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:Something to consider....

So lovely friends of ours are doing this in the alternative chill spacec. If you have stuff to contribute please bring it along and be part of a little sweet piece of history...

A space will be set up for people to come and do crafty stuff eg. knitting,
crochet, drawing, writing etc. In this space we will have paper, pencils, oil
pastels and a rug to be made. Please feel free to bring your own things to make
stuff and share.

It would be good to have a set time or two per day when people can come to the
space and share what they have made/written/drawn with each other.

The Rug -
We hope to create a rug that everyone has added to, a common-ground rug, that
can be used at common events such as under the bridge etc.
The base for the rug is currently 1m wide and 4.5m long. It will be made by
stitching wool and strips of fabric into the base to make it all soft and
colourful and pretty. Please bring contributions for the rug such as wool and
old clothes to cut up (t-shirt material is good as it is non-fraying) and spend
a little time over the weekend to add your bit. There will also be some space to
put your name on it.

Hope this is enough info.
Have a nice day!
Belinda & Glenn


Love and Light

Posted:Best thing for sticks is to make sure they dont stink of fuel, totally wrap them up so the air people cant see what they are, then check them in as oversized luggage.

If questioned as to what they are, reply "Juggling equupment" and you will have no problems.

And dont say more about them than the bare minimum necisary -> if they dont ask, you dont have to lie.
