I like to suggest we create a safe and comfortable space where no one feels left out because of any perceived lack of skills. And everyone has a fantastic time, and goes home grinning from ear to ear, like biggrin

Hey Luke,
It's also very easy to get to the venue from the airport by train.. change at Bowen Hills onto the Ferny Grove line and get off at Gaythorne. Hillbrook School and the Scout Hall are about 5 minutes easy walk. I will post exact directions on the website tonight...

Posted:Just a quick update,

I fly to brisbane then will be driving down to melbourne. ANyone wanna quick ride down there. Probably only have say 4 days to do it. Too quick i know but seemed vaguely sensible at the time.

Then the real big question. Me and rebecca will be in melbourne for a while, me for a month and her for a year. She is moving there to work as a nurse and i'm going to hang out for a while.

Are there any lovely spinners out there that could help us out with accomodation please. Rebecca's pretty stressed. We can pay money and i can teach many cool things to do with socks and diabolos. She'll be looking for a flat as soon as we get there around the 13th feb and starts work on the 20th. Any help will be extremely appreciated.

Arashi, thanks for the threat of going tarzan, although i have no idea what that is.
