Posted:Hello all my lil fuzzy wuzzy Moonfesties!*:.



mmMMMmmmm. Well there is certainly an extra snuggley vibe about at the moment, huh? Must be time for the Warm Fuzzy Winter Moonfests!*:. Get out all ya warmest winter woollies, fluffy monster feet, beanies, braziers, gloves, woolly wraps and extra good blankety goodness!*:. And of corse dont forget your usual Moonfest toys drums, fire toys (+ fire fuel and safety gear) dancing feet, wiggles, huggles, and festive happy smiley faces.:::*



As it gets cooler the ocean looks beautifully crystal clear with those sunshiney sparkles and gorgeous sunsetty colours in the arvo and if youre lucky you could spot a dolphin or too splashing about in the bay.:* Now, with the 10pm curfew for the common curtesy of not waking the locals too late at night with drumming and all our usual moonfesty shenanigans, Im thinking we can start gathering a little earlier in the afternoon so we still get a good dose of moonfesty goodness before its time to quieten down and go to bed ourselves. hnnnnnnn.:* So come on down a little earlier for a play in the sunshine and see the gorgeous luminous moon rise over an ocean of sunset colours:::::*



Warm Fuzzy Winter Moonfest Dates are:



*:.June ~ Monday 12th

*:.July ~ Tuesday 11th

*:.August ~ Wednesday 9th



Then the date for the Spring Moon Fest is:



*:.September ~ Friday 8th



Ooooh and just so all you lovelies know, I will be away for Burning Man in the US in August (flying on my birthday weeeeeee) so will *just* make it back in time for the Spring Moonfest so perhaps a lil jetlagged but totally full up the tips of my dreads with festival magicks.:* for spring moonfest Im sure Ill be there, but barely there hehehe maybe a lil bit of a sleepy pixie, (but a happy sleepy pixie i'm sure) perhaps if anyone has yummy ideas for some lovely Spring Moon theming candle circle goodness a performance or interactive activity of some kind that youd like to do or facilitate it would be wonderful*:. I will be away from around mid August till like the day before Spring Moonfest We have all of Winter Warm Fuzzy Festies to plan something yum..:::* be imaginative, creative, spontaneous! Come be the festival Festive~All .ALL FESTIVE its the beautiful festive people that gather each month under the full moon who make this the gorgeous gathering what it is.:*



Feel free to bring along a Brazier for extra warmth for the winter moonfests but please take full responsibility for it throughout the night and dispose of any left over coals responsibly Council rule is no open fires on the beach but braziers with BBQ coals are fine so long as we act responsibly.



Moonfest is a drug and alcohol free, all ages gathering please take full responsibility of yourself, your children and have a general respect for those around you (something which goes without saying in such a lovely environment as this I think)



See all you gorgeous people on Monday for the first of the Warm Fuzzy Winter Moon Festies::::*



Much love and warm fuzzy pixie wiggles*:.



Love Elke (.:*moonpixie*:.)

Posted:I suspect we cant aford and probably wont be allowed a bonfire permit now the bushfire season is apon us, same for any large wax cardboard and reo mesh creations like the one at the Northey st solstice this year. So what about a 200 fire staff formation spinnoff or something, no doubt with several practice runs thuoghout the night aswell. I might bring some fruit to share , subject to ripeness and the flying fox, possum and drought.

Posted:what a gorgeous gorgeous night it was last night smile ubblove smile

only thing not good for me was the amount of frickin rubbish i had to pick up at the end of the night and the majority of it being booze botles and cans....

soapbox

i think i picked up at least 3 big bags full of the buggers! grrrr angry which after a long night and feeling sleepy and jetlagged was not fun at all and just made me cranky

mad2

Of corse i know you beautiful HoP crowd know the go, and don't drink or leave behind rubbish... ubblove you guys rock and i love you biggrin .... just thinking a bit of awareness needs to be spread about in order to keep the gathering safe, happy and all ages friendly.... smile*:.

speaking of which there were some gorgeous kiddies there last night too ubblove .... some of whom didn't seem to have consiencious perrents who would let them rome through the middle of the fire space.... this too conserned me a lot

soapbox

i think just some general awareness for this being a drug and alcohol free gathering and for everyone to be (and make sure your kids are)... space conscious.

ok blah blah blah

...end of rant

apart from those few things... I had a beautiful night biggrin ubblove hug grouphug it was so lovely to see all your gorgeous faces again biggrin

the circle had a yummy feel too grouphug like i *know* the whole flower lanterns and central lotus thing has SO been done before, but it had a magick sparkle last night to me that seemed all sacred and magickal.... one little girl even came up to me and asked "am i allowed to dance?" heeeeee biggrin what a cutey so obviously i said "of corse darling" ubblove

And didn't the MOON look absofrickinlutely GoRgEoUs!!!! as it rose over the bay oh my gosh! ubblove like this big golden dome rising out of the water

hnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn ubblove

it's nice to be home ...:::*

Posted:well said pixie!

