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.

Hmmm, liability insurance eh? I don't know how far into researching it you guys are, but I really, really hope that it doesn't make the event a legal impossibility. The need for public liability insurance, DA's etc for doofs here in Sydney make it really hard to do parties the legal way.

psssssssst brett thats pirate not scottish tongue

ed you bring the hippos ill bring the ..... racing? ubblol

as for liability insurance i think we just need it for the fire show as hall has general public liability (otherwise they couldnt hire it out at all)

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourself, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous and talented? Who are you NOT to be?

hehe yeah it would be cool. unfortunately the cost of getting international expert teachers would double or triple our forcast budget - and that would have to be put onto the ticket price. I think that would reduce access to people on marginal incomes - and turn Common Ground into Uber Ground. Anyone who went to both Uber and CG would tell you they were quite different events, and I for one want to maintain the diversity smile

Me too! Hear Hear to diversity!

Uberimporting teachers will have to remain a rarity if affordability is an issue at all.. which is is of course.. tyranny of distance and all that...

also, diversity for the actual mood of the event, which for people like me, who dont end up doing workshops all that much and really just want to catch up and hug people... Common Ground is really more my thing.

besides. I will bring more bubble mix to CG for you BrettStar.... Promise!

Currently on the right side up of the world.

there are insurance issues that are proving to be very difficult to sort out relating to spinning fire as its not covered by the halls public liability insurance, all insurance companys handball fire insurance questions to duck to cover, who only do performers insurance and wont do events. without insurance we cant hire the venue hence the making sure its happening first.

there is a possibly way around this by taking out employers insurance and getting everyone who attends to sign a volunteers form, but this still needs to be investigated properly.

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourself, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous and talented? Who are you NOT to be?
