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:hehehehe ummm yeah zoom zap screech... umm hehehe I hope I'm not alone on this one redface



it's a group warm-up game where you pass the energy round the circle



so I'd love to see like *everyone* getting together for this group warm up thing...



Zoom passes the energy from side to side round the circle

Zap can zap anyone you like in the circle...

and Screech is a rebound ... bounces the energy back to the person that zoom/zap/scrreched you



pretty simple but heaps of fun biggrin (and makes everyone giggle lots ubblol wink)



yeah gabe ... we, as a group decided not to do bellingen this year ....hopefully we'll do bellingen at another time... it's a beautiful festival.... peace



which means I can come to Adelaide biggrin



so yeah... you can put me on the hoppers attendant list.... just a matter of booking the flight now smile*:.

Pitching a tent ubblol

reminds me one year at Woodford, set up day, after dark, hearing all sorts of squeaks and rants and groans coming from the terrace above me and someone finally saying

* How many jugglers does it take to pitch a tent?! *

ubblol

I won't be able to make it. I thought I'd have a space in someone's car but those plans fell through. And I don't think my parents will be happy about the idea of me travelling for a day on a bus/train, or flying by myself....

I'm so sad right now. frown

Ya, we've got bunches of space for firetoys - and if the boot gets all full up i entirely intend on strapping the leftovers to the roof, lighting them, and then doing an impromptu impersonation of a Brown-stationwagon-shaped Rocket ALL the way to Adelaide! Baby!

Posted:How can I convince my parents to let me come to this thing? They're not really that strict but for some reason they don't want me going. They haven't said no, but they haven't exactly said yes either. It was like a 'we'll work it out when it gets closer' and now that it's closer they don't want to hear anything about it.



I mentioned it ages ago and they seemed fine with it but now that it's getting closer they're not so sure. I enquired about the times and prices of a bus to Adelaide. It's not about the money, it's about permission!



I think all of you who know me should call my parents and say 'Don't worry about it, I'll look after her'. ubblol



It's a shame that it's not a few days later, because I'm 18 on the 5th...and when you're 18 there's that whole 'I can do what I like' thing.

Posted:you can do that at 16, i thought tongue

Plus, you could play the 'i'm going to be 18 soon, and doing all sorts of stuff. you've seen how supportive and friendly the community is, and how will you ever be able to accept my trustworthiness if you don't let me start somewhere. here is as good as anywhere' Possibly even relate it to moving away for uni, but that could be a little tetchy. Not sure if telling them i'll be there would help or not *looks innocent*
