The more I think about this, the more it becomes a possibility. If I get into Uni it wouldn't start til March.



I could take a little trip up there for say, the Jan Moonfest and stick around for UberOz...or I could go to UberOz and stick around for the Feb Moonfest...

I would be muchlie interested in attending (hopefully with Sherespinner and few others if we can work it smile ) - Road trip from rainbow serpent sounds like a fabulous idea! (heres to fingers crossed)
There are craziness around that time due to commonwealth games rehearsals + other stuff...but wed realllllllly love to come so well see what can be wrangled...Any idea on cost yet?


P.s. I trust this event will not be teaching good clean ethical values to our younger generations. None of this debauched 'Contact' fad thats been going around? redface
In my day we kept a respectful distance from our staves none of this raunchy debased rolling them about your body stuff. Well, never before the wedding night anywayfilthy wink

you want it feelthy or dont you? ubblol)



Well all I can say is that wicked (married) monkey Kyle McLean will be hooking his hooch about the hall, so there is a definite chance it will get down and dirty eek!!



I suggest you focus instead on the classical purity of a full extension Dom....;)



For costs.. to be advised very soon, and depends at this point on the costs of Jedi imports...
