Posted:Um, I may not be able to make this after all...

I'm getting paid work in Europe over the summer, performing in Germany, austria and Italy with Jea9... and we have a deal teaching kids in germany from august 6th to 13th...

If my not speaking German is a problem, then I'll come back for Bloom, otherwise, I really should stay where the money lies...

Sorry dude. I'll have a scout around and see if I can find a contact juggler who'll perform with you in my stead, if you like? (I highly recommend a coleman wink )

Posted:mmm... lovely little festie... only about 1000 people as well! biggrin

burnt toast (feat chimera) as usual on top form and the fire show was pretty funny too ubblol ...except for oli's hand... hopefully next time people might spend more time sorting out more fire blankets than G just before a show! frown spank

highlights were probably finding the lost disco, watching the bays and that beatboxer after, helping the wonky woods live up to their name, the workshops on sunday and some fire perfromance on the sat night. smile

hope everyone got home ok.. took us 6 hours due to flooding frown oh well....
