Hi Everyone,

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!

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

A very special thanks to Josh, Kate n co for pulling of an even better gathering this time around.

Clearly, their work has paid off and there was a *definite* acceleration in skill - oz twirlers have something to look forward to in the calendar to come together and skill swap the insane amount of talent that has boiled since the last gathering.

My hat goes off to contact chris (Cirque Mystique) who was leet last year... and now is absolutely killah on contact singles, doubles, triples and poi.



Thanks also to my work that needed me to fly back tonight... missing out on the wikkid 15 act fireshow. :weeps:



further images and perhaps some video to be uploaded to my website's CG 2005 gallery

That wouldn't, by any chance, be the English marmite that I left in your cupboard, would it! ubbangel

Looks like lots of fun was had!

Next year maybe!

I've just returned from Common Ground this year: easily the best and most random weekend of my life!

Thank you to Josh & Kate for organising this wonderful event, along with Biggins who got me to and from the grounds smile Thanks to all who ran the workshops & partook in my back-by-popular-demand yoga classes, and to all of those that gave me the bestest hugses i've ever received!

Looking forward to Common Ground '07! YARR! bounce

i posted that one from my mum's place^ my sister said i looked like a hippy... :hnn:

i'm back home now, and so glad i don't have to work today so i can stay and enjoy the afterglow a bit longer.

I feel so nice and rested, relaxed and loved after having so many nice hugs from so many wonderful people and soaking up some sunshine in the beautiful grass.

Is it the Truth?
Is it Fair to all concerned?
Will it build Goodwill and Better Friendships?
Will it be Beneficial to all concerned?

much love was spread, definately.

Razor's been whining all day, i don't think he understands why all the hippies didn't come home with us... he seems very sad and i don't know what to do to make him feel better.
