Thanks to those lovely ones who have been sending their earlybirdies in... we are gathering up to the 'earlybird' cut off #, so if you know you have a mate coming, let them know to let me know.... it's not much of a price difference, but sometimes every little bit helps, eh....

Hey Ry welcome to the thread!! Where ya been!

Oooh pixielack, I know, shocking isn't it!!!! Many tears have been shed! They have more or less promised to crash the partay though so not all is lost hug



Hey Gabe.. yeah sorry I'm not getting more into this than I know I should be. Just a couple things up in the air at the moment, and I'm not sure what's going on. Not sure whether I can put my name down for uberoz, but I do want to go. I'll let you know, but probably quite late. Soz.. hug

Posted:Hey that's OK Ry, I know this is a busy time for you and end of uni and all that. Thanks for the hug though and hug back at ya! I've been delightedly distracted with Woodford stuff the last few days... I know that once we hit the ground running there, with TePOOKa andprobalby hundreds playing in a grand central space, UberOz will fly along as the cherry on the cake!

(Yeah, I know, I should learn to juggle and leave the metaphors alone!)

Posted:Hey Knoxious, that link doesn't seem to work...

there are threads
about this topic though.. taking gear on planes seems to be more a problem in anticipation than reality.. I've never known anyone to actually have trouble... mailing is possible too though if someone is worried, I'm quite happy to have a few parcels turn up at my address smile if necessary

Didn't we start about 9am at Uberpoi? But don't worry, you'll be so keen by what you seen on Friday afternoon that on Saturday you'll turn up early, stay up all night and be there for whenever we pull together enough energy to start on Sunday.
And as it's hot in Oz starting earlier means it's cooler and I can sweat less. Thank you!

Still got to put together workshops! Too many ideas to fit in!
