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.

i'd email them if you wanted me to wink

just yep, got to tread carefully and not let anything get out of hand.. i think you're really quite responsible miss, so long as your studies are coming along well, i think it'd be a well earned retreat.

Well, on friday coming up, all my major pieces and assignments are due at once. I'm going to wait til after all that major work is out of the way until I ask them. Holidays start then too. On the Saturday or Sunday I'll let you all know.

I think at the moment there is about a 70% chance which is better than nothing.
