hey this sounds pretty sweet- but i'm a poor college kid with no transportation- if there's anyone heading there from my area (New Paltz,NY), give me an email- i should be able to help pay for gas and tolls, but taking a bus/train is just too much. tekknogurrl@hotmail.comthanks!ykaterina, this sounds like an awesome way to spend a weekend!

>>i figured it out: the RSVP addy is: fire-admin@list.atg.com...it's typo'd on the website, we'll fix it this weekend!-----whooooooohoooooo!i'm so excited!by the way, to anyone who was reading the environmental threads, i talked to the guy who works our fields (he worked them with the last owners, too) about the effects of the kero on the fields...he said not to even think about it. of course if we spilled a whole bucket it would be a problem, but because we're talking about drops (albeit many of them), and they'll be spread out, and becaues he plows the field under each season to 12", the effect is going to be practially non-existant. yay!i'll check what's up with that email list - it may be set not to accept non-members or something silly...have i mentioned i'm excited? smile[This message has been edited by ykaterina (edited 31 March 2001).]

I hear you from Aus frown I am From New Hampshire, and live only an hour or two from the fest, But I am In Alaska now. But Hey Im comming home at the end of May for a couple of weeks maby we can get together. Hey I was wondering, I met five (Or so)girls at Ragee Fest in VT two summers ago, who spinn fire. I saw them, and had my pois there too. We spunn at the bottom of the field near the stage. They had pois made out of stuff they found at the dump, and learned in Mexico some where. They live in VT some where north. I would love to get a hold of them. If you read this and it sounds felmiler write and say HI smileSki Ckristian

Hey there ykaterina smileI live in Franconia, or i should say that my mother does now. (But I grew up there) I got my name by combinding what I do with my name grin I am a ski bum in Alaska, but I have lived in montana as well. I teach a class here in Alaska, and it is a Big Hit! I have been teaching The Art of Poi fot a few years now, and am always looking for new moves from everyone, even my students! smile I believe that anyone can spinn, but I don't teach just anyone. I am VERY PICKY in who I teach. Fire is a Very Powerful Thing, and in the wrong hands can be used in the Wong Ways! If you know what I mean. smile Talk to you later.
