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

oo you can if you like smile..I don't know how many people will even do my hoopy workshop, but the more hoopiness the more fun I can have at least ubblol
I'm planning on making more and I can bring them so yeh um..hmm yeh make some if you like biggrin hug
*yoinks a future honeycrackle*



What I sorted at the workshop we did was take orders for hoops and money. About $7 each it worked out to, and went down to local Bunnings and bought the makings for making the hoops. If you do that, get branch pruning secateur thingies to cut the tubing ..ssooooo easy. That way you are not bring a zillion hoops!
Maybe ask Lou what is local maybe..or Josh and Kate.

Posted:Hi Guys,

I have already sold 50 tickets to this years event. This includes lots of people from interstate and a few people from OS! So already a THIRD of the total tickets to the event have been sold.

So...if your thinking about going - commit and buy a ticket.
THERE WILL BE NO TICKET SALES ON THE DOOR!!

Email me on common-ground2006@hotmail.com for ticket details.

OR if your lucky enough to live in ye'ol'adelaide you can see me walking around under the bridge with pen, paper and a lot of colourful bit of string on Friday night - ask me for a ticket and I can sell you one in cash. I will be selling this week and next week. After that - you MISS out!

This week I will be under the Bridge late as I have some other commitments, but I should be there by 10pm.

Still not convinced it's going to be groovy??
Check out www.common-ground.net for more details about the workshop timetable and event listing...

Hope to be swamped with keen people on Friday.
Cheers,
Kate and the Common Ground team.


Love and Light

Posted:Yes riff-raff like that.

This is one of the reasons... however the main reasons are as follows:

1) The CFS would like to know approximate numbers for catering purposes before the date.

2) I collected heaps of money on the door last year and it was a bit uncomfortable having that much money floating around on site.

3) We can do a better budget if I know how much money we are starting with - which means more decorations - or less if we don't have the numbers

4) And most IMPORTANLY in this time of mobile phones and the notion of 'oh maybe if I feel like it on the day' I would like some commitment from people prior to waking up on the day and thinking oh yeah I might as well go. If you are thinking of going, buy a ticket. Sort it out. If the tickets were $100 then fair enough. But they are not - they are cheap as biggrin

... okies

Looking forward to seeing all of you's wink there!
Joy!

Posted:Fair enough. I was thinking have maybe half a dozen or so, for people that forgot to book, and what-not. Or if someone only hears about it in the last day or two beforehand.

I dunno, i might just be a contingency planner.

In which case, the plan is to ignore me.

mm not sure what is local to CG in form of bunnings.. up to miss hoopy loopy ezz.. tongue

in other news.. do bee doo.. (do bee!) wink
I'll be making name badges for CG again this year - which means i need to trouble you to let me know what you want on them.

Please send me these details:

Real Name:
Hop Name:
Background colour preference:

here's a pic of a bunch of last year's name badges

Avatars are pretty much the right size and everything as they are, unless you'd like to send a better quality, though they do have to be relatively small. Also, those with either animated avatars or no avatar, let me know what you'd like. smile

also planning on having a bunch of other badges (please do drop past -here- if you have any good ideas you'd like to see printed smile) which will most likely be sold along with some of miss sarah's creations ubbrollsmile

www.common-ground.net

- it has a timetable of workshops and a bit about the philosophy that Kate and I are using in our approach to the event. It also has menus for the meals, and other bits n pieces on it.

I hope that you will read it smile
