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:I was amazed at your ability to cope with bringing your lovely boy to CG, I always found camping with bambinos tricky, let alone camping with no car in another state.

Posted:Thanks everyone that was right up there on the the-most-amazing-things-I-have-ever-experienced list.
I actually cried on the plane.
And at the airport when I got home.
And if I keep thinking about it now I'll probably start again.

I will get some photos up tomorrow night, I took about a gazillion. Am watching my video of the show now as we speak too... geez we were good!

Goodnight all.

Posted:*sigh* indeed..

I just didn't want to leave! This weekend has been one of the best i've EVER had - was so absolutely fantastic to meet all of the wonderful, wonderful people that i did! ubbrollsmile

The biggest hugs and thanks to EVERYBODY grouphug

The weather was perfect, the workshops ran well and were well organised, any worries we had beforehand were overcome and everyone was so beautiful and easy to get along with that it really felt like a huge family ubblove

will put up some pics once i get them organised and remember a few quotes, of which many have been lost in the sea of Common Ground bounciness bounce

Everything now seems so surreal, to think that at this time yesterday i was frolicking in the long wavy grass and sun on the common.. the tents of various pixies and hippies slowly disappearing.. to leave just the trees and grass moving in the breeze, nothing to suggest to a stranger of the fun that was had - but to those who created it, there's still a trail of sparkles ubblove

will see you all again at some point [surely at CG06 wink]

Love you all, and thankyou once again to absolutely everybody hug hug hug
-Lou