When we were leaving there were a few cops hanging around. It looked like they were about to book the cars that were parked along the driveway at the bottom carpark. There was also a fire truck there too. Are we that dangerous??? I'm sure they have better things to do.

biggrin

I just wish that whoever had taken my poi had returned them ubbcrying

Great night though

I was quite worried about this. It is only going to be a matter of time before some kid gets wacked in the eye with a flaming piece of kevlar and the whole event get shut down. frown

Any idea's what can be done about this very unsafe aspect of Moonfest ? Although I think most of the responsibility should be left with the PARENTS !!!! ubbidea


On a nice note though, was great to see some many spinners in one place. Moonfest Rocks !

Posted:I think personal contact is usually the best way with this.. a few of us going around reminding parents, shepherding kids off, etc. I spoke to one set of parents and the kids were kept back after that.. another guy was giving his girl a first spin so he was supervising her... but she did keep standing there when she wasn't lit up. I think that's something to reinforce.. people of any age standing around the spinning area.

Same with plastic bags for rubbish collection. Going round saying hi and handing them out during the night to groups. I'm willing to do that, I always seem to be doing that at festivals!

in fact I might make a friendly little sign "thanks for taking your rubbish with you" to attach to the lamp post at the base of the hill ramp for next moonfest

Elke, Jodie from Gooble asked me if you were still thinking of making a moonfest poster with dates for the whole year? I told her I'd pass that on... smile

Exactly ... it's not just the kids... i've often had to remind people that the lower grassed/sandy area is a fire space and that fire twirlers can't always see past the swirls of fire around them to an unlit up person standing about the space. and yeah like you said gabe, if we just remind these people they usually get the idea

i think it's just about spreading the awareness of it all again

Jen i love your "thamks for taking your rubbish with you" sign idea, that would be awesome hug

I might also send out an email to all the moonfest web members (some of whom might be knew and not know the jist of what moonfest is about yet) and just erging people to spread the awareness of safety, space awareness, responsiblity for rubbish and that moonfest is drug and alcohol free. smile

Thanks for all your support guys smile hug ubblove

Posted:on friday I nearly hit 4 or 5 people who were walking through the twirling area. 3 of them were adults who gave me filthy looks after I stopped to let them past... I'm pretty sure I didn't do anything wrong, but It made me feel angry that these people were blaming me because they weren't smart enough to walk *around* people... I mean walking through a crowd of people twirling staves and poi isn't the smartest thing... then while i was twirling some glow poi, two filthy kids (literally filthy, I'm not just bagging them) ran up into the path of my poi. I had to stall a ttn, then they tried to detatch the glow unit from the end of them :O It's bad enough that they stop me twirling, but to steal my poi? seriously... there was also a large alcohol prescence there as was mentioned earlier. i tried to mention it to a few people and asked them to put away their alcohol (and in one case cannabis) and got abused frown There definitely needs to be more awareness about the rules. It was an excellent night and the fact that the police turned up and helped keep it under control was good. they didn't disrupt twirlers who were acting responsibly, but were nice when they advised those who weren't smile



overall, a great night biggrin

Posted:Brisbane City Council rang me about a complaint letter outlining a few points made about the consumption of alcohol, alcohol related rubbish, noise, "children running through the park with fire" ( rolleyes ) and the size of it being too big to be called a gathering

I have to get a licence for it by the next moonfest {{{stressed}}}

she said when they appoved the event it was only a small gathering ... but now it's a lot bigger and needs a licence.

slight pannic attack eek

i've created a monster!!! eek eek eek

hehe

so she is sending me the paper work... I'm hoping it dosen't cost anything.... coz well there is no money exchange at moonfest.

fingers crossed it can all be worked out smoothly
