Posted:Hi Everyone,



****TICKETS HAVE SOLD OUT****



Unless you have already talked to us, you will not be able to purchase tickets, anymore. If you missed out, hopefully we'll seeya next year smile



****NewsFLASH 27/08/06****



Site goes online tonight www.common-ground.net



Workshop timetable is up - if you think you can help with any of the workshops (or even if you think you can run one!!) please let me know, I'd like to organise at least one person to run each, and a couple of supporters for the big ones.



****NewsFLASH 25/8/06****



Roll UP! Roll UP! Roll UP!



GET YOUR COMMON GROUND TICKETS ONLINE NOW!!



100 Online Tickets @ $20



Please email: common-ground2006@hotmail.com



for account details.



Looking forward to seeing you all at Common Ground.



K8 - and the Common Ground Team.



-----------------------------------



If you want to see how much Fun was had at Common Ground (or you just like to be reminded) check out this;



Common Ground 05



Everything else is unconfirmed as such - so if you can think of anything that might be relevant to a big group of spinners living together for 4 days let me know by PM.



The local CFS and Progress Association will be providing affordable meals for brekkie and dinner on Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday morning. The've been told that there will be many vegos - so each meal should be vego friendly, or have vego options.



****update**** The meals will be;



Breakfast on Saturday Sunday and Monday

;

Bacon + Egg between two pieces of toast or Egg + Tomato between two pieces of toast $4

and / or

Thick Pancakes for $1 each with Jam or Lemon and Sugar topping

and / or

Cereal for $2 a bowl (cornflakes or wheatbix)



Tea or Coffee for $1 / mug



Dinner on Friday night



will be a big pot of Pumpkin soup for a gold coin donation per mug full, with a few bread rolls n stuff



Dinner on Saturday night



Tacos with your choice of beef based or bean based filling and salad $2 each



and/or



a big Baked Potato with either of the above fillings and / or coleslaw n cheese $4 each



Dinner on Sunday night



Vege Burger or Minute-Steak Burger with salad $3

Beef snag in a piece of bread for $1



So yeah the CFS and Progress association are getting right behind it all, and I think the food and prices they are charging are quite reasonable smile



Please note - no lunch will be provided - you will need to sort this out yourself. There is a supermarket 5 minutes drive from the site tho - so it will be easy as.







We will be opening the site about lunch time on Friday the 29th of September and will be expecting to close the site for cleaning on Monday Afternoon (ie, everyone should be out by then smile). Between those times we will be expecting a lot of magic, learning and laughing with a huge group of friendly spinny / juggly types.





We will be following a similar structure to that we used last year - ie workshops, chill parties, fire spectacular show to which the local community will be invited (who LOVED the show last year btw), Drums n Bonfire - with the addition of a festival day with all day outdoor music, chilled out workshops and more.



checkout the timetable for the workshops;



www.common-ground.net/timetable.html



This year we will have improved toilet facilities (ie more of them smile) and improved camping.



The site is limited to about 150 ppl so pre-booking by bank transfer is the best way to confirm your space. we've had a steady series of ticket requests coming in, so if you want to come, dont dilly dally! Get your ticket now!



hug



Seeya,



Josh

Posted:i've been giving him lots of pats and cuddles (even though he doesn't much like sitting on my lap) as i usually do anyways, cuz he's so cute, how can i not? but he's still not happy. i'm not giving him my poi though, he'll eat them.

i've also taken him outside for a while to play in the grass... he's sleeping under my desk now, cutie.

Posted:Hey all,

Just wanted to say I had a great time! Best weekend EVER! I've been lurking on the hop forum for a while, but none of you knew me before CG. Even though i was a stranger you guys all made me feel welcome and loved. I'm so glad I came along and met you guys.

You're all beautiful.

Lotsa love and hugs,

Mike. (From Perth, aka the guy with Henna.)

Posted:yeah hi everyone, can I just emphasise that we (kate and I) really really really need footage of the whole event to prove it happened. We didnt end up with any from last year and it kind made it difficult to show what happened.

So yeah please send me footage (PM me for address details), and I'll pass it on to Matt cuz hes intent on creating a 10 minute or so highlights vid that we'll whack up online.

Thanks!

Josh

Posted:awesome awesome weekend.

Just got back to melbs, now off to nz,

Huge thanks to josh, kate and mardy (sp?) and everyone else who made this weekend such a great success.

Josh: I captured that whole tae to your puter and when i checked it it hadn't saved it, very weird. SO i set it running again with max file size set to 2 Gb, so it should have cut up the whole hour into 10 min sections. There's still another bit of footage. I'll get all footage to you asap and have a fiddle with it.

Just to clarify: Everyone send all pictures and videos to josh so he can archive them on the site. I can get going on a 10 minute promo now with the footage i have and drop in kyles footage when i get it (and anyone elses).

SO get all your photos and send them to josh, go on, you know you want to. Do it now otherwise you'll forget, go on smile

Big Love,

matt

I have to say that was the greatest weekend I have had away in ages.
Thank you so much to Josh and Kate for making this happen. To everyone who got behind this, congratulations, you made the event fantastic!
I would name names, but I really dont want to leave anyone out, but you know who you are and you know your help and hard work is appreciated.
Josh my piccies will be in you hot little hand on the weekend... all 600+ of them. biggrin (my Mum assures me that I have a problem and should be seeking help about it, 600+ in 3 days she thinks is madness, I'm not so sure!)

To everyone new I met, and the ones I already knew... you are all gorgeous! grouphug
