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.

the bus to the city from the airport runs, apparently, every 15 minutes.

I don't know which bus you'd take from the city to the site, though.

Oh, and this in a little while ago:



min/max forecast temperatures for the weekend:

11/20 (fri)

11/23 (sat)

12/25 (sun)



So, provided the sky doesn't fall on us, it should be a nice weekend smile



be great if this wind buggered off though.

*hates wind*

umm... have you brisbane people considered a mini bus?

i've used these guys before:

Des's minibus

got us where we wanted to go and cheaper than a taxi... and as they don't have seatbelts in them i wouldn't think taj would need a seat...

limo's sometimes work out cheaper than taxi's too at $100 and hour ish for a 10 seater...

(with those you can stop at whatever supermarkets you want without running up the meter *shrug*)

...there's some lateral thinking for you.

For anyone who's interested- Had a quick test burn of the shellsol d70 (fuel) today, which is pretty much the fuel supply available (drop DragonFury a PM if you've got purchase enquiries)- pretty good orangey flame (seemed spiky while spinning in windy conditions), burns relatively cool, not noticeably smoky on wicks (conditioned on d60). Takes a while to light, but burns well and for a while. biggrin

Ry i think that's the fuel bec and i use for shows... nice stuff... not sure about the D70 part... dose that mean it's harder to light than D60? .... coz then maybe it's not the same as the stuff we get... sounds good though i'd be happy with that biggrin

Gita... thanks SO much for the lift to the airport... I didn't rooolly wanna bother *another* poor soul for a lift that early in the morning smile

OH my... better start parking ubbloco ubblol ubbloco

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?

I am now in adelaide. What time are people going to be there from? I might need to drop stuff off at the site prior to voyaging into airportland and picking up melburpians and/or brisvegans. How many/are there any bris/melb people that want picking up? You have until about 7:30amish tomorrow morning to either pm me or post in here. I hope to hear from people by then. If you dont get to pm me by then, uhh, try possibly pming dragonfury, and asking him to give it to you to contact me.

And yes, roar, i'll be there to pick you up. It is[/] 9am on saturday, isn't it? tongue

by the way. Taj is not coming. It was becoming a massive headache to try to arrange all the things that would be needed (bottles, nappies, clothes, stroller, portacot, steriliser, formula etc etc) so he will now be having a holiday with his nanna and Poppy for a few days.
I know this may be a let down for some of you who were looking forward to meeting him, but for his sake and ours we just couldnt do it. frown redface sorry.
