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

hellohellohellohello!!!

first off, thank you all for making it a fandabbytastic weekend. i had a right laugh and although i only attended one workshop (so i could get my dreads fixed). It was great. So much so that i'll be back next year....from NZ....

also, at the request of flynt and a few other ppls i'm posting some links to some online mixes that i've put on the world wide t'interweb. some are chilled (the bottom link) and some are more upbeat (top link).

https://www.seph.net/viewdj.php?djuin=30

https://www.seph.net/viewdj.php?djuin=31

as far as record labels go. if you wanna delve deeper into the world of chilled beats and proggy psy trance you can do far worse than hunt down releases on the following record labels

chilled

Liquid Sound Design
Alepha Zero
Chillcode
Ultimae
Twisted
Interchill
TIP World

Upbeat

Iboga Records
Flow Records
Spintwist Records
Domo Records
Digital Structures
Plusquam

and if you get as far as buying this stuff

www.saikosounds.com

is a good bet. cheaper than the shops, mail order, good service and importantly 4 minute online samples. So you can see if you like it.

finally, as far as music next year goes, well basically i just commandeered the dex this year as no-one else seemed to be around and up for it. but i believe that others will be invited to bring stuff for next year. now i believe that the emphasis will be on "nice, outdoors, in the sun" music so world music/latin/drumming/dub etc etc.....
i may be speaking out of turn (josh can correct me on this) but i believe that this does not include metal/happy hardcore/gabba and other such depressing music types.

okies enufff from me.....was great to meet ppl and i'll hopefully catch you next year

cheers

damn right, next year there will be no computer based tunage without computer-based cordage..thats the werd on the street.



but yeh, oooooba keen on variety of music, whilst we (me and josh and kate) love our psy-trance....we also accept that occasionally there may be room for a "bit" of variety.....well....now and again..........and .....well......only at things like common ground.....*drifts off into a day dream of seven days of sun, sangria and psy-trance in spain*

if that juggling ball is a grey/silver contact ball, that's pretty dirty, it might be mine. but i gave that to bunny. i'm not entirely sure if she knows she's meant to keep it or not, but meh.

And if the sunglasses are bolle safety type ones, they're possibly mine that puk swapped mine for. I think they're a little scratched.

Hello to all you crazy kids sounds like everyone had a right hoot which is good to see. I kept asking people if they were having fun and then I realised that it was about the most redundant thing I could possibly say. Thankyou to everyone who added their positive vibes and hard work. Big smiles and hugs for you all.

Hope to see you all again next year, Marty

Well top effort to all who helped put this on, and to everyone who contributed by just being there and sendin out all those positive vibes. Was impossible to feel bad at that place.



It is great to meet so many people with a similar perspective and be able to talk sh** about sh** and be on the same wavelength yeah.



I reckon I learned a fair bit, the workshops and trickswaps were real helpful. Great to see so many talented twirlers and jugglers dancers and all that jazz...



Apart from the Hippies, all good people wink



hmm I guess what I'm saying is damnit I already miss you guys and can't wait for next year.



yeah top effort putting this thing on!

if the juggling ball is fairly small, white and made up of four sections then it is mine.
