will be needed. ive got about 4 sets (of 3 balls). plus people who already have thier own. that might be enough. if not, do any of you have a little supply you could lend?. juggle



myco: hug thanks again biggrin
