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

Bunnings here doesnt damn stock the blue line anymore either. Spent today chasing other suppliers then found Bunnings will do a special order to get it.

thanks..probably won't need help making them..it'll only take a minute..and I'm being fussy about the length this time which probably means I'll crack it at some stage, so probably safer if you steer clear of the flying cutting objects ubblol (ok I'm not reeally that bad tempered..*cough* most of the time*un-cough*)

But you can definatly help me with the workshop(if I'm the one doing them ?!?! haha)

My mum said I should try teach her because if I can teach her I can teach anyone ubblol ..and thats probably true!

hug me!

soooooooo workshop ideas/volunteers then? id like to see some more out of the box style workshop/eventy things

id like to see a pouncing while spinning workshop as a get to know everyone kinda thing .... while i think a heckling workshop run in conjunction could be fun i dont think it would set quite the right tone for ppl who are new/dont know us so well *looks at brett and russel*

id also be keen to see a contact jamming/running round each other kind of workshop to establish i dialogue of sorts for an interactive jamming session to cheesy music while pouncing thingy to be held later, i have lots of music/soundtracks that would be good for it .... mmmm muppets

volunteers to run em/help run em *looks at kyle ed and brett*

other ideas?

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourself, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous and talented? Who are you NOT to be?

Hi all,

I just need to remind people that you *can't* come onto the site until Friday afternoon.

If you get to Adelaide early you will need to find a HOP house to hang out in until Friday. However this shouldn't be a problem....

I think Brett has a few spaces? We have got one left (we already have 2 ppl staying at ours from Wed.)

Any other Adelaide peps willing to lend a piece of floor/bed until Friday?

Anyone need a place to stay??

Love and Light

Someone can stay in my double bed cos ill be at Bretts eating dahl and doing the happily ever after thing! biggrin

SERIOUSLY: I have some room if people want to pitch tents and have a shower only 10 min from the grassy fields of CG. Not quite as attractive as Bretts offer but spinny nuts more than welcome if needed just PM me. I look strange but am quite friendly.
