Posted:Belated Fire in the Hole reviewAmazing scenic drive through the blue mountains...in the driving rain

We got to the turn off for the party, and found...a locked Gate...nobody around, and no mobile reception...hmmm?.what to do. We drove up to the Zig Zag railway, and called someone who might know what was going on...assurances that someone would come pick us up...no joy

Headed back down to the site (well - at least where we thought it would be) found a bunch of Vans...ppl milling about...decision is made...Mt Banks it is.Fortunately our driver was very familiar with the area, and led the way to the venue...its getting dark...time to set up.Due to the outstanding efforts of the crew, the site was set up just as the first punters..(and rain) started to arrive...I wandered around feeling like a 5th wheel for a while, til there was enough set up so that Kate and I could get cracking on the Art work distribution, cool! Kate went to crash in the chill tent - while I worked on a bit more string art.Then I stopped doing stuff and started to enjoy the music...danced around... brilliant...happy vibe, friendly ppl ohhhhh...nice...this is what a Trance party should always be like ('cept the rain of course)!The music was, from start to finish outstanding...every set that I paid attention to (and I paid a lot of attention) was well mixed, and had great track selection...Mr Jaimz, some of those tracks you played did my head in. I'm sure you have some idea of which ones I'm talking about

Fire twirling when the rain paused, was really nice...lots of nice ppl, lots of outstanding skills...especially Sarah (go the mistress of the crosses), Finn - I don't think I got to tell you in person, but your twirling is the most beautiful I've seen - Frenzie - mad skills! Toby (Bezerker?) - an intensity that was a little scary - Bobrob and Heather - precision personified, and the most technically challenging poi work I've ever had the priviledge of watching. Get yourselves on video, the rest of the world needs to know!

Then the clouds parted, the sun shone through and we were bathed in the majestic radiance of that great Fire Poi in the sky

Walked up to gaze at the amazing grand Canyon-esque view to be enjoyed only a minutes walk from the party. Watched in facinated horror as two crazy women stretched a single piece of chewing gum in one continuous length to about 10m long (you know who you are!) The great music kept coming...more dancing...coffee provided! Mmm...bliss with a 4/4 kick of caffiene - just the way I like it.Eventually the gene ran out of fuel for the last time, and all the trancers began to slow down...smooth packup - many smiles, goodbyes and we were away...I met so many great ppl that night!I met so many nice ppl in the brief time I spent in Sydney; Hellos in no particular order;Sarah, Steve, Jude, Shanna, Toby, Simon, Tom, Sam, Mark, Mel, Bob, Heather and John.Thanks for the memories, and I hope to see some of you in June.[Josh] And Sarah, just cuz you asked specifically - every party is different, you will see what I mean when (yes when
