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.

Durbs, how come you never bring your lady ANYWHERE with you yet you might be in Oz with her at the right time for this?! I think Mrs Durbs doesn't really exist, or, is only let out once a year for a special treat! tongue

i might be able to help out with basic breakdancing by then - I'm learning myself, but i'll ask the guys teaching me if they'll come along.



Edit:

Oh, and is it byo kero, or donations, or is fire not good, or did you say that in the main post, and i missed it?



any ideas on costs at this stage? i'm going to need to plan finances around this to make it.



Edit 2:

And, given that i'll most likely be driving down, i can bring some/most of my audio bits and pieces. its not a PA, but there's enough stuff for some noise there, at least.



Edit 3:

Um, to prevent confuzzlation, can i suggest highlighting the changes to the list, by bolding, or **ing the one you change? or even just putting the one that you want to do down, then having a central updated list?

Just food for thought



Fourth and final edit (i hope) ubblol :

If anyone from WA is bussing/driving/not going directly from their town to adelaide, and going through/near whyalla and/or port augusta, drop me a line, and i'll try to organise lifts/meetups/something for ease of getting down there.

Durbs - if you and Mrs Durbs came down that woudl be super awesome. Im sure you could also help with various stuff - contact in particular, and perhaps some other stuff? we are encouraging people to share whatever it is that they can do.

adelaide hills close to winter can get a little chilly, if i remember rightly.
In any case, warm clothes probably wouldnt hurt. I'm guessing it's supply your own cooking bits and pieces?

Um, i can possibly supply a 4 man dome tent, but that'll depend on mums mood. I can't see any massive problems tho.

What about mcalcohol?is this a drinking included event, or would that be too dangerous re fire etc?

ok - should be able to make it. how long is it actually booked for? - i was thinking of taking friday and monday off work - so could be in adelaide from Friday through till Monday.

how bout a rope-dart workshop? biggrin

Will happily help out with any contact staff session - [though I suspect it will turn out to be more of a general jam and ideas swaps session...]

umm can probably help with some beginners contact juggling as well.

Great idea Josh!
