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:righto you rippas!!!!



just to let youknow that i have just sent out an email to all thosse that have given us email addresses. this email has directions for public transporters and driving types. if you have a ticket sorted in some way and do not have the directions please send me a PM or email the commonground email address



common-ground2006@hotmail.com





Driving Instructions



Get to Adelaide city centre,



Find North Terrace & head out of city eastwards (past university and hospital on left).



Get in the left hand/middle lane and follow road round to left (past botanic gdns)



Continue straight out of town (past parkland on right) and onto Payneham Road



Follow Payneham Road out of town. At first major lights (landmark = Maid and Magpie pub) follow road to left.



Continue straight.



At next MAJOR lights (junction of Portrush Rd & Payneham Road) go straight over junction then get in right hand lane. Follow to end of Payneham Road, stay in right hand lane.



At MAJOR junction (just after woolworths servo, on left), get into third lane (you want to go straight on).



Go straight onto Montacute Road (not Lower NE Road which forks to left and not right onto Glynburn Road)



Follow Montacute Road, over two largish junctions (Newton Rd & Stradbroke Rd).

Note: Coles is on your left at the junction of Stradbroke & Montacute for foodies and drinkies





Go straight over Roundabout at Stradbroke Rd and keep going straight, past houses and out onto country road.



Follow road for Approximately 3kms, past Morialta Conservation area (right), CFS Fire Station (Right).



Prepare to turn right. Youre almost there, no more of these dodgy directions



Shortly after Fire Station take the turning to your right (Institute Road), take this and drive down Common Ground Site (left hand side).

Posted:the weather is looking pretty good;

Friday Fine. Partly cloudy. Min 9 Max 19
Saturday Fine. Mostly sunny. Min 8 Max 25
Sunday Showers developing. Min 14 Max 29
Monday Showers clearing. Min 10 Max 17
Tuesday Fine. Partly cloudy. Min 8 Max 19

but remember your woolies! we are looking at some chilly nights - the CG site is in the mt lofty ranges and averages about 2-3 degrees cooler than in the city - so we could be looking at some 5 degree over night temperatures.

also it will probly rain over night on Sunday night, so bring a brollie and / or a raincoatr

woo getting excited!!
