Posted:I've had an amazing time this weekend so I wanted to say a big thank you to everyone who was there! I think everyone went home with a brain crammed full of information to work with for a looong time.

Special thanks to organisers and teachers. I know a lot of thought and work went into making this weekend happen and be a wonderful success, so a huge round of applause all round!

We're now relaxing and letting muscles recover, before hitting juggle jam tonight for yet more playtime! smile

Posted:How about an Official Uberoz Photos/vids Links Thread? From genius to sillies, workshops to pool-lilo-wibbling, manequins to movement, fire and no fire, tiger balmed nipples to a record number of people juggling in a kitchen, post-pull-off grins to post-belting grimaces. I'd love as many photos from this weekend to do art from.

Cheers everyone for a very tasty weekend!

What a most fantastically magnificent weekend was UberOz!
Mucho gratituitous big hugs & thanks to absolutely everyone who went. Will not forget it.

Random info: Don't ever apply tigerbalm to the eyes..... accidentally rubbed my eye about 5 mins after applying it to other parts of me bod & i had pinkeye for about an hour...
oooh! i found tigerbalm from singapore... but it was 'soft' variety. doesn't do much for the eyes...
